Cheat Sheets

Liferea 1.12 now with Webkit2

What's different in Webkit2?

The most important change is Webkit being multi-process. For applications using Webkit this means they have to talk to the background process to scroll, copy text, get context menues and other stuff. The Webkit2 way to do the talking is to write a Webkit extension that is loaded when the background process starts which allows us to send DBUS commands. As for performance it seems faster. But you might want to try yourself!

Distro Support

To compile with Webkit2 you need at least the following Linux distribution versions

No Travis CI anymore

Due to the Ubuntu 16.04 not yet supported by Travis I had to disable the test builds as the fail installing the Webkit2 package :-(
