On behalf of the WebKitGTK+ team I am pleased to announce WebKitGTK+

What's new in WebKitGTK+ 1.3.13?

In this release the GObject DOM Bindings contain a major change. Explicit
invocation of DOM objects' addEventListener methods has replaced the GObject
signal method of DOM event handling. For intance, where before a developer
would connect to the "click-event" signal, a developer must now call:
webkit_dom_event_target_add_event_listener. For a more illustrative example see:

- Added API to control the IconDatabase and the cache database APIs
- Added more API for controlling the application cache
- Added support for spin buttons on <input type=number> elements
- Many other bugfixes
