Ok, I understand.

I always had a copy of Qt 3.2.1 Non-Commerical Edition for Windows that came 
with the book "C++ GUI Programming with Qt3" ISBN 0-13-124072-2.

However, I can't see how the release of application source code can be in 
conflict with Trolltech's IP as long as none of the Qt3 resource files are 
included with the distribution.

Porting to qt4 shouldn't be much of a problem though.
