security update in Fedora 24 for webkitgtk4

Status: stable a year ago

This update addresses the following vulnerabilities:

Additional fixes:

  • Make accelerating compositing mode on-demand again. By default it will only be used for websites that require it, saving a lot of memory on websites that don’t need it.
  • Release unused UpdateAtlas and reduce the tile coverage on memory pressure.
  • The media backend now stores preloaded media in /var/tmp instead of user cache dir.
  • Make inspector work again when accelerated compositing support is disabled.
  • Fix a deadlock when the media player is destroyed.
  • Fix network process crashes when loading custom URI schemes.
  • Fix overlay scrollbars that are over a subframe.
  • Fix a crash in GraphicsContext3D::drawArrays when using OpenGL 3.2 core profile.
  • Fix BadDamage X errors happening when resizing the WebView.
  • Fix several crashes and rendering issues.

Automated Test Results

Test results and gating status may sometimes conflict as the gating status is retrieved periodically by Bodhi's backend server, while the test results presented here are retrieved upon page load. If your update is marked as gated while all the tests show green/passed, the next check of gating status should open the gate.
