WebKit weekly report #36

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Fri, 2014-06-27 07:37

Hello everyone,

Things are rather quiet on the WebKit side this week. I'm reviewing and fixing the remaining bugs with the new drawing code, which is now working rather well. On the WebKit side, I have implemented a limited form of transform support for regions (only handling translation and scaling, not shear and rotations), which has very good results. As a consequence, we now have mostly correct drawing and quite good performance. Before I do a release (I know the version in current nightlies is quite outdated now), I want to fix one more bug, which is the lack of video display on youtube. This is probably a simple fix once I understand why the current code isn't working anymore.

WebKit weekly report #35

Hello world, another update!

The most exciting news this week is that I enabled the CSS JIT on Haiku. This is a new feature in WebKit that applies the same optimization techniques used for JavaScript, to CSS. CSS is becoming a complex language, and matching elements in the page with CSS rules and selectors can take a lot of time with complex stylesheets. WebKit will now use a JIT to compile CSS rules, which allows faster matching, and thus faster layout and rendering of the page. Since this uses mostly the same code as JS, enabling it was just a matter of switching the flag on in the webkit compile-time configuration.
