Normally it would have gone to jaunty-proposed/updates, but due to some 
disconnect between our Qt and KDE versions in Jaunty we have at least one 
regression that upstream will not support fixing.  We promise -updates will 
be regression free, so 4.2.4 is not suitable for that repository.

Since we intend to put 4.3.0 in jaunty-backports shortly, no one on the 
development team was excited about doing the work to get 4.2.4 into 
backports since it was already in the PPA.
