New point version

Includes some security fixes for QtWebEngine, but that's the only component I checked so far.

If nobody else gets to this by the time I build it for gstreamer examples, I'll take it.

I gave this a try on a current system: builds with the current instructions, but falkon is unable to display anything from some sites, such as and : for me the latter is critical, I'm reverting to a backup.

This is just for QtWebEngine. There are very many HIGH vulnerabilities, with a few Medium and Low sprinkled in there too.

I'm going to add a comment to the book for this, but DESTDIR doesn't work for this package. You must use INSTALL_ROOT= instead

Ken, I'll try to get around to testing Falkon and/or Plasma by Tuesday or Wednesday.

I think I'm becoming senile - I documented this on the qtwebengine page in Configuring QtWebEngine. I've just updated to 5.12.4 on a different system, got the same problem, and eventually found a link to that page ;-)

Mind you, getting some sleep might also help.

comment:6 by ken@…, 4 years ago

Just in case anybody using 5.12 cares: if all you care about is vulnerabilities on an existing system, falkon is working with qtwebengine-5.12.4 (only) on top of qt-5.12.3 on my systems. So, just like most 5.11 and earlier changes - only webengine needs to be updated.

Obviously, doing that doesn't bring in whatever bugfixes are in qt itself, and I'm sure that BLFS will move to 5.13. But for my own builds I'll probably stick with 5.12 which is a long term support version.
