[webkit-gtk] Webkit GTK Release 2 - basically unusable for us

Not really. If you use release 2, as far as I can see, you can not get 
frames. Its available in release 1. This is to say if you include 
webkit2.h, my understanding is these functions are not available.


Javascript is good enough for simple tasks, but for complex tasks its 
not possible, especially if you need to get data on c side of the world. 
For many of my tasks, I need to fire XPath on document, execute some 
logic and then decide which element is worthy of attention. This becomes 
almost impossible in javascript, especially if you add complexity of 
frames and security that goes around it.

Pity, I can not use 2. But I can use release 1 with new code as it seems 
to be performing much better.
