With 901 commits to the various branches on WebKit’s repository, last week brought highlights including the move of WTF and a new CSS property to aid usage of responsive images: image-set().
An initial implementation of the image-set() CSS function landed in WebKit, as was proposed for the CSS Images Level 4 module last month. Mixed percentage and absolute combinations for calc() may now be used for masks, background positioning and image sizing, Hyatt is working on the new Multiple Column implementation and fieldsets won’t stretch to minimum intrinsic width anymore if an explicit width has been specified. Besides various other Flexible Box Layout changes, the flexing algorithm got updated.
Other changes which occurred last week:
- The default WebSocket version to use for WebKit ports has been changed to RFC 6455.
- While still completely disabled by default, CSS Shaders can now be compiled for Chromium.
- The style sharing optimization can now be applied to elements with style attributes as well.
- Support for “magic” iframes within WebKit has been removed.
