+****************************************************************************
+* Qt Wayland QPA Plugin *
+****************************************************************************
+
+- Fix show/hide: destroy the Wayland surface instead of attaching a
+ null buffer. This fixes an xdg-shell protocol error, close animations,
+ and problems with hide on some EGL drivers.
+
+- Fix crash when trying to run on a compositor without outputs
+
+- Fix bug that updated the Wayland cursor on every mouse move
+
+- XDG shell: popup fixes
+
+- Fix geometry when FramelessWindowHint is changed
+
+- Allow running without any shell extension
+
+- Multiple stability improvements
+
+
+****************************************************************************
+* Qt Wayland Compositor API *
+****************************************************************************
+
+QtWaylandCompositor is now officially released. It is not source or binary
+compatible with the tech preview released with Qt 5.7. From now on the
+normal Qt compatibility guarantees apply, so QtWaylandCompositor 5.8 will
+be source and binary compatible with Qt 5.9.
+

+
+- General API renaming
+ * Rename isShm -> isSharedMemory
+ and BufferType_Shm -> BufferType_SharedMemory
+ * Rename inputDevice -> seat
+ * Rename throttlingView -> primaryView
+ * Rename isMapped -> hasContent
+ * Rename bufferLock -> bufferLocked
+ * Rename discardFrontBuffers -> allowDiscardFrontBuffer
+ * Rename QWaylandView::attach() -> bufferCommitted()
+ * Rename XdgShell -> XdgShellV5

+ - shellSurfaceCreated -> wlShellSurfaceCreated
+
+- Major QML API Changes
+ * View is removed from the Qt Quick API (use WaylandItem instead)
+ * Changing keymap from QML is now supported
+ * QWaylandDrag is now available to QML as WaylandDrag
+

+ * New texture/buffer handling: bindToTexture() is replaced by
+ toOpenGLTexture() which returns a QOpenGLTexture.
+ * New and improved keymap support
+ * New and improved mode support (monitor size/refresh rate)
+ * Remove touch focus, allowing touch input to multiple clients
+ at the same time
+ * Add common QWaylandShell base class
+

+ * Touch events are now enabled by default for Qt Quick compositors
