I expect we will be taking 5.2 for trusty, but currently this is held up due
to concerns about the qreal ABI change on armhf and its possible impact on
apps in the app store.

I'm in the process of analyzing the ABI changes for impact, and hope to be
able to share the results this week. We will need to take a decision soon
about how to handle the upgrade to 5.2; I'm hoping that the results of the
ABI investigation will make this decision an easy one.
