Hello everybody!

The QtWebKit team is proud to announce the final release of QtWebKit-2.2.0!

QtWebKit-2.2 was branched off trunk on May and kept under
stabilization since then. In total, 399 commits have been added to the
stabilization branch, most of them fixing regressions, crashes and
security issues.

The WebKit project moves really fast and it's hard to highlight one
specific feature of QtWebKit-2.2.0. In comparison to QtWebKit-2.0 (the
version included in Qt-4.7, more than one year old), there are tons of
improvements, including plenty of support for new standards and many
bugfixes. We have a partial list of highlighted features in our public
wiki: http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/QtWebKitFeatures22. Technical
details, including the full list of bugs fixed, known issues and build
instructions are also available:

QtWebKit-2.2.0 is already integrated into the Qt repository and it'll
be present in Qt-4.8. The full source code can be retrieved from the
git repository or downloaded a tarball from

We wish to thank everybody involved in testing, bug reporting,
monitoring the build-bots and backporting or implementing fixes.

QtWebKit is a very exciting and fast paced project and there are a lot
of challenges ahead of us, such as bringing to Qt5 the new WebKit2
architecture and providing new QML APIs. The development is done in
the open and there are plenty of opportunities for contributions from
the community, which are, as always, very welcome. Please check our
wiki for more details.

Thanks and happy coding!
