            Bug ID: 228250
           Summary: [GTK] Set
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKitGTK
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
          Reporter: mcatanzaro at gnome.org
                CC: bugs-noreply at webkitgtk.org

I think it would be nice to try to align our API version with the GTK version, to reduce confusion in the future. It's not possible currently because our GTK 3 APIs are webkit2gtk-4.0 and webkit2gtk-4.1, but it *will* be possible in a future GTK 5 API *if* we don't bump our API version to webkit2gtk-5.0 now. Instead, I'd propose calling the GTK 4 API webkit2gtk-4.5, halfway between 4.0 and 5.0. Then we can call the future GTK 5 API webkit2gtk-5.0.

We may also want to drop the legacy 2 from the API version, i.e. webkit2gtk-4.5 -> webkitgtk-4.5, to simplify things more. Or we could decide to keep it forever.
