Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Fedora WebKitGTK+ 1.1.8 contains many bug-fixes and updates including spell-checking support, enhanced error reporting, lots of ATK enhancements, support for copying images to the clipboard, and a new printing API (since 1.1.5) that allows applications better control and monitoring of the printing process. Also, a potential buffer overflow in SVGList::insertItemBefore has been fixed (CVE-2009-0945); and the JIT compiler is now enabled by default for x86_64 systems. Please see the upstream changelog for the full list of fixes and enhancements: http://svn.webkit.org/repository/webkit/trunk/WebKit/gtk/NEWS
