Hi all,

'5.4.0' is now frozen and the final downmerge from '5.4' will happen in the next hours (with whatever is in the branch at that point).

There will be no cherry-picks from '5.4' to '5.4.0', all changes targeted to Qt5.4.0 release needs to be pushed to the '5.4.0' branch from now on.

Now, no any nice to have's in '5.4.0' anymore ;)
