This is a bug fix release in the stable 2.36 series.

What's new in the WebKitGTK 2.36.3 release?

  - Support capturing already encoded video streams, which takes advantage
    of encoding done in hardware by devices which support this feature.
  - Avoid using experimental GStreamer elements for video demuxing.
  - Avoid using the legacy GStreamer VA-API decoding plug-ins, which often
    cause rendering issues and are not much maintained. Their usage can be
    re-enabled setting WEBKIT_GST_ENABLE_LEGACY_VAAPI=1 in the environment.
  - Fix playback of YouTube streams which use dynamic ad insertion.
  - Fix display capture with Pipewire.
  - Fix the build without the X11 target when X11 headers are not present.
  - Fix several crashes and rendering issues.
