Using Qt Assistant as a Custom Help Viewer OK Mentions CD-ROMs like it's state of the art, so it sounds super-old. Talks about Qt 4.4 like it's the latest version. Leena
Qt Assistant http://doc-snapshot.qt-project.org/5.0/assistant.html OK Screenshot says "Qt 4.4" and has a HUGE Trolltech-logo :P. Mentions of Qt 4.4.0 and Qt 4.4.1 in examples. Lots of Qt 4.4 screenshots done on Windows XP. Maybe we should update those? Claims Assistant is better than a web browser since it can do full text search, which we plan to implement in the web page as well? Also, Google might have something to cover that stuff. Leena

Fix: There are several general issues here:

  1. All the "editions" pages should be merged, and should talk about "licensing" instead, and be consistent with Digia messaging. (update: https://codereview.qt-project.org/#change,40943 fixes some of this)
  2. The "Third party licenses" and "other licenses" pages are overlapping, possibly outdated and hard to read. Should be merged, checked and given a proper layout.
  3. It is not clear why many of the single 3rparty license pages here should deserve their own pages instead of just being part of the "third party licenses" list. Presumable most or all of them should simply be merged into that page.
