+Getting PySide and Qt version
+*****************************
+
+PySide exports their version numbers among the version of Qt used to compile PySide in a pythonnic way, you can check it using the variables:
+
+::
+
+ import PySide
+
+ # Prints PySide version
+ # e.g. 1.0.2
+ print PySide.__version__
+
+ # Gets a tuple with each version component
+ # e.g. (1, 0, 2, 'final', 1)
+ print PySide.__version_info__
+
+ # Prints the Qt version used to compile PySide
+ # e.g. "4.7.2"
+ print PySide.QtCore.__version__
+
+ # Gets a tuple with each version components of Qt used to compile PySide
+ # e.g. (4, 7, 2)
+ print PySide.QtCore.__version_info__
+
+
+Note that the Qt version used to compile PySide may differ from the version used to run PySide, to get the current running Qt version you can do:
+
+::
+
+ print PySide.QtCore.qVersion()
