The change log won't update much as long as its TP.

The main reason for remaining TP is to keep the option of adjusting the API open towards Qt 5.8. If 5.7 would have been final then 5.8 could not make incompatible API changes either anymore. This was necessary since the time difference between the first 5.6 release and the first 5.7 release was too short for review and feedback collection. There are some incompatible public header differences between Qt 5.6 and 5.7 already and Qt 5.8 has some as well.
