State and Future of QtWebKit

Since last year we have released Qt 5.0 and 5.1 with new versions of QtWebKit. In the WebKit project Apple changed their contribution model for the WebKit2 layer, and the project was halved with the exit of Google and the creation of Blink.

Part of the QtWebKit team has started the project QtWebEngine to explore the option of providing a Chromium/Blink based web engine instead of QtWebKit, and in addition to that, the iOS port of Qt will need their own webview API since Apple does not allow additional web engines on their iOS devices.
