Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

The current version of libqt5pas is 1.2.9, or, perhaps, I should say the
current version of libqt5pas1 is 2.9 ?

>From time to time the Lazarus Developers alter the source code of this package
to support additional features. In this case a set a accessibility features
have been added. Unlike previous such changes however, a Lazarus application
(compiled with trunk or, perhaps next Lazarus release) must use the new
library, even if the new features are avoided.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

I have tested the new library with older versions of Lazarus and they work

   * What was the outcome of this action?

There seems no apparent reason why the new library should not replace all
instances of the old one.  This will make the transition to the new model a
great deal easier, especially for end users of Lazarus applications.
