[Development] First Qt 5.9.1 snapshot available

Hi Jani,

I've got two questions regarding the 5.9.1 release:

1. There have been no "changes file" templates provided so far. I guess 
this will lead to last-minute hectic if you want to release in June. It 
would be good to have such templates as soon as the release branch is 

2. For 5.8.0, I saw that binary compatibility files were added. Did I 
miss something or is this discontinued for 5.9.0? How do you assure BC 
during the 5.9 patch releases?

Best regards,

Qt 5.9.1 is released on June and 5.9.2 is targeted to be released on August so if there is still bad issues open in 5.9.1 there is time to fix those for soon coming Qt 5.9.2 (or even Qt 5.9.3 which should be out ~September...)
