WebKitGTK 2.25.1 released!
A new development release of the WebKit GTK port used by the popular light-weight web browser Midori for Linux and Android is now available. Sub-process sandboxing and better handling of dark GTK themes are among this milestone towards a stable 2.26-series.
WebKitGTK is, as the name implies, a port of the very commonly used WebKit rendering engine to GTK. You can use this free software to make your application show some HTML or use it to build a complete fully functional browser.
The changes since the last release are:
- Add support for subprocess sandboxing.
- Add API to get the web process unique identifier of a WebKitFrame.
- Add WebKitWebPage::did-associate-form-controls-for-frame signal and deprecate did-associate-form-controls.
- Implement AtkComponentIface scroll_to methods.
- Improve rendering of form controls when GTK theme is dark and enable prefers-color-scheme media query.
- Show the emoji chooser popover for editable content.
- Fix touch capabilities detection for websites checking touch events properties present in window or pointer media queries.
- Fix several crashes and rendering issues.
You can try the Midori web browser to see what WebKitGTK can do.
