WebKitGTK+: current status and roadmap

Presented by Mr. Mario SANCHEZ PRADA on 26 Jul 2012 from 15:30 to 16:10


In this talk we will discuss about WebKitGTK+[1], the port of the WebKit web rendering engine[2] to the GNOME platform, based on technologies such as GObject, GTK+, libsoup, cairo, gstreamer and ATK, among others. A lot of things have happened since the last Desktop Summit, so we will try to focus on the most notorious ones, such as its integration with GNOME and GTK+3, increased support of the HTML5 standard and several improvements on the multimedia, rendering and accessibility layers. We will also cover the integration with WebKit2[3] and its split-process model, as well as the design of the new API being developed for WebKit2GTK+, which we expect to be ready for the next stable version of the port. Once it's stable, it will allow to port nearly any application already using WebKitGTK+, such as Yelp or Epiphany, to the new multi-process architecture. Last, we will prepare some nice demos to show you in a better way what WebKitGTK+ is already capable of, which kind of awesomeness it can bring to your application and how easy it is to embed and use. The talk should be interesting for embedders and for those considering integrating web technologies in their products in some other ways (e.g. HTML5-based user interfaces). [1] [2] [3]
