Short slightly OT question:

My understanding was, that Qt 5.0 will not ship with the WebKit2 API yet?

Sadly I can't find the blog or email, but I think it was Lars Knoll who said 
that WebKit2 will only be integrated in a Qt 5.x release?

So: Is Qt 5.0 really going to ship with a first release of a QML WebKit2 API? 
Considering that neigher examples or documentation public yet, I doubt that.

Bye, thanks for the clarification.
