QtQml
-----

 - Fixed the QML Connections element ignoring the initial state of the
   enabled property.

 - Fixed QML crashes on big endian systems.

 - Fixed memory leak in QQmlExpression.


 - Various performance and memory consumption improvements
    - Make sure the garbage collector returns completely free memory blocks
      to the operating system.
    - Reduce size of JavaScript objects
    - Optimize JS property storage to make better use of the available
      memory
    - Reduce the size of the generated byte code when using the bytecode
      interpreter
    - Reduce memory usage of the JIT by creating more compact code
    - Optimize code generation for JS expressions of type 'foo[bar]'

 - Applied workaround for miscompilation with gcc 5.

 - Fixed some cases where qml cache files would be ignored

 - Don't generate QML cache files ahead of time on Android, as it causes
   problems on some phones.


QtQuick
-------

 - QQuickItemView:
   * [QTBUG-48394][QTBUG-61294] Fixed a crash that could occur with bindings
     to contentItem.children or contentItem.childrenRect.

 - QQuickView:
   * Set the window's contentItem as the QObject-parent of the rootObject
     to ensure consistent behavior for calling findChildren() on
     QQuickWindow::contentItem and QQuickView::rootObject.

- QQuickWidget:
  * [QTBUG-60985] Fixed rendering in QMdiArea when using the software
    rendererer.
  * [QTBUG-60988] Fixed the delivery of shortcut override events.

 - QQuickWindow:
   * Set the window as the QObject-parent of the contentItem to ensure
     consistent behavior for calling findChildren() on QQuickWindow and
     QQuickWindow::contentItem.

QuickTest
---------

 - TestCase:
   * [QTBUG-61297] Fixed compare() for URL objects.
   * [QTBUG-32555] Made compare() print out dates' milliseconds to make it
     possible to see why a comparison of two dates fails when only their
     milliseconds differ.
