For those updating from 1.8.x versions: It is advisable to start with new profile as updating profile from 1.8.x to 2.x version is not supported. You can create and remove profiles from preferences.

Most Windows issues should be now fixed. There is still issue with using QupZilla in virtual machine with 3D acceleration enabled - websites are flashing or shows entirely in black (QTBUG-43110). Workaround for this issue is to disable 3D acceleration for your virtual machine.

Windows builds of version 2.0 are now fixed

With switch to QtWebEngine, there were unfortunately issues with packaging all required files for Windows. As a result, on some Windows system new version of QupZilla didn't work at all.

It should be all fixed now, please re-download the installer (or portable) from homepage again. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Note for Windows XP: You may see warning popup messages on startup, it can be fixed by removing D3Dcompiler_47.dll in directory where you installed QupZilla.

QupZilla 2.0.0 released with QtWebEngine!

QupZilla 2.0.0 is now available. This is a new major version of QupZilla and also brings great changes. The biggest change is the switch of rendering engine, from old and unmaintained QtWebKit to shiny new QtWebEngine!

QtWebEngine is using Chromium to render web pages which brings much better compatibility with web pages and also great stability (thanks to multi-process architecture).

There are big changes (both architecture and API-wise) between QtWebKit and QtWebEngine, so porting of QupZilla took some time. There are also still features from QtWebKit not available in QtWebEngine, so some QupZilla features may not be available in new release. Those missing features will come back in next releases of QupZilla and QtWebEngine.

QupZilla now depends on latest Qt release (Qt 5.6) to be able to use all QtWebEngine features.

QupZilla is now available in repositories of all major distributions. From now on, I will stop providing Linux builds. This also means that my Ubuntu PPA will not get any new releases. I will still provide Windows builds.

Update: I did not ditch support for Linux, quite the opposite. I just said in this post that I myself will no longer provide Linux builds. You should install QupZilla from your distribution's repositories or build it yourself.
