Hi all, I'm new to webkitgtk. I have been developing with it a bit for the
past few days and am flummoxed with a few questions that I'm hoping you
guys can clear.

First some information, I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit and I write
software using FPC 3.04 (Free Pascal), but have no problem understanding
and compiling C code.

1. What Gtk widget sets are supported by webkit2gtk versions? I normally
develop against Gtk2 libraries and want to know if it's supported by
I see packages like this that have both "webkit2gtk" and "gtk2" in their
name, which leads me to believe webkit2gtk has support for Gtk2.


2. When I search for packages that have the name libwebkit I see names like:


What are the differences between the packages in this list?

3. When browsing the latest documentation for webkit2gtk, I don't see an
API for of webkit_web_view_set_view_mode. But in this page it's defined:


But it this page it's not:


Where did this function go and are functions being removed in the same
major versions rather than being deprecated?

Thanks for all your work and I look forward to hearing from you!
