General Improvements
--------------------

 - Better support for objects containing child objects in properties, methods
   and emitted signals. Such children now get wrapped on the fly as well and
   are accessible to JavaScript clients.

 - Improved separation between and support for multiple clients connected to
   a single WebChannel server.

New Examples
--------------------

 - qwclient:
   A REPL client for any qwebchannel service using a websocket transport.

Documentation
--------------------

 - Reworded documentation to better explain the interaction with Qt WebEngine
   and plain JavaScript clients using WebSockets.
