+****************************************************************************
+* General *
+****************************************************************************
+
+ - Important Changes:
+ * The enum value ResourceTypeUnknown has changed value because there was
+ a mismatch between 5.6 and 5.7+ definitions. In general any unknown
+ ResourceType value should be handled as unknown for forward
+ compatibility, because more types are and can be added in later
+ Qt versions.
+
+ - Chromium Snapshot:
+ * The Chromium version has been updated to 53.0.2785.148.
+
+ - General:
+ * Spellchecking support has been introduced.
+ * Build time options can now be controlled via arguments to the global
+ configure script or app.
+ * [QTBUG-52999] Added focusOnNavigationEnabled setting which allows
+ controlling whether a web view will receive focus on a navigation
+ request. Previously the view always received the focus.
+ * [QTBUG-54902] Added setting to allow secure content to run insecure
+ content.
+ * [QTBUG-54918] Printing will now include the CSS background of the
+ printed elements by default. This restores the default behavior from Qt
+ WebKit. It can be controlled via the PrintElementBackgrounds web
+ setting.
+ * Some chrome:// URLs are now supported. For instance chrome://gpu.
+ * [QTBUG-53042] Pepper Flash glyph draw is now supported.
+ * A DownloadType has been added to download items.
+ * Greasemonkey attributes are now supported in user scripts.
+ * [QTBUG-55766] Added support for colored underline and background
+ to InputMethodEvent.
+ * Qt no-opengl builds are now supported.
+
+
+****************************************************************************
+* Qt WebEngine[QML] *
+****************************************************************************
+
+ - General:
+ * [QTBUG-53467][QTBUG-51177] Qt WebEngine (QML) now optionally uses Qt
+ Quick 2 Controls to show standard dialogs.
+ * [QTBUG-51190] Added ability to provide custom dialogs for HTTP and
+ proxy authentication, JavaScript alerts, file and color picking, and
+ form validation messages.
+ * [QTBUG-52554] Added ability to show custom context menu.
+

+
+ - Printing:
+ * Enables printing QWebPage content on a QPrinter. Currently does not
+ support previewing the document. Widgets only for the moment.
+
+ - QWebEnginePage:
+ * Introduced a new save method to save a page to a predefined location.
+
