I’m late this week, sorry πŸ™‚

  • Diego continued implementing missing Qt DRT functionality (34418).
  • Andreas fixed the themeing code to always use the windows style on Maemo 5 (34376).
  • Noam added an FPS counter to QGVLauncher (34450).
  • Andreas fixed a bug with escaping HTML tags with JavaScript alerts/notifications (34429).
  • Noam continued optimizing QGraphicsLayerQt for smoother animations (34062).
  • Ossy fixed support for pixel tests in the Qt DRT (27813).
  • Jedrzej continued the QtScript implementation (34533).
  • Ariya improved painting performance by eliminating unnecessary calls to the QBrush constructor (34559).
  • Tor Arne used his mighty qmake skillz to generate convenience classname include header files during the build.
  • Kenneth implemented frame set flattening with nice layout test coverage (32717). That’s a feature that helps with small screen web browsing, where scrollbars from frames get into the way most of the time.
  • Kenneth also merged the QGraphicsView based QGVLauncher into WebKitTools/QtLauncher. You can run the launcher with “-graphicsbased” for it to use QGraphicsWebView.

P.S.: From the feedback I’m getting, I have the impression that some people find these summaries useful to get an idea of what’s going on in WebKit development. That’s my goal, improving visibility. If you have suggestions for a better location, i.e. me not using this web log to post a digest of a change log, please don’t hesitate to make suggestions :). If the majority of readers prefer these summaries via one of the existing mailing lists or a wiki page, then let me know.

please keep these coming via your blog! putting them somewhere else will end up just hiding them from most people and it is really useful and important to now the progress being made in QtWebkit. besides letting us know that it isn’t a dead project (quite the opposite) we can have more confidence in using it for products we will release later on, i’m also finding it very useful to jump from your blog into some of the bug tracker entries to see what improvements have been made.

i’m using and appreciating these updates quite a bit as a result. πŸ™‚ thanks!
