As outlined on the Servo blog, Servo has picked up various new features like object tags with image data URLs, "ex" units within CSS, and more. Servo can now support non-autoplay HTML5 video tags as long as the page provides its own controls.

Additionally, Servo continues making progress on being embed-friendly and allowing this web engine to be nicely embedded within other applications. KDAB for example has been working on embedding Servo within Qt software.

Over on the blog is a lengthy write-up about all of the new features tackled in April for the Servo web engine.
