Hi everybody.

We're approaching the release of QtWebKit-2.1 and now is a good time
(or maybe the last opportunity) to test it and provide feedback before
the release.

QtWebKit-2.1 has lots of enhancements, bugfixes and support for new
web standards. A work-in-progress list of high-level changes together
with a list of commits and bugs/tasks fixed since the fork from trunk
is up on the wiki: http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/QtWebKitFeatures21

We have a tight schedule and an RC should be available Real Soon
Now(TM), :-) so don't waste any time, fire up your build tools, run a
test on your environment and give us your feedback. We're particularly
interested in any kind of regressions since qtwebkit-2.0 (which was
released with Qt-4.7.0) or any major breakage. Feel free to share your
thoughts or problems on this mailing list and on the #qtwebkit IRC
channel @ freenode. Your feedback will be really appreciated.

Unfortunately we couldn't provide pre-compiled binaries or packages at
this time (we'll do better in future releases, I promisse) :-)

For reference, this week release is tagged as "qtwebkit-2.1-week46"
