Why no qt4 based version of Opera in Mint?

Post by cdysthe »

Hi,

I really like that Mint offers Opera out of the box. However, I do not understand why the qt3 based version is offered when there's qt4 based builds available. The qt4 based builds looks and integrates much better into the Mint dekstop. I've been using qt4 builds myself for quite a while without any problems at all. In fact, I think the Mint-packaged Opera 10 would be my last qt3 based application overall.

How does it do that ?
-as to why, it is the release cycle of the Mint distribution..

I have Opera 10 from the Mint repositories and it looks fine..
