Building, private browsing and identity crisis

So this release builds with WebKitGTK+ >= 1.4.3 without problems and addresses regressions with middle clicking toolbar buttons. Flash window on background tabs works correctly now and cookies are cleared on quit like they should if you enable it.

There’s a separate Private Browsing shortcut now so that you can see it in GNOME Shell, Unity, Slingshort or Synapse and also type “private” to easily open a private browsing session. Closed tabs can now be re-opened in private browsing (but won’t be saved once you close it as you would expect). You can also see downloaded files in supporting launchers now as recent documents.

The new Automatic option for Identify As now enables built-in compatiblity quirks to work around mis-behaving websites like Google’s. You can still choose a genuine Midori identity which doesn’t do that.

There’s also experimental GTK+3 support thanks to Lucas. For now it is not recommended because there are still issues to sort out. Build with –enable-gtk3 –disable-addons to try it out.

    I am getting the crash on my Win Xp pro 64bit system, too, everytime I try to add a bookmark.

    Thank you Christian. I love Midori and I’m very pleased to see it as a default browser in Elementary OS. Lovely OS with lovely browser ;)

    Seems there is a crash in 0.4.1 when adding bookmarks related to gtk combo boxes (gtk+ 2.24.6). 0.4.0 works fine.
