there seem to be an API change in the generated DOM bindings:

webkit_dom_html_element_set_class_name() is now called 

This breaks build of Evolution (while it worked in 1.9.5). Was it really 
intended to change existing API or is it a bug? I realize this is a 
development release, but I believe there should be some guarantees of source 
compatibility between stable releases (1.8 - 1.10).
