Uzbl - web interface tools which adhere to the unix philosophy.
Uzbl follows the UNIX philosophy - "Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface." Uzbl comes in different flavors:

With a lot of big refactoring and smaller patches piling up over the past years this release is, needless to say, way overdue.
So what's with the version number? Why not 1.0? We wanted to make a 1.0 the version with fully supported WebKit2, but this is not that. In fact WebKit2 support is completely removed from 0.9 to let us focus on getting something stable.
With 179 files changed, 20242 insertions(+), 10994 deletions(-) the full list of changes would be much to long include here, instead here's a small overview.
Looking ahead WebKit2 is the next big challenge and the plan is to start building uzbl 1.0 in the next branch that will only support WebKit2 but still with the same API towards scripts etc. as this release.
This release is mostly fixes for bugs.
handle_multi_clickvariable that can be set so that you can do your own handling

forwardcommands can now take a numeric argument to go back or forward multiple steps
In the development version we've rewritten the event manager in Python 3 and exposed more Webkit functionality.
