PyQt4 snapshots are now available - see the bottom of the PyQt download page. 
I've also added a link to the ChangeLog on the PyQt sidebar to make it easier 
for people to monitor progress.

Note that these snapshots are useless at the moment - only the enums in the Qt 
namespace in the QtCore module have been wrapped. At the moment I'm just 
testing all the build system changes. I'll make announcements from time to 
time as they become more useful.

At the moment only X11/GPL is available.

You will need the current SIP snapshot installed - which then means that you 
need the current PyQt3 snapshot installed. However, this does mean that you 
can have PyQt3 and PyQt4 installed in the same Python installation with the 
same version of SIP.

Although the sip module is now independent of the version of Qt, the build 
system isn't (yet). This means you must build SIP for Qt3 before building 
PyQt3, and rebuild SIP for Qt4 before building PyQt4. Once things are built 
then you can use them both at the same time.
