Browser D-Bus Bridge 1.2

Friday, September 10th, 2010

Another bugfix release of BDB was more than overdue, finally got around to do it.

There is on sort of new feature included though, the build supports now building the WebKit flavor against (a modified) QtWebKit. The actual jscorebus code is unchanged wrt this, it just gets linked to a different library. This is necessary since JavaScriptCore is (at least currently) not distributed as a separate library, but instead inside the WebKit libraries.

Unfortunately QtWebKit doesn’t expose the JavaScriptCore API (I think they want to leverage QtScript usage by this) so there are few patches to QtWebKit required to actually use jscorebus with QtWebKit. The patches are included in the (very general) setup instructions.

Changelog for 1.2 can be viewed here.
