QT Version's and Changes
I have two questions. First, is there a webpage or file in the QT package that describes the changes from version to version? I have found the page that describe major upgrades such as 4.8 to 5.0, but what about changes that took place in 4.8.4 to 4.8.5? My second question is where have the older versions of 4.8 gone? I can find all versions of 4.7 and 5.0, but only the most recent release of 4.8 and 5.1.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You are right the pre-builds of Qt 4.8.0 up to 4.8.4 are missing.
You need to check on "JIRA":https://bugreports.qt-project.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa if there is already a bug report. If not, file one.
A list of changes is included at least with every source code archive. These archives are at the end of each version in the archives.
Apparently for Qt 5 the idea of a complete source archive has been abandoned and sub-modules are stored. I would assume that those are complete.
You may want to check also git. There should be at least the newer versions of the source code. This might be an easier place to get the list of changes.
Oh, forgot there is currently only the most recent release of Qt 5.1.0.
To add to koahnig, you can get the sources from 4.5.1 to 4.8.5 (and current) using git tags
Thank you koahnlg and SGalst! That's very helpful.
Or, with some URL manipulation, you can unearth the precompiled versions of all releases since Qt 4.0 (plus code for Qt 3 and earlier)
(Qt 4.8.0 to Qt 4.8.5 at http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/4.8/ )
now Qt 4.8.0 -> Qt 4.8.4 are under http://download.qt-project.org/archive/qt/

Thanks a lot and good to know.
All changelogs are available here: "link":https://qt.gitorious.org/qt/qt/trees/4.8/dist.
For Qt5, "the link is different":https://qt.gitorious.org/qt/qtbase/trees/stable/dist.
