WebKitGTK 2.38.6 released!

This is a bug fix release in the stable 2.38 series.

What’s new in the WebKitGTK 2.38.6 release?

  • Enable the Asynchronous Clipboard API to make certain pages work (e.g. GithHub started recently requiring it).
  • Support :has() CSS selectors in content filters.
  • Apply basic font properties as font variation settings.
  • The Bubblewrap sandbox no longer requires setting an application identifier via GApplication to operate correctly. Using GApplication is still recommended, but optional.
  • Improvements to the GStreamer multimedia playback, in particular around MSE, WebRTC, and seeking.
  • Fix the build with journald support enabled when using elogind instead of the systemd libraries.
  • Fix the build with Link-Time Optimization enabled (-flto=auto).
  • Fix context menus not working in the remote Web Inspector.
  • Fix usage of the remote Web Inspector over HTTP.
  • Fix debug logs not being emitted in release builds.
  • Fix several crashes and rendering issues.

Thanks to all the contributors who made possible this release.
