This is the first stable release in the 0.12 series.

## Highlights of the 0.12.0 release

- 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.
- core, cog: Added support for running in WebDriver automation mode.
- 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: Removed `cog_platform_teardown()`, deinitilization of platform
  plug-in implementations is now done automatically as part of object
- 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.
- drm: Improved input event handling.

## 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.
