Highlights of the WebKitGTK+ 2.12.0 release

    the same as using the multiple process model and setting a process limit of 1.

    is consistent with GTK+ too.
  - Support for windowless NPAPI plugins with no UI in non X11 platforms.
  - Enable GSS-Negotiate support when available in libsoup.
  - Improved general performance by better handling glib main loop sources.
  - New API to save and restore a WebView session.
