Hallo @tpopela,

why is this tagged a security update? There was no WebKitGTK+ Security Advisory since WSA-2018-0002, is there an upcoming one?

Cheers

This update has been pushed to testing.

Works

It crashes every time I open a PDF in Cinnamon with xreader https://retrace.fedoraproject.org/faf/reports/2077056/ Once opened, PDFs are displayed properly.

Trying to view message source in Evolution leads to an empty page with no sign what's wrong. Going back to 2.18.6 fixes the issue, thus it's a regression in the webkitgtk4 package. The report is: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1560312

This update has reached the stable karma threshold and can be pushed to stable now if the maintainer wishes.

works as expected

For the xreader crash I opened https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=184006 and I'm investigating the Evolution bug. Both problems I take as a minor ones and I'm going to push the update now.

Thanks @tpopela, there's bug #1561594 which abrt suggests as related, though Michael Catanzaro already closed it as not helpful.

This update has been pushed to stable.

After update atril crash with msg: "FATAL: Could not allocate gigacage memory with maxAlignment = 34359738368, totalSize = 103079215104."

Please see https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=183329#c22 and following comments there

@tpopela setting vm.overcommit_memory = 1 solves the problem with atril, but I'm think it is still bug not a feature.
