Within the last two weeks I worked on packaging the new QtWebKit and testing it with several browsers and KDE components to ensure that we do not break the world. So far it looks like new QtWebKit is what it is promised to be: a drop-in replacement for the old one, even without the need to recompile anything. For now our plan to get it in Fedora:
- Provide a copr for wider testing, already done, checkout https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/lupinix/qtwebkit-annulen/
- Import into Rawhide (done)
- Update all qt5-qtwebkit packages for Fedora 24+ when some more testing is done, current plan is a 0day update for Fedora 26 (we will not get it in before final freeze) and updates for Fedora 24 and 25 at the same time
Note that I'm talking about the Qt5 version of QtWebKit. There is no upstream support for Qt4 anymore, but it is still in Fedoras repositories. So Qt4 QtWebKit is still without any fixes, I guess we should retire it at some point, in the same way our WebKitGTK+ friends already did.
