QT --
There's a new technology preview release of QtWebKit for those wanting to use this formerly retired WebKit-based module instead of the newer QtWebEngine that makes use of Chromium's Blink engine.

As covered earlier this month, QtWebKit has been aiming for a return by interested developers wishing to continue to leverage WebKit in Qt applications rather than moving over to Qt WebEngine. Konstantin Tokarev who has been leading the revival on QtWebKit announced the release of its second technology preview release.

QtWebKit Tech Preview 2 restores various Web APIs to improve feature parity with QtWebKit 5.7, adds support for OS X, fixes a number of bugs, and also improves the build system integration.

Interested Qt developers can learn more via this mailing list announcement.
