+Qt 5.4 introduces many new features and improvements as well as bugfixes
+over the 5.3.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-5.4
+
+The Qt version 5.4 series is binary compatible with the 5.3.x series.
+Applications compiled for 5.3 will continue to run with 5.4.
+
+Some of the changes listed in this file include issue tracking numbers
+corresponding to tasks in the Qt Bug Tracker:

+
+****************************************************************************
+* Important Behavior Changes *
+****************************************************************************
+
+ - Using QAudioOutput and QSoundEffect with the PulseAudio backend won't
+ cause the system volume to be automatically changed to the maximum value
+ anymore. Audio streams will now respect the system-wide volume unless
+ explicitly set with setVolume().
+ - On Linux, both Alsa and PulseAudio backends are now present. PulseAudio
+ is used by default if available on the system and if the server is
+ running, otherwise Alsa is used instead.
+
+****************************************************************************
+* Library *
+****************************************************************************
+
+QtMultimedia
+------------
+
+ - Added new QAbstractPlanarVideoBuffer class.
+
+ - Camera (QML):
+ * Added deviceId, displayName, position, orientation, metadata,
+ viewfinder.resolution, viewfinder.minimumFrameRate and
+ viewfinder.maximumFrameRate properties.
+ * Camera device can be selected by setting the deviceId or position
+ properties.
+ *
+
+ - QtMultimedia global QML object:
+ * Added defaultCamera and availableCameras properties.
+
+ - QAbstractVideoBuffer:
+ * Added mapPlanes() function.
+
+ - QVideoFrame:
+ * Added support for planar video formats. New planeCount(),
+ bytesPerLine(int plane) and bits(int plane) functions.
+
+ - [QTBUG-40515] Improved PLS parser. It is now more permissive, allowing
+ to load virtually any kind of PLS file. It also correctly resolve
+ relative paths.
+
+****************************************************************************
