I opened a public git repository for WebKit BREW MP port. Third party
libraries are available in ThirdPartyLibraries directory. You can get the
source code from the following location with git-clone:


The port is complete, but minimal. It contains a very simple WebKit API
which needs to be rewritten in accordance with BREW API style.

I removed the launcher for BREW 4.x due to a legal issue. Sooner or later, I
will add a simple BREWLauncher which runs in BREW MP simulator.

Port details:

- The port can be compiled with BREW MP 1.0 SDK.

- The port is initially ported to BREW 4.0.4 so the code still uses
name. Any suggestion?

- ResourceHandle is implemented with BREW's native HTTP backend, IWeb.

- skia is used for graphics backend and freetype is used for font rendering
within skia.
