QupZilla 2.1.0 released!

QupZilla 2.1.0 is now available. This is a new major version of QupZilla, second major release since the switch to QtWebEngine. This version brings a lot of fixes, brings back some features present in 1.8 version and also a number of completely new features.

SpellCheck
Spell checking in web inputs is now supported again. It needs QtWebEngine 5.8 and custom dictionary format. There is a tool, distributed alongside QtWebEngine, to convert Hunspell dictionaries. More information can be found here.

Native Scrollbars
QtWebEngine (and Chromium) uses custom scrollbar style that doesn't follow desktop style by default. QupZilla now comes with an option to use native scrollbars instead, enabled by default. If you experience any issues, it can always be disabled in preferences.

Native scrollbars
Tab Indicators
Pinned tabs now indicates when there is background activity (eg. new tweet, new message, new e-mail, ...) with a small black dot in bottom right corner. If there is an audio playing in a tab, audio icon will be displayed instead of favicon. Clicking on the audio icon will mute (or unmute) the tab.
