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.
