The packages in the QGIS repository need to be rebuilt with the new GDAL
version in testing & unstable. These rebuilds are required every time a
new GDAL upstream release is included in Debian.

The QGIS release repositories don't generally don't get rebuilt often,
so currently your best bet is to use the nightly builds which do pick up
dependency changes.

Unfortunately due to the lack of WebKit support in Python Qt4 all QGIS
features which rely on it are broken currently. This affects both the
upstream QGIS packages as those in Debian which have been rebuilt for
the GDAL transition. There was talk of a branch with changes to deal
with the removal of WebKit from Python Qt4, but these changes have not
found their way into 2.14 LTR yet (nor have the osgEarth 2.7 changes).
