I have some issues with QtWebKit (and last time I checked, I needed last version, but maybe it's worse now, and QtWebEngine is mandatory?)... I'll retry to build it latter.

Hi all,

@ptitSeb : thanks for having a look at it :)

Official news is out now:

1.0.01 release (01-01-2019)

First stable version has been released!

Not all planned features were finished in time, but hopefully at least some of them will make it into 1.1 later this year.

Most important changes since RC 12:

• some enhancements in experimental backend for QtWebEngine (Blink):

○ download dialog is now shown for tab that initiated it;
○ added support for handling requests to print page;
• many other fixes.

Known issues:

• new browsing history backend does not store favicons yet.

Looks like it's only necessary if you decide to enable the experimental QtWebEngine backend.

On a side note, QtWebKit seems to be deprecated, in favor of QtWebEngine. There's a project aiming at reviving it though:

https://github.com/annulen/webkit

It also fits our use case quite well IMHO ;)
