Security Fixes

Qt WebEngine in Qt 5.5.1 includes a couple of security fixes for known vulnerabilities.

Although we skip the Qt WebEngine, I include this release in the Security category, just in case somebody uses it.

Today we have released Qt 5.5.1, the first update to Qt 5.5. In addition
to improvements and fixes to Qt functionality, it also packs in new Qt
Creator 3.5.1.

Qt 5.5.0 released in July introduced many new features and refinements
to existing functionality, and the Qt 5.5.1 patch release provides close
to 1.000 improvements and fixes on top of it. One of the key drivers for
Qt 5.5 has been quality and maturity and we have continued to address
items reported by the Qt users with Qt 5.5.1. I am really happy about
all the feedback and especially all the contributions we have received.

Qt WebEngine in Qt 5.5.1 includes a couple of security fixes for known
vulnerabilities. The list of important changes in Qt 5.5.1 can be found
from the change logs. Note that only the most important items are listed
in the change logs, for full list of changes it is best to check the git

The Qt 5.5.1 packages also include new Qt Creator 3.5.1. See Qt Creator
3.5.1 change log for the main improvements.

The Qt for Device Creation embedded Linux stack has been updated to use
Qt 5.5.1. Support for a new reference device: Kontron SMARC-sAMX6i has
also been added. Furthermore, Qt Virtual Keyboard version 1.3.1 is also
released today, as well as a technology preview of Qt Virtual Keyboard

If you are using the online installer, Qt 5.5.1 and Creator 3.5.1 can be
updated using the maintenance tool. Offline packages are available for
commercial users in the Qt Account portal and at for
open-source and commercial evaluation users.
