This is the first stable release in the 2.12 series.

Highlights of the WebKitGTK+ 2.12.0 release

  • Enable FTL by default in JavaScriptCore for x86_64.
  • Network process is now used unconditionally. The shared secondary process model is now the same as using the multiple process model and setting a process limit of 1.
  • Switch to use overlay scrollbars like all other GTK+ widgets and ensure the behavior is consistent with GTK+ too.
  • Support for windowless NPAPI plugins with no UI in non X11 platforms.
  • Enable GSS-Negotiate support when available in libsoup.
  • Improved general performance by better handling glib main loop sources.
