this version of Midori has a focus on optimizations below the hood. The
most important point here is that from now on, you need at least
WebKitGTK+ 1.1.1, Glib 2.10 and libsoup 2.25.2. Lots of tricks to
maintain compatibility were dropped. Supporting ancient versions of
WebKit became increasingly hard, and various optimizations are in place
already. The internal source view was also dropped, and the default text
editor is used, or whatever you chose in the preferences. As for a
really exciting feature, downloading of files works if you have
WebKitGTK+ 1.1.3, including a sidepanel and progress bars inside the
statusbar. As a goodie I added an extension called Colourful Tabs, which
took me less than two hours to write and is quite nice for that.
