Thanks again Adam. I have successfully updated WebKit. While building
WebKit (running "build-webkit" script), I encountered the following error:

*$ perl build-webkit*
*Installing WebKitSupportLibrary...*
*The WebKitSupportLibrary has been sucessfully installed in*
* /home/amang/webkit/WebKitLibraries/win*
*Building results into: /home/amang/webkit/WebKitBuild*
*WEBKITOUTPUTDIR is set to: C:\cygwin\home\amang\webkit\WebKitBuild*
*Cannot find registry entry
*Please download and install the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2*
*Platform SDK from <http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?*
*Then follow step 2 in the Windows section of the "Installing Developer*
*Tools" instructions at <http://www.webkit.org/building/tools.html>.*
*Died at /home/amang/webkit/Tools/Scripts/webkitdirs.pm line 1576.*

I am working on a computer with Windows 7 64 bit version installed. I have
also installed the Platform SDK, albeit a different version. I read
somewhere that WebKit has problems recognising Platform SDK on Win64
systems. Can you please help me out with this?
