ANN: Epiphany 2.22.0

Epiphany 2.22.0 

"Minus 379"

This 2.22 release of Epiphany brings a few architectural changes as well as 
some user-visible ones. This release blesses us with a migration from gnome-vfs
to GIO. Also, thanks to a refactoring of Epiphany's internals, cross 
engine support has improved a lot. If you're feeling adventurous, feel free to 
try Epiphany with the WebKit backend-- but be warned, several important 
features, such as cookies, are still missing.

Clearing privacy-sensitive data is now easier than ever. From a single dialog,
you can clear your cookies, cache, history and saved passwords. Furthermore,
the download manager will now show notification bubbles if the download window
is hidden and a download completes. The address entry now filters 
history and bookmark duplicates, an image preview has been added to the 
filechooser, and finally, the history window can now display the date and time
of the last visit.

Thanks to all contributors, and we wish to mention that, as a 
result of the hard labor of all translators, Epiphany has been localized in 
more than 70 languages!

The list below covers all development releases from 2.21.90 up to and
including 2.22.0.
