QtWebKit Technology Preview 3



  • Hello everyone,

    We are pleased to announce QtWebKit Technology Preview 3!

    Highlights of this release are:

    • NPAPI and Qt plugins are finally supported on X11 and Windows (not on macOS
      yet, sorry)

    • Bulk of the patches which have never been in the trunk of webkit.org was merged from Qt repository. Also, some regressions resulting from migration to new WebKit branch were fixed, which means that now there's very little chance for you to hit a bug already fixed a year or two ago :)

    • Now we finally have nice compact tarballs, and lightweight git repository for those of you who just wants to build the bleeding edge and is not going to develop QtWebKit itself [1]

    More detailed release changelog, as well as binary builds you can find at

    Thank you!
    I can't switch to QWebEngine as long as they do not support NaCl.
    Could you give an example of using NPAPI?



  • Could you give an example of using NPAPI?

    Typical use case is running Flash and Java plugins, this feature was highly requested by our users.
