Qt 5.15.2 is a bug-fix release. It maintains both forward and backward
compatibility (source and binary) with Qt 5.15.1.
For more details, refer to the online documentation included in this
distribution. The documentation is also available online:
The Qt version 5.15 series is binary compatible with the 5.14.x series.
Applications compiled for 5.14 will continue to run with 5.15.

* Library *
- QJsonObject:
* [QTBUG-86873] Fixed sorting in QJsonObject when parsing UTF-8 JSON text
so that searching works afterwards.
- QLocale:
* [QTBUG-74287] Fixed locale look-up when language is unspecified.

system timezone name is unrecognized.
- QMimeDatabase:
* [QTBUG-85436] Fixed handling of glob-deleteall in QMimeDatabase.
- QStringView:
* [QTBUG-86516] A couple of methods have been added to QStringView that make
it easier to write code that is portable between Qt 5.15 and Qt 6. Those
include QStringView::split(), QStringView::count(), number conversion
methods (QStringView::toInt() and friends). A couple of overloads taking
QStringView have been added to QRegularExpression (match() and
globalMatch()) and QString (append(), prepend(), insert() and

- QUrl:
* [QTBUG-86277] Changed QUrl::fromLocalFile() to accept Windows UNC paths
whose hostname component is not a valid Internet hostname. This makes QUrl
able to accept extended-length paths (\\?\), device namespace (\\.\),
WSL (\\wsl$), etc.

* [QTBUG-85123] QAuthenticator now tries to get credentials before using GSSAPI.
* [QTBUG-85902] If QNAM asks for HTTP/2 or 1.1 and the server doesn't list either,
we now try to connect using HTTP/1(.1) just in case, to keep compatibility.
* [QTBUG-86418] Huffman compression now handles QByteArray's elements as
unsigned char to avoid an HTTP/2 crash when using unicode in an http header.
- Image formats:
* [QTBUG-87320] Fixed a crash in QImage conversions still ongoing on shutdown.
* [QTBUG-86702] Fixed a gif read error.

- Input:
* [QTBUG-86207] We now ignore mouse events where globalPos contains NaN
to avoid a crash.
* [QTBUG-86253] Fixed a touch->mouse synthesis bug that caused widgets
to get stuck in pressed state.
- QPainter:
* [oss-fuzz-24615] Fixed a heap-buffer-overflow.
* [QTBUG-84267] Fixed a crash in QIcc::fromIccProfile.
- QScreen:
* [QTBUG-76902] QScreen now emits geometryChanged() when the logical DPI changes
so as to resize widgets and fonts after moving to a screen with different DPI.
- Text and fonts:
* [QTBUG-85016] Fixed a potential crash when rendering text with an empty font
* [QTBUG-87267] We now fall back to using the family when doing an exact match
so that QFont::exactMatch() returns true for installed fonts.
* [QTBUG-85560] Fixed rendering unicode characters using a fallback font.
* [oss-fuzz-24702] QTextDocument's HTML parser now avoids an integer overflow that
resulted in extreme values for font pixelsize.
- QCalendarWidget:
* [QTBUG-86307] The calendar widget now shows the year correctly after editing.
- QComboBox:
* [QTBUG-86580] QComboBox::currentText() now returns an empty string rather than
placeholderText if the text is empty.
- QGraphicsScene:
* [QTBUG-87174] Fixed a bug in the initialization of BSP trees to increase
the performance of QGraphicsScenes with non quadratic scene rectangles.
- QMenu:
* [QTBUG-77833] We now close popups on windowWillMiniaturize notification
so that context menus are not left visible when a window is minimized.
- QSpinBox:
* [QTBUG-86483] QSpinBox now avoids emitting valueChanged twice if the
application's handler takes longer than the press'n'hold timer.
- Dialogs:
* [QTBUG-87483] QFontDialog::selectedFont() is now correct at the time
the accepted signal is emitted.
* [QTBUG-10561] Fixed a reentrancy problem with processEvents() in
QProgressDialog::setValue() when using Qt::WindowModal with setValue()
connected to a signal in another thread using Qt::QueuedConnection.

fetchMore() if necessary.

and no longer lose items during drag-and-drop if a model only allows
MoveAction and doesn't override moveRows().
* [QTBUG-83313] Fixed CaseSensitivity handling for QRegularExpression in
- Styles:
* [QTBUG-86411] Fixed a bug in Fusion that was adding unnecessary padding to
a groupbox without a title or indicator.

if the PostgreSQL server restarts.
