+Qt 5.5 introduces many new features and improvements as well as bugfixes
+over the 5.4.x series. For more details, refer to the online documentation
+included in this distribution. The documentation is also available online:
+
+ http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5
+
+The Qt version 5.5 series is binary compatible with the 5.4.x series.
+Applications compiled for 5.4 will continue to run with 5.5.
+
+Some of the changes listed in this file include issue tracking numbers
+corresponding to tasks in the Qt Bug Tracker:

+
+****************************************************************************
+* Important Behavior Changes *
+****************************************************************************
+
+QtQml
+-----
+
+ * [QTBUG-44934] Assigning a char to a string will now create a string
+ with the actual character instead of a string representation of the
+ character's code-point. A side effect of this change is that a
+ one-character string also can be assigned to a character type.
+
+QtQuick
+-------
+
+ * Flickable.DragAndOvershootBounds value changed from 2 to 3. This will
+ only affect you if you've worked around enum type checking and have
+ the integer value explicitly in your code.
+
+
+****************************************************************************
+* Library *
+****************************************************************************
+
+
+Android
+-------
+
+ - [QTBUG-43515] Fixed a vertex shader compilation issue on certain OpenGL
+ drivers.
+
+QtQml
+-----
+
+ - [QTBUG-29769] Custom C++ value types annotated with Q_GADGET are now
+ fully accessible in the QML and QJSEngine JavaScript environment.
+
+ - Added qjsEngine(QObject*) getter similar to qmlEngine(object) that
+ allows retrieving the engine for an exposed object.
+
+ - Added Qt.hsva() function
+
+ - XMLHttpRequest:
+ * [QTBUG-35892] XMLHttpRequest now supports the OPTION method in
+ HTTP requests.
+ * QQmlXMLHttpRequest now supports "arraybuffer" binary response type.
+ * Support for synchronous requests
+
+QtQuick
+-------
+
+ - BorderImage: Add support for @2x HiDPI border images. This means, no more need to
+ multiply the border sizes by the device pixel ratio.
+
+ - [QTBUG-37946] Image: An autoTransform property has been added to control
+ whether metadata image transforms such as EXIF orientation are
+ automatically applied. By default it enabled for TIFF images and
+ disabled for JPEG.
+
+ - Changed to use the threaded render loop by default on Windows when
+ running with desktop OpenGL (opengl32.dll).
+ - [QTBUG-42813] QQuickRenderControl can now be used to render the Qt Quick
+ scene on a dedicated render thread, similarly to how the built-in
+ threaded render loop operates.
+ - Added Window.width and Window.height attached properties
+ - Added a Shortcut utility type for catching keyboard shortcuts
+
+ - Flickable:
+ * Introduced Flickable.OvershootBounds behavior that allows content
+ overshooting the boundary when flicked, but does not allow dragging
+ content beyond the boundary of Flickable.
+ * [QTBUG-22407] Flickable handles pixel deltas from trackpad gestures as
+ drags, for a more native feel
+
+ - PinchArea:
+ * Pinch gestures are recognized by the operating system on OSX
+ * Fix infinite recursion when TouchCancel events are received.
+
+ - TextInput:
+ * SetFocusOnTouchRelease is honored
+
+ - [QTBUG-44743] Text: Fixed assert when setting an invalid width or height on an
+ <img> tag in a text element.
+
+ - TextEdit:
+ * [QTBUG-44492] Fixed positioning of text decoration with some fonts.
+ * [QTBUG-45032] Fixed issues with using other vertical alignments than
+ AlignTop.
