Yes, but pre beta when I had to deal with the release it was the
latest and greatest ;-)

Is that on specific HW or in general?

Changes it webkitgtk maybe?

I've not seen a new upstream release, do you have a link to the
required patch(s) by chance?

Weird, I'm guessing this is card specific but I'm just guessing.

telepathy also needs to be fixed, it was failure to build and had to
be rescued, Alex took over those packages, with me sponsoring him and
said he would fix them pre-beta and I've since had radio silence
since. This has other implications because I will need assistance in
the move to python3 from a packaging PoV as I really don't have the
time any more to do this all on my own.
