Updates from the Evolution/WebKit front

The newest member of the Evolution Team at Red Hat, Dan Vrátil, has been making exciting progress in transitioning Evolution from our aging HTML renderer, GtkHTML, to the more modern and full-featured WebKit/GTK+. He's still trying to get his blog added to Planet GNOME so I wanted to highlight a couple of his recent posts:

Evolution meets WebKit

Evolution gets a new e-mail formatter

You can already try out the new WebKit integration in Evolution 3.5.

It currently uses WebKit/GTK+ to render received emails for display and printing, but not yet to compose emails for sending. That's a whole nother barrel of monkeys. But that's next on Dan's list, and then we can finally retire GtkHTML!
