[kde-unstable] Qt 5.12 beta

As Qt 5.12 beta is now available in kde-unstable, I wonder if this works well for others. I've upgraded 2 machines, one with a Intel and one with a AMD GPU, and the experience on Plasma Wayland is quite bad so far. A lot of things are regressed, not sure if this is related to missing rebuilds or if these are new bugs. Plasma 5.13 and now Plasma 5.14 are crashing quite easy, sometimes it is enough to move the mouse over the close button of a window. At least with GDM instead of SDDM I can open a new session instead of needing to restart the system. The kicker menu is positioned incorrectly, several pop-ups appear now on the left top and the fullscreen application dashboard shows only favorites but no applications anymore, ... At this stage it is quite the worst experience on Plasma Wayland since a long time. I think I will go back to Qt 5.11 and avoid any bug reporting as I wouldn't know where to start.

That's indeed a missing kwin rebuild, done now.

The kicker menu is positioned incorrectly, several pop-ups appear now on the left top

Should be fixed in beta2

and the fullscreen application dashboard shows only favorites but no applications anymore

I've tested this again with Qt 5.12 Beta 3 and it looks almost normal now, only restarting and shutting down the system behaves quite strange and slow. Anyway I can use Plasma 5.14.2 without any crash now.
