Hi all,

QtWebKit Technology Preview 5 is out.

Highlights of these release are:

* WebGL, accelerated compositing and accelerated 2D canvas are supported now. Accelerated compositing is disabled by default for now, it is known to cause minor artifacts on some sites.

* MinGW compiler is now fully supported on Windows

This improves feature parity with previous releases of QtWebKit [1]. The only major remining thing is QML API (based on WebKit2) which is being worked on right now [2]

You can find more detailed release changelog and binary builds compatible with official Qt 5.8 SDK at


Big thanks to all contributors!
