New WebKit port targeting Wayland and focusing on hardware acceleration and embedded systems.

We are excited to announce a new port of the WebKit engine that exclusively targets the Wayland display protocol. Its main goal is to provide both great performance and a small resource footprint, making it a good foundation for Web-oriented solutions on embedded systems.

If you are interested in knowing the main technical details we have created a section in the Igalia web page (WebKit For Wayland) which gathers all the resources for the project. Also, be sure to read Zan Dobersek's introductory blog post, the first in a series of in-depth posts.

We are thrilled with the possibilities of this work. While still in early stages, we are already planning additional features and to extend support to more hardware platforms.
