Wow!  They're going to build WebKit before releasing Visual C++ compiler updates?
Comment 6 Fujii Hironori 2018-09-04 17:48:41 PDT
According to Don, this issue will be fixed in 15.8.3.
Comment 7 Fujii Hironori 2018-09-11 17:36:53 PDT
I confirmed version 15.8.3 also reports the same error. Is it a problem in WebKit side?
