Release notes for 0.4.8
As they say, the exception proves the rule. Consequently Midori 0.4.8
fermented a little longer than most releases. The number of bug fixes is
too plenty to make for a good read: let it be said that bugs in 0.4.7
with opening Midori in different modes, GLib-related build errors and
forever delayed pages are gone - now on to the new features.

Autocompletion includes open tabs now, is generally more responsive and
open to more extensions in the near future. Speaking of extensions,
Netscape plugins can be individually enabled and disabled seemlessly.

Icon loading received a major refactoring, bookmarks and search engines
mostly wave goodbye to the well-known "default icon".
Support for Granite 0.2 was improved big time. As a treat,
autocompletion features a side-by-side layout.
To round things up, inline search highlights all matches by default to
increase readability and the urlbar tries harder to keep selected text
working as expected.

Spoiler alert: The Win32 version will support FlashGet. Updated builds
are still in the making. Incidentally if you missed it, on Linux wget,
SteadyFlow or any other command line-accessible external download
manager can be used.
