This is a development release leading toward 2.12 series.

What's new in the WebKitGTK+ 2.11.90 release?

  - Switch to use overlay scrollbars like all other GTK+ widgets and ensure the behavior
    is consistent with GTK+ too.
  - Limit the number of tiles according to the visible area. This was causing a huge memory
    consumption with some websites.
  - Fix toggle buttons rendering with GTK+ 3.19.
  - Fix HTTP authentication dialog rendering when accelerated compositing mode is enabled.
  - Use G_TYPE_ERROR instead of G_TYPE_POINTER for GError parameters of signals.
  - Fix several memory leaks.
