As you have no doubt heard by now, the Safari 3 Public Beta is now available for OS X and (surprise!) for Windows XP and Vista. We’re very excited to be bringing the WebKit engine to Windows. CSS shadows, border images, multiple backgrounds, outlines, SVG, AJAX-y goodness, it’s all there!
What does this mean for WebKit? Well, it means that we’re making the leap in a big way to another platform, and we’d like all you Windows developers out there to join us!
The Windows WebKit port will be landing later today. We’ll also be landing all of the same scripts that are available to Mac contributors for easy checkout, building and running on Windows. We’ll provide information on the Debug menu (yes, it’s there!), nightly builds (so that you can follow the progress of the project), and some other exciting improvements that will be coming for *both* Mac and Windows!
If you’re a Windows developer and want to get involved with the open source project, come find us later today on #webkit (FreeNode) where we will have engineers ready to assist you with checking out and building the code.
