    26 As of the 5th of February, 2010, the '''Qt framework version 4.5.1 for OS/2 is generally available! ''' This means that the major parts of the Qt library have been ported to OS/2 which makes dozens of Qt 4 applications potentially available to the OS/2 platform. The last release brought the complete Drag And Drop support, Session Management support, SQLite3 support, the Qt Designer application. Qt 4 for OS/2 is distributed in a convenient way using WarpIn packages which makes it very easy to install and use. netlabs.org maintains a so-called official build of the Qt 4 library which ensures that all Qt applications use the same set of runtime libraries which saves resources and improves general stability. Below you will find download links to the available packages along with their descriptions.

    36 Version '''4.5.1 GA''' is available for downloading in the following packages and formats:
    37 ||'''GCC 442 runtime library'''||[ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/qt4/gcc-lib-4_4_2-20091204.wpi WPI]||This WPI is needed for all Qt installations||
    38 ||'''Qt runtime libraries and plugins'''||[ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/qt4/4.5.1-ga/qt-lib-4_5_1-ga-noxwpdep.wpi WPI]||This is the official Qt 4 runtime that is necessary to run applications created using the Qt4 framework. Note that you will also need [ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/qt4/gcc-lib-4_4_2-20091204.wpi this] GCC 4 runtime library for all recent Qt 4 builds. '''UPDATE''': the WPI archive has been improved to install on systems with no XWorkplace/XCenter installed.||
    39 ||'''Qt development libraries and tools'''||[ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/qt4/4.5.1-ga/qt-dev-4_5_1-ga.wpi WPI]||This is necessary to compile applications created using the Qt4 framework (make sure you read [source:/tags/4.5.1-os2-ga/README.OS2#L188 this] to understand what this package is for).[[BR]]Requires the '''Qt runtime libraries and plugins''' package.
    40 ||'''Qt demo and example applications'''||[ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/qt4/4.5.1-ga/qt-examples-4_5_1-ga.wpi WPI]||Standard Qt demo and example applications (with the source code) that demonstrate the Qt4 features.[[BR]]Requires '''Qt runtime libraries and plugins''' and '''Qt development libraries and tools'''.
    41 ||'''Full Qt source code'''||[ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/qt4/4.5.1-ga/qt-all-opensource-src-4_5_1-os2-ga.zip ZIP]||Take this if you want to build the Qt library yourself (recommended as the '''development environment''' if you regularly develop or port Qt applications).||
     36 * Complete printing support through CUPS (requires [http://svn.netlabs.org/ecups/wiki eCUPS] to be installed).
     37 * Painting in widgets using DIVE, which makes all graphical operations up to 4 times faster comparing to 4.5.1 GA (the actual numbers depend on the combination of the graphics hardware, video driver and the current screen mode). The non-DIVE painting mode is also optimized, with the performance boost varying from 30% to 200%.
     38 * webkit module (used in many complex web-based applications such as web browsers to implement the JavaScript support).
     39 * help module (used for context sensitive help in applications).
     40 * Qt Assistant tool.
