I think that is good news. Please provide further details.

For example, in Slackware poppler no longer is built with Qt3 support.

Does adding the new poppler-tqt package overcome that problem? Does poppler-tqt install header files to /usr/include/poppler/Qt3? Or does poppler-tqt install headers that provide the same support as building poppler with Qt3 support but only TDE packages know where to find those headers? In other words, the Qt3 support is unique only to TDE and no other system packages can find that support?

Looks to me like building tdegraphics automatically builds poppler-tqt and I don't have to build that separately?

If a distro maintainer builds poppler with Qt3 support, will this new poppler-tqt conflict?

Do distro maintainers who want to package TDE need to know they don't have to rebuild poppler with Qt3 support?

I'm happy to learn I no longer have to rebuild poppler! I'm just asking questions to understand this new support. :)
