Hot soup, history completion and extensions

So the next iteration of Midori is due. We now actually have integration
of history completion in the location entry, something that many people
have been waiting for long enough. libSoup is used in place of GIO for
loading icons, viewing sources, saving files, and for the first time
icons are actually cached on disk. The side panel gained a compact mode
to take up considerably less space. Bookmarks in the toolbar finally
match the menu and the panel at any time, this was a long standing
annoyance. The Web Inspector as supported by WebKitGtk since a while is
now supported. The beginning of unit testing has emerged.
And finally, the ground work for an extension interface has been done,
extension modules can be written in C at the moment. Bindings to Lua
and/ or Python are planned for the future. Note that the side panel
doesn’t currently expose the extension management, but the Page holder
was actually rewritten as one of the example extensions. Be welcome to
try it out.

So [http://goodies.xfce.org/releases/midori/midori-0.1.1.tar.bz2 download midori v0.1.1] already!

    There is actually support for cookie storage in git, which depends on the current unstable libsoup. So it will be in the next release :)

    Dillo2 is improving too. It seems it will have decent css support soon, see -> lists.auriga.wearlab.de/pipermail/dillo-dev/2008-December/005480.html :)
