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.
