Hello packagers,

tarballs are available at the usual place under 

Please report any issues, official release is planned for next Thursday.

REVISIONS_AND_HASHES can be found at https://phabricator.kde.org/P680
and a preliminary changelog since 21.03.90 at 

The tars are signed with my public 

*** IMPORTANT Note: ***
There is one additional bit of information for that release, especially if 
you ship glibc 2.33. QtWebEngine built against that version fails to render 
content properly due to problems with a new syscall and the sandbox. This 
affects Akregator, KMail and Kontact for example. Unfortunately there 
doesn't seem to be a bug report at https://bugreports.qt.io yet, but 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1904652 (for example) links to 
patches (which most distros seem to carry already).

Thanks for packaging,
