  • QtWebKit 2.2.x is still 2x times slower than Google's WebKit.

Platform Issues


  • Make it so that the Windows version can be built from Linux (mingw cross compiler support, quite a lot of work, esp. building Python which needs to run itself to compile the modules under Wine)
  • Fix make.exe -j support (would help with building on Windows as otherwise it requires baby-sitting).
  • Add support to 7za and installer-framework for symbolic links on Windows (see msdos command mklink) so there's no need to remove symlinks from the packages (and also MinGW's ln program)
  • Fix webkit build failure on Windows and Mac OS X
  • Fix installer framework so that it can install from local packages folder instead of always having to use the network -> this already works on Mac OS X (just modify config.xml to use file:/usr/www/ etc), but not on Windows (where it works partially, updates.xml is loaded but nothing else); I'm not sure about Linux, maybe add a command line option to override the repo url?
