I wanted round this discussion up by stating the outcome of last week (Tuukka's link was based in previous time span, aka 5.11.2):


There might be some bugs in the list which were fixed by people from outside of Qt RnD but I can count over 100 bugs being squashed and the set includes 15 widget related bugs. 

There are a few fixes still sitting on codereview which have not merged yet and hence are not resolved yet.
