Icaros Desktop 2.0 is completely different from previous releases.

On power2people.org a bounty was opemed for the goal to port the C++ class library Qt to AROS. The conditions of the bounty are complied with, if the modules QtCore, QtNetwork, QtGui, QtScript and QtXml were ported. Additionally the Qt-based Youtube-browser SMTube must be available in a working version.
Currently AROS does not support dynamic linking of libraries. Therefore the port may be a Static Library. Szilárd 'BSzili' Biró again agreed to undertake the bounty - but will start his work after finishing his college which could last still nine months.
