Important Changes
- - [QTBUG-60565] Fixed that Chromium was incorrectly exporting its own new
- and delete operators in Qt 5.8.0. However, applications that linked and
- used those versions of new or delete will not be able to load with 5.9,
- where they no longer exist. This primarily affects shared Linux builds,
- where exported Qt symbols were tagged with Qt_5.
+ - Configure options are now handled by the global configure script. This
+ means options previously controlled by WEBENGINE_CONFIG options should
+ now use configure flags. For instance the configure command-line option
+ -proprietary-codecs replaces WEBENGINE_CONFIG+=use_proprietary_codecs.
+ - [QTBUG-54650, QTBUG-59922] Accessibility is now disabled by default on
+ Linux, like it is in Chrome, due to poor options for enabling it
+ conditionally and its heavy performance impact. Set the environment
