Hey Alexis and Ademar,
It'd be great to have test suites and assets available for the community so people can test QtWebKit on their platforms and environments.
For QtWebKit 2.1, I think we need to be clear that it is _not_ an official product release from Qt, similarly to Qt 4.7 or Qt SDK releases are, with packages and support available, created through a high-profile technology preview-beta-RC process etc. It's an intermediate QtWebKit version, and the next officially supported QtWebKit release will be the release that we bundle with Qt 4.8.
We also need to be clear that we have mainly tested QtWebKit 2.1 on Symbian and Maemo.
