Less than one month after the release of the Rekonq 2.0
web-browser for the KDE desktop as an alternative to Konqueror, Rekonq 2.1 has surfaced and it brings more features to this open-source WebKit-powered project.
New features to Rekonq 2.1 include better KPart integration, support for removing history items from the history page, improved icon management, and and improved Google Bookmark sync handling.
Features that were restored in Rekonq 2.1 include bringing back the web inspector position at the bottom, option to open the tab at the end, bookmark middle click action, edit toolbars, and the shortcuts configuration panel.
Bug-fixes include a KPart half-window problem, spellchecking with QtWebKit 2.3 Beta 1, WebApp with window favicon, the default application's locale for date formatting in the history, history ordering by date, and a crash fix when adding a favorite.
The KDE-focused WebKit-powered web-browser can be downloaded from its KDE.org project site
