Just as a follow up to this, you may have seen that Nokia has now launched the 
Qt Open Governance project at qt-project.org and if you look closely enough 
you will see I have been appointed maintainer of the QPrinter module.  
Basically it means I am now responsible for the ongoing maintenance of 
QPrinter in Qt 4.8, and have the final say on any new code going into QPrinter 
from Qt 5 onwards.  So if you have any issues with Qt printing, you know who 
to kick :-)

With regards to future plans not much has changed, my time is tied up with 
other stuff for Qt 5.0 so I'm starting with a bug triage for now, with new 
code to come in 5.1 or 5.2.
