1.9.x is a *development* version, and there is no timeline for making it 
stable. There are many problems in it, and I will continue breaking things 
inside until I'm statisfied :-)

If you want to use it as it is a stable version, you should do it at your own 
risk. I won't hear you crying :-)

Elsewhere, I'm sure that installing the Qt library on the The Ubuntu is very 
easy. I installed the Debian gambas packages on a Ubuntu Live-CD in a few 
mouse clicks, and the only problem I had is that QT fonts were too large.
