I'm still getting familiar with the code, but please let me know if there is anything I can do to help with cairo/curl work.-Paul

You correctly determined that the current build instructions are out of date. Yes, some updates are required.I have been planning to update the wiki page with enhanced directions on how to build. Please wait and I will update it over the next couple of days.Best,Dan

Should following the directions for building WebKit using Cairo and CURL work? I tried to build webkit yesterday with updated source code based on the wiki page directions and I have 39 errors.My company is evaluating using WebKit on Windows CE and as a first step I am trying to build webkit on Windows XP without any non-redistributable Apple libraries.Best regards,Paul

Hi Patrick,Glad to hear the positive feedback on Safari/WebKit performance on Windows. IMHO, this performance is due much more to the WebKit portion--much less to the Safari layer.Please note that if you would like to use WebKit on Windows, the mainstream version requires non-redistributable Apple libraries. This means you cannot use it in a commercial application.However, there is an effort underway to replace the Apple libraries with opensource alternatives. See http://trac.webkit.org/projects/webkit/wiki/BuildingCairoOnWindows. This should give you a solution that you can use with your commercial application.Best,Dan
