Arora 0.2

This evening I tagged Arora 0.2.

Most of the changes have to do with bug fixes and improvements all through Arora. Further fixes have gone into Qt's Networking code and QtWebKit and will be part of Qt 4.4.1 (and later Qt 4.5).

Here are just a few of the changes that are part of 0.2:
- Improved tabs
- Add make install on unix
- Translations
- New reset dialog
- New about dialog
- Add search banner
- Rename to Arora and a new application icon
- Project specific git hooks
- Branch from the Qt demo browser with new autotests and manualtests.

Although most of these "bigger" features are not exactly exciting this release has really been about polishing Arora which is where all the smaller patches went. More and more Arora is able to be a primary browser and is very stable for day to day use.

We have gotten a number of new devs who have contributed patches to Arora. A big thanks to all the devs for their patches:

Jason A. Donenfeld
Jakub Lužný
Matvey Kozhev
Daniel Albuschat
Ariya Hidayat
Adam Treat
Tor Arne Vestbø
John Schember
Chris Lee
Marius Bugge Monsen
Chris Hills

Onto 0.3!

QtWebKit projects

Ran across another QtWebKit project this weekeend: wkhtml A simple shell utility to convert html to pdf using the webkit rendering engine, and Qt. There will no doubt be many usefull applications that use QtWebKit, do you know of any others that have been released already?
