## What's new in Cog 0.11.1?

- core: Changed platform plug-ins to be able to automatically detect which
  one should be used. Passing the "--platform=" command line option to the
  launcher is now optional.
- core: Added support for building against libsoup3.
- core: Added CogHostRoutesHandler, which can route URI scheme requests
  with different host parts to other handlers.
- core, cog: Added support for running in WebDriver automation mode.
- cog: New "--enable-sandbox" command line option, which allows isolating
  rendering processes from the rest of the system.
- cog: New "--content-filter=" command line option, which allows loading
  a content blocker (WebKitUserContentFilter) JSON rule set.
- drm: Implemented handling of pointer axis/wheel/finger/continuous events
  and absolute motion events.
- wl: Renamed "fdo" platform module to "wl" (Wayland) as it better reflects
  its usage; the old name still works e.g. when using "cog --platform=fdo"
  but it is considered deprecated and will cause a warning.
- wl, gtk4: Added support for fullscreening web views.
- gtk4: Honor the CogShell.device-scale-factor property.

## What is Cog?

Cog is a suite of utilities for the WPE WebKit port, including a reusable
library (libcogcore), a launcher (named "cog" as well) suitable to be
used as a Web application container and a reusable library, and a tool
to control the launcher remotely (cogctl) using D-Bus.
