That's all for this week, folks :). If I have missed anything or you'd like to mention something in the next digest, please send me an email.

BTW, if you'd like to join the development, please subscribe to the webkit-dev and the webkit-qt mailing lists. You can also join our weekly meeting point on IRC in #qtwebkit on freenode every Monday at 15:00. There's no fixed agenda, but instead there's a good chance that most developers will be around, if you're looking for code reviews, etc. in a particular area. See you there!
