    It's not like that. After releasing a minor version (4.x.0) the development switches immediately to the next minor version (4.x+1.0). All releases made in the "old" branch (4.x.y) are bugfixes and maintenance and are also incorporated into the trunk (the main development branch). So Qt4.5 snapshots were available immediately after releasing 4.4.0.

    AFAIK it won't be a revolution, the similar to 4.3 compared to 4.2.

    Something minor I noticed is that we're finally going to have close buttons in tabs.

    Hmm.... it would be better if the button was a general purpose button. One can always connect it to deleteLater() or similar but sometimes the button could be used for something else. Who wants to file a suggestion?

    QTabBar seems to already treat it as a general purpose button. You can even set the tab button on the left or right side of the tab.

    I don't have my notes here, but as far as I remember it will be Q1 2009 (or a bit sooner).
