I just finished pushing the current version of a new port of WebKit
based on the Clutter library. Being also based on GObject it shares a
lot of infrastructure with the GTK+ port - almost all of the public API
is shared, much of the WebCore<->WebKit glue code, GStreamer, Cairo and
Soup backends.

You can find it here:


I have discussed this new port with the other WebKitGTK+ people during
our hackfest, so they are aware of its existence for a bit now, though
the code was not yet available.

The work is being done on behalf of my employer Collabora. We are not
yet going to upstream it because at this point in time we are still
figuring out how long-term maintenance would work, and we are aware the
WebKit project doesn't like ports that end up requiring lots of work and
are then left bit-rotting in the tree (neither do we).

As soon as we can figure this out, we'll let you know. For now I'd like
to let anyone who might be interested in this work know it's publicly
available =). Let me know of any questions!
