+****************************************************************************
+* Qt Wayland QPA Plugin *
+****************************************************************************
+

+
+- Filter key events through the input method
+
+- Remove the qt_sub_surface extension
+
+- Update xdg-shell version to v5
+
+- Use default size if a QWindow has no geometry
+
+- Set appId according to QGuiApplication::desktopFileName()
+

+- Create shell surface also for windows with BypassWindowManagerHint to avoid
+ the application freezing. (To enable the old behavior, set the environment
+ variable QT_WAYLAND_USE_BYPASSWINDOWMANAGERHINT.)

+
+****************************************************************************
+* Qt Compositor API Tech Preview *
+****************************************************************************
+
+The previously unsupported QtCompositor module has been extensively reworked
+and renamed to QtWaylandCompositor. It is released as a tech preview in
+Qt 5.7. This means that it is not source or binary compatible with QtCompositor
+in 5.6, and it will not be source or binary compatible with Qt 5.8.
+
+- QtWaylandCompositor libraries, plugins and examples are now built by default.
+
+- New and improved C++ API
+
+- Completely rewritten QML API, making it possible to write compositors in just
+ a few lines of pure QML.
+
+- Note: this is a tech preview, and subject to change.
