Description Michael Catanzaro 2021-04-07 12:15:24 PDT
I just wasted a bunch of time trying to figure out why my Epiphany was using wpebackend-fdo 1.9.1 when I had built 1.9.90. Turns out webkit://gpu is presenting the version it was built against as if it were the version it is using at runtime. That's unhelpful.

Thanks for the patch. If this patch contains new public API please make sure it follows the guidelines for new WebKit2 GTK+ API. See https://trac.webkit.org/wiki/WebKitGTK/AddingNewWebKit2API

Note that WPE port already does this nicely for libwpe... it's only a problem for GTK.

(WPE port can't print the backend version because it has no way to do that, but GTK can because it always uses the fdo backend.)
