> Hi all,
> I've just merged WebKit 2 changes into qtwebkit-stable. From this moment it's enabled by default on all systems except macOS and Windows. This means that you can use QML API on these systems, but there are a few known problems:
> * WebView is not flickable by default, until this bug is fixed: https://github.com/annulen/webkit/issues/472
> * Fullscreen doesn't work
> * Authentication doesn't work
> * Custom URL schemes don't work, and there might be slight API changes. Note that qrc:// scheme is fully suported
> * NPAPI plugins are loaded, but don't display anything
> * WebGL doesn't work and breaks things https://github.com/annulen/webkit/issues/525
> If you don't need QML API, you can build QtWebKit with -DENABLE_WEBKIT2=OFF cmake option.
> The opposite feature, i.e. building only WebKit 2, is not yet supported, please reply if you what to have this feature

Update: macOS support is available too now. Please contact me if you want to get binaries, compatible with Qt 5.8.0.
