Any chance of an update to the Midori web browser? The latest version on their web site is 0.012 whereas the one in the reps is 0.0.18. It seems like development is continuing and this is a very fast little browser which shows a lot of promise. It opens in a second or so and renders pages very well.

Thanks
Andy

I would like to see the newest Midori also.  It looks very promising.  I've been trying to compile it myself, but I keep getting errors having to do with not having the latest WebKit.  A package for 6.0 would be fine; I have it installed but I'm not using it right now.

Thanks,
Tom

I'm going to package it for VL 6.0.  I don't have a 5.9.x box so I can't do a package for that series of VL releases.

Thanks Caitlyn, that'll be one more small reason for me to upgrade when the final release comes out, though right now I'm pretty happy with 5.9 Gold...

Well... this is one package I won't be able to do.  Midori depends on WebKit.  I successfully built all the dependencies but the compilation failed on WebKit itself, r40471.  It's a Java error and I have no Java expertise.  In addition, the WebKit code is simply huge (>300MB) and I don't have either the time or the inclination to try and figure this one out.

Sorry, folks.
