When it was decided Qt 5.3 would be a stability and bug-fix release on a 
faster schedule it meant new big modules like Qt3d and QtWebEngine couldn't 
make it.

QtWebEngine already has a technical preview, and hopefully a beta will appear 
in a month not too far away, maybe even around the same time as Qt 5.3, but 
not packaged together with 5.3 because it is not ready for that.

Best regards
