JavaScriptCore is the JavaScript engine used in WebKit. It consists
of the following building blocks: lexer, parser, start-up interpreter
(LLInt), baseline JIT, a low-latency optimizing JIT (DFG), and a
high-throughput optimizing JIT (FTL).
This build comes from the GTK+ port of WebKit (API version 4.0).
This package contains the introspection data, which can be used by
packages using the GIRepository format to generate dynamic bindings.

2016-03-23 - Iain Lane <>
webkit2gtk (2.10.9-1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Merge with Debian unstable. Remaining changes:
+ Build with GeoClue 1, which is what we still use in Ubuntu.
2016-03-18 - Alberto Garcia <>
webkit2gtk (2.10.9-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
2016-03-15 - Iain Lane <>
webkit2gtk (2.10.8-1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=low
* Build with GeoClue 1, which is what we still use in Ubuntu.
2016-03-12 - Alberto Garcia <>
webkit2gtk (2.10.8-1) unstable; urgency=high
* New upstream release. This fixes CVE-2016-1726 (Closes: #802380).
* Allow building the package with debhelper < 9.20151219. This won't
produce any debug packages (since they are automatically generated
now), but it can be useful for backports.
+ debian/control:
- Revert build dependency on debhelper back to >= 9.
+ debian/rules:
- Don't make dh_strip fail if it doesn't support --ddeb-migration.
* debian/rules:
+ The list of architectures in which the debug packages are causing
problems continues to grow, so let's try the opposite approach: we
build by default using -g1 except in the cases where we know that
-g works fine (amd64, ppc64, ppc64el).
+ Enable all hardening flags.
* debian/patches/fix-ftbfs-m68k.patch:
+ Enclose the changes to the compile assertions inside an #ifdef block
so they only apply to m68k.
* debian/patches/fix-ftbfs-alpha.patch:
+ Fix FTBFS in alpha (Closes: #815124).
* debian/patches/fix-ftbfs-sparc64.patch:
+ Add patch metadata.
* debian/source/lintian-overrides:
+ Update overrides so the latest lintian doesn't give more
source-is-missing false positives.
* debian/control:
+ Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.7; no changes needed.
+ Use secure URIs for the Vcs-* fields.
2016-02-12 - Iain Lane <>
webkit2gtk (2.10.6-1ubuntu1) xenial; urgency=medium
* Build with GeoClue 1, which is what we still use in Ubuntu.
2016-01-27 - Alberto Garcia <>
webkit2gtk (2.10.6-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
2016-01-21 - Alberto Garcia <>
webkit2gtk (2.10.5-1) unstable; urgency=high
* New upstream release. Fixes CVE-2015-7096 and CVE-2015-7098.
This release doesn't contain any non-DFSG files in the original
tarball, so we can ship it as-is and remove the +dfsg suffix from the
Debian version.
+ debian/watch:
- Remove the 'dversionmangle' option.
+ debian/rules:
- Remove the get-orig-source target.
- Don't generate (and clean) jquery.min.js.
+ debian/control:
- Remove build dependency on slimit.
+ debian/jquery-1.9.1.js:
- Remove.
* debian/patches/fix-ftbfs-sparc64.patch:
+ Fix FTBFS on sparc64 (Closes: #806816).
* debian/rules:
+ Don't pass -DENABLE_YARR_JIT=0, passing -DENABLE_JIT=OFF already
takes care of that.
+ Remove EXTRA_DH_ARGUMENTS, this is no longer being used.
* debian/watch:
+ Only scan releases from the stable branches.
* Migrate to automatic -dbgsym packages:
+ debian/control:
- Remove the entries for libjavascriptcoregtk-4.0-18-dbg and
- Require debhelper >= 9.20151219.
+ debian/rules:
- Replace --dbg-package with --ddeb-migration in dh_strip.
* debian/copyright:
+ Update copyright years.
+ Remove mentions to jquery (which is no longer included) and
FontWithNoValidEncoding.fon, which is a regular font in the FON file
