+
+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.
+
+
+Chromium Snapshot
+-----------------
+
+ - Updated the Chromium version to 56.0.2924.122.
+ - Changed the Chromium build-system to GN.

+****************************************************************************
+
+General
+-------
+
+ - Took Q_ENUM to use on QtWebEngineWidgets interfaces.
+ - [QTBUG-56677] Made printing to a PDF file emit the signal
+ pdfPrintingFinished() in both QQuickWebEngineView and QWebEnginePage.
+ - Added a setting to again allow insecure origins to request geolocation.
+
+
+DownloadItem
+------------
+
+ - [QTBUG-58155] Fixed that (QWebEngine)DownloadItem::path() incorrectly
+ returned percentage-encoded filenames when the suggested path was based
+ on a URL. Percentage-decoding the path is generally not only incorrect
+ when the path is not based on URL, but also dangerous as it can lead to
+ downloads that escape the download folder.
+ - [QTBUG-56839] Added a downloadInterruptReason property for interrupted
+ downloads to download items.
+
+
+Qt WebEngineWidgets
+-------------------
+
+ - [QTBUG-53314, QTBUG-53372] Added the QWebEngineHttpRequest class for
+ sending HTTP requests over the network using HTTP POST or with custom
+ HTTP headers.
+
+ - [QTBUG-58673] QWebEnginePage: Started calling the javaScriptConfirm
+ method also for unload dialogs (onbeforeunload handlers).
