Where do I find out what’s new in WebKit?

I’m a big fan of using nightly and pre-release versions of browsers; not for day-to-day use, but to find out what new features are on their way. Obviously this is made a lot easier when detailed changelogs are provided.

Firefox do a great job of this with their website The Burning Edge, which gives fortnightly (more or less) lists of changes in the latest trunk builds, and Opera’s Desktop Team Blog does likewise on a semi-regular basis. The Internet Explorer team have done a good job of documenting all the changes in IE9 with the Platform Preview Release Notes.

The notable exception seems to be WebKit. I’ve looked around but I can’t find any site which gives an overview of changes in the nightly builds. I could subscribe to the RSS feed of their Trac, but it would be a nightmare trying to find the interesting features amongst all the technical changes. The Surfin’ Safari and Planet WebKit aren’t any help.

So does anyone know how to find this information for WebKit? I can’t believe it doesn’t exist.

Update: As if by magic, look what I found just a day later: Last week in.. WebKit and Chromium!


I’ve updated my Speaking page to include more conferences, more videos, and a little on my speaking requirements and preferences. I’m planning to cut down on the number of talks I give in 2014 (twelve is too many), but am always open to interesting offers and opportunities, so please get in touch if you’re organising an event.
