This is a bug fix release in the stable 2.36 series.
What’s new in the WebKitGTK 2.36.3 release? ===========================================
– Support capturing already encoded video streams, which takes advantage of encoding done in hardware by devices which support this feature. – Avoid using experimental GStreamer elements for video demuxing. – Avoid using the legacy GStreamer VA-API decoding plug-ins, which often cause rendering issues and are not much maintained. Their usage can be re-enabled setting WEBKIT_GST_ENABLE_LEGACY_VAAPI=1 in the environment. – Fix playback of YouTube streams which use dynamic ad insertion. – Fix display capture with Pipewire. – Fix the build without the X11 target when X11 headers are not present. – Fix several crashes and rendering issues.
What is WebKitGTK? ==================
WebKitGTK is the GNOME platform port of the WebKit rendering engine. Offering WebKit’s full functionality through a set of GObject-based APIs, it is suitable for projects requiring any kind of web integration, from hybrid HTML/CSS applications to full-fledged web browsers.
