This is a bug fix release in the stable 2.4 series.

IMPORTANT: This release disables SSLv3 for the POODLE vulnerability only
in WebKit2, but not in WebKit1 because it's not possible to do it
reliably. Applications using WebKit1 should disable SSLv3 themselves.
For more details see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=738633

What's new in the WebKitGTK+ 2.4.7 release?

  - SSLv3 is now disabled in WebKit2 to protect us against POODLE vulnerability.
  - Fix the remote web inspector.
  - Fix rendering of buttons, selections and lists with recent GTK+
  - Fix the build with drag and drop support disabled.
  - Fix the build with video support disabled.
  - Fix a crash in the plugin process with some windowed flash plugins.
  - TLS errors now take precedence over the HTTP authentication dialog.
  - Do not shrink on-disk cache to its default size on startup.
  - Don't include full path names in WebKitEnumTypes.h to ensure the
    generated headers are always identical.
