  • [QTBUG-54650, QTBUG-59922] Accessibility is now disabled by default on Linux, like it is in Chrome, due to poor options for enabling it conditionally and its heavy performance impact. Set the environment variable QTWEBENGINE_ENABLE_LINUX_ACCESSIBILITY to enable it again.
  • [QTBUG-56531] Enabled filesystem: protocol handler.
  • [QTBUG-57720] Optimized incremental scene-graph rendering in particular for software rendering.

  • Many bug fixes, see https://code.qt.io/cgit/qt/qtwebengine.git/tree/dist/changes-5.9.0?h=5.9 for details.

In addition, this build includes a fix for https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-61521 , a binary incompatibility in QtWebEngine 5.9.0 compared to 5.8.0.
