Hi everybody.

After a long period of tests, the 2.1.0 version of QtWebKit has
finally been released. It's available via several ways:

    * Source code via gitorious (tag: qtwebkit-2.1.0)
    * As a source code tarball (via gitorious as of now);
    * Via the next Qt SDK (1.1);
    * As an update in the coming weeks or months for several Nokia
mobile phones.

QtWebKit-2.1 was branched from the WebKit trunk on July of 2010 and
includes several HTML5, CSS and JavaScript improvements when compared
to QtWebKit-2.0 (besides the usual bug fixes). For a detailed list of
changes, please check the QtWebKit-2.1 release notes. The project wiki
has build instructions and other useful resources as well.

Please note that the QtWebKit-2.1 series is considered "internal" and
is not officially supported on desktop platforms, even though it's
relatively stable and is being used by developers and testers for a
while, specially on Linux. Desktop users may prefer to wait for
QtWebKit-2.2, which is planned for the end of this semester (H1 2011)
and will be officially targeted at all platforms supported by Qt.
