Hello, Konstantin Tokarev.
Thanks a lot for your work.
Your work is very need for us.
Can we wait new release in 2018 year ?
If no, then please tell us some plans for QtWebKit with your participation.

I need to build new PC, and then will start working on new version. In the meanwhile, @mnutt is investigating porting to WebKit trunk

Do you mean QtWebKit trunk or WebKit trunk ?

Where can I download sources of QtWebKit freshest version for compiling for Qt 5.11.1 (VS 2015/2017) ?

Do you also plan to merge the latest upstream WebKit in the new version? I observed many issue in the current version and I could figure out if they are coming from upstream webkit or the qt specific code. Some of these issues were not visible in the old qtwebkit. The regressions shade the benefits of having latest webkit features.

@annulen, do you have plans to add support for Qt5 MinGW 64 bit?

Is there any early test version for the updated version like a repository or a candidate snapshot?
Is still mnutt trying to get it on the webkit trunk or the idea was already abandoned?
I am very curious if the updated webkit would fix some of the issues I observed.
Thanks.

I’m still working on it. It’s not almost done but I hope to have something working in the next month or two.

Should we still expect any updated version soon?

In 5.212.0 alpha 2 I found some JS JIT and DFG crashes that I assume might come from upstream webkit for Windows. I understood the upstream webkit is changing very quickly and quite deeply and keeping up with the changes takes a lot of work and good understanding of webkit code, so only a few people is able to update qtwebkit. You were one of them and you did a great work. However, debugging the JS JIT for example code is far beyond my capabilities, otherwise I would be happy to contribute to this project.

I think it would be good to know if you still have some long term plan to continue this work or it will be abandoned in favor of other web engines. Do you intend to continue to support and eventually patch 5.212.0 base or you intend to move to a newer upstream webkit version? Is it possible to upgrade only the JavaScript if upgrading the entire WebKit is too difficult? Thanks.

Plan is to update to new webklit version, patching old one is not practical

Thanks. Do you have any release date estimation for an updated version?

mnutt#1

This won't actually get merged into official webkit upstream right ? The plan is just to merge the current code into a snapshot of the webkit code and tag a new qt-webkit release right ?

I wish I can help but this is out of my reach at the momment in terms of competence. I'm posting this so I sorten out my questions and since your work wasn't referenced in this thread already ( maybe someone else can help )

Sorry this has fallen behind where I had hoped, I've been out of town for a bit and busy with other things.

I don't foresee qtwebkit getting merged to official webkit upstream.

@ajankov Well, it's not like you're contributing much 😉 People are (as far as I can tell) doing this in their free time, and often, people have a live besides working on open source, too.
