Summary     : The shared library for the Qt 3 GUI toolkit
Description :
Qt is a GUI software toolkit which simplifies the task of writing and
maintaining GUI (Graphical User Interface) applications
for the X Window System.

Qt is written in C++ and is fully object-oriented.

This package contains the shared library needed to run Qt 3
applications, as well as the README files for Qt 3.

Update Information:

This update fixes CVE-2013-4549 (XML Entity Expansion Denial of Service) in Qt 3. See the Qt Project Security Advisory
 for details: http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/announce/2013-December/000036.html

In addition, this update fixes:
* QTBUG-35459, a too low character limit for XML entities enforced by the fix for CVE-2013-4549 that was breaking real-world XML files (in particular, the KatePart Lilypond syntax highlighting description),
* QTBUG-35460, a misspelling in the error message produced by the CVE-2013-4549 fix when the character limit for XML entities was exceeded,
* some minor format string abuse that was probably not exploitable (most instances definitely weren't).

* Tue Jan 14 2014 Kevin Kofler <Kevin at tigcc.ticalc.org> - 3.3.8b-56
- work around -Werror=format-security false positives (#1037297)
* Mon Jan 13 2014 Kevin Kofler <Kevin at tigcc.ticalc.org> - 3.3.8b-55
- fix QTBUG-35459 (too low entityCharacterLimit=1024 for CVE-2013-4549)
- fix QTBUG-35460 (error message for CVE-2013-4549 is misspelled)
* Thu Dec  5 2013 Kevin Kofler <Kevin at tigcc.ticalc.org> - 3.3.8b-54
- backport CVE-2013-4549 fix from Qt 4
