Comment 3 Vincent Danen 2010-05-28 21:06:28 UTC
Upstream indicates this is a regression probably caused here (via https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37815#c60):

"Reverted r59693 for reason:

Broke GTK Release

Committed r59727: <http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/59727>"

It looks like webkitgtk 1.2.0 is using r56916 based on the ChangeLog entries.  If that is the case, then this would not affect webkitgtk (as we provide it) at all.

Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2010-05-28 21:08:29 UTC
Geolocation is not supported by Konqueror.

Comment 5 Vincent Danen 2010-06-28 17:39:08 UTC
This is being made public now, we've been given the go-ahead from upstream to do so.
