     34The latest version is '''4.6.3''' released on 19.10.2010. This is the latest 4.6 release of Qt from Nokia. This is mostly a bug fix release (over 35 bug fixes, many DIVE and DnD problems were solved). Besides, there is a bunch of performance improvements and a number of new features which include OpenSSL support necessary to browse web-sites using the HTTPS protocol in QWebKit-based browsers as well as MySQL and PostgresSQL database Qt plugins.

    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.
