Hi All!

Balsa has for some time included experimental code for using WebKit to render HTML message parts, instead of GtkHTML-2 or -3. Recent versions of WebKit (1.1.10+) have been causing hangs, which are fixed in git master, but instead don't render anything. I've recently found some spam that crashes earlier versions. So as of now we have no reliable way of using WebKit in Balsa.

The rendering problem with recent WebKit does not seem to be a WebKit bug--a simple test program uses it successfully. We'd welcome any insights into why it doesn't work in Balsa!



Good news!  The rendering problem is fixed in git master.

Another recent HTML change is the beginning of a text-search capability in HTML message parts, using a WebKit option. You can find a string--but as of now, the widget doesn't scroll to display the found text...still a work in progress.
