PyQt in experimental

Postby Lavene » 2007-03-07 12:07

Anyone using PyQt4 from experimental? I need version 4.1 but I'm hesitant to install it...

Rats!! For the first time the loooong freeze in Etch really irritates me... :evil:

No problems so far.. I tried to create simple and complex GUIs and everything worked wonderfully with PyQT4.. My advice is to try it out, because incase it wouldn't work, you can downgrade it easily as it doesn't depend heavily on something.. :)

Great, thanks :)
I'll give it a go and we'll see.

But it is a real problem. According to bug #397551 Etch will be released with v4.0.1 so if you write an application using the new features in 4.1 (setOpenExternalLinks in my case) it will not run on Debian Stable systems. And v4.1 was released on 4 November 2006... that makes 4.0, which is a programming tool, pretty much obsolete IMHO.

I usually don't say this, but Etch is going to be like Edgy; a fiasko :(

Naw... I don't think so. It will be business as usual, just like when Sarge went stable. The servers (of which there are *a lot*) will be upgraded to Etc while the average desktop user will stick with testing and hoping that things will be better when Lenny goes stable... which is unlikely... and the cycle will repeat it self. :)
