We’ve also resolved a high severity security issue by disabling MathML in this release. The WebKit MathML implementation isn’t quite ready for prime time yet but we are excited to enable it again in a future release once the security issues have been addressed.

Many of the above bugs were detected using AddressSanitizer.

We’d also like to thank Christian Holler, miaubiz and Atte Kettunen for working with us during the development cycle and preventing security regressions from ever reaching the stable channel. Rewards were issued.

A full list of changes in this build is available in the SVN revision log. Interested in switching release channels? Find out how. If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug.
