Hi everybody.

Today we created an experimental branch from trunk which we plan to
use as the base for QtWebKit-2.2. We're declaring it our first TP
(technology preview).

As some of you may already know, QtWebKit-2.2 will be supported on all
Qt platforms and is planned for the end of this semester (in 2-3
months from now). It's a fresh branch from trunk, so it includes a lot
of new features and developments, accumulated for about a year since
the last releases were branched (2.0 and 2.1 were branched 15 and 11
months ago, respectively).

We want QtWebKit-2.2 to be our best release ever and to reach that
goal we need contributions and feedback from all the community.
Feedback on different platforms and build scenarios are particularly

Later this week we'll share more of the roadmap for QtWebKit-2.2. We
plan to have one more TP and a couple of betas before we declare it a
RC. To reach beta status, we need it building and passing basic tests
on all platforms.

The branch is on gitorious, as usual:
WARNING: I had to leave the office and let the git push running... It
should be up in one hour, hopefully ;-)

The SVN revision is 85508.

Information about the 2.2 release(s) will be in this wiki page:

Build and test instructions are also available, please check our main wiki:

Finally, please consider this branch experimental and have in mind
that we're branching to prepare our build/test environment, but this
branch may, later this week, move forward (as in git merge <some later
trunk revision>). It'll depend on the test results and what happens on
trunk. We'll let you know, naturally.

Happy hacking and testing. :-)
