I'm happy to announce that qutebrowser v0.10.0 was just released!

This release mostly was focused on adding some missing QtWebEngine
features and working around bugs with Qt 5.8 and QtWebEngine.

It also adds full support for QtWebKit-NG (packaged as qt5-webkit-ng
in Archlinux) as an alternative.

Also, OS X builds are finally back with this release, and contain the
new QtWebEngine backend only.

The full changelog:

## Added

- Userscripts now have a new `$QUTE_COMMANDLINE_TEXT` environment variable,
  containing the current commandline contents
- New `ripbang` userscript to create a searchengine from a duckduckgo bang
- QtWebKit Reloaded (also called QtWebKit-NG) is now fully supported
- Various new functionality with the QtWebEngine backend:
    * Printing support with Qt >= 5.8
    * Proxy support with Qt >= 5.8
    * Tor the `general -> print-element-backgrounds` option with Qt >= 5.8
    * The `content -> cookies-store` option
    * The `storage -> cache-size` option
    * The `colors -> webpage.bg` option
    * The HTML5 fullscreen API (e.g. youtube videos) with QtWebEngine
    * `:download --mhtml`
- New `qute:history` URL and `:history` command to show the browsing history
- Open tabs are now auto-saved on each successful load and restored in case of a crash
- `:jseval` now has a `--file` flag so you can pass a javascript file
- `:session-save` now has a `--only-active-window` flag to only save the active window
- OS X builds are back, and built with QtWebEngine

## Changed

- PyQt 5.7/Qt 5.7.1 is now required for the QtWebEngine backend
- Scrolling with the scrollwheel while holding shift now scrolls sideways
- New way of clicking hints with which solves various small issues
- When yanking a mailto: link via hints, the mailto: prefix is now stripped
- Zoom level messages are now not stacked on top of each other anymore
- qutebrowser now automatically uses QtWebEngine if QtWebKit is unavailable
- :history-clear now asks for a confirmation, unless it's run with --force.
- `input -> mouse-zoom-divider` can now be 0 to disable zooming by mouse wheel
- `network -> proxy` can also be set to `pac+file://...` now to
  use a local proxy autoconfig file (on QtWebKit)

## Fixed

- Various bugs with Qt 5.8 and QtWebEngine:
    * Segfault when closing a window
    * Segfault with when closing a tab with a search active
    * Fixed various mouse actions (like automatically entering insert mode) not working
    * Fixed hints sometimes not working
    * Segfault when opening a URL after a QtWebEngine renderer process crash
- Other QtWebEngine fixes:
    * Insert mode now gets entered correctly with a non-100% zoom
    * Crash reports are now re-enabled when using QtWebEngine
    * Fixed crashes when closing tabs while hinting
    * Using :undo or :tab-clone with a view-source:// or chrome:// tab is now prevented, as it segfaults
- `:enter-mode` now refuses to enter modes which can't be entered manually (which caused crashes)
- `:record-macro` (`q`) now doesn't try to record macros for special keys without a text
- Fixed PAC (proxy autoconfig) not working with QtWebKit
- `:download --mhtml` now uses the new file dialog
- Word hints are now upper-cased correctly when hints -> uppercase is true
- Font validation is now more permissive in the config, allowing e.g. "Terminus
  (TTF)" as font name
- Fixed starting on newer PyQt/sip versions with LibreSSL
- When downloading files with QtWebKit, a User-Agent header is set when possible
- Fixed showing of keybindings in the :help completion
- `:navigate prev/next` now detects `rel` attributes on `<a>` elements, and
  handles multiple `rel` attributes correctly
- Fixed a crash when hinting with target `userscript` and spawning a non-existing script
- Lines in Jupyter notebook now trigger insert mode
