heads-up if you are using the libsoup network backend (by default you

As of SVN r101917, committed 12 days ago, the webkit-gtk folks (who
maintain the libsoup network backend) have bumped the minimum required
libsoup version to If you don't know GNOME's conventions, this
means it is an unstable, development version that will later become
2.38.x when the next stable GNOME release comes out.

As webkit-gtk follows GNOME's release cycle, it is OK for them to depend
on development versions of GNOME libraries. For now, there is not much

many features which are not implemented for the curl backend), consider
installing the bleeding edge libsoup version locally and remember to use
it when using webkit-efl.
