People who use Qt don't upgrade as frequently as Qt releases are made. Anyone
who has a need for a feature that didn't exist a month ago in the bleeding
edge (when the last release was made) already knows what is in the out of band
release. They are most likely the one who asked for it.
Having a huge difference between 5.4.0 and 184.108.40.206 doesn't seem wise to me.
