           Summary: [GTK] Bump binary version for 2.6
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified

          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Gtk

WebKitGTK+ 2.6 will be the first stable release including only the WebKit2 API, so we need to make sure it's parallel installable with older versions including the WebKit1 API. After some discussion we reached the conclusion that bumping the binary version is the best approach, since we will force everybody to recompile anyway. In addition to breaking the ABI, we will take advantage to also make some minor API modifications, that hopefully will not affect most of our current users. I would like to make all the API changes for the first unstable release, so that we only update the soname once for the whole cycle and people will have more time to adapt to API changes (if needed), instead of changing the API on every unstable release. So, I'll make all bugs updating the API blockers of this one.
