* Thu Oct 12 2017
- Update to version 1.0.0
  * Dependency changes:
    +  Support for legacy QtWebKit (before 5.212 which is
    distributed independently from Qt) is dropped.
    +  Support for Python 3.4 is dropped.
    +  Support for Qt before 5.7.1 and PyQt before 5.7 is dropped.
    +  New dependency on the QtSql module and Qt sqlite support.
    +  New dependency on the attrs project (packaged as
    python-attr in some distributions).
    +  The depedency on PyOpenGL (when using QtWebEngine) got
    removed. Note that PyQt5.QtOpenGL is still a dependency.
    +  PyQt5.QtOpenGL is now always required, even with QtWebKit.
  * The QtWebEngine backend is now used by default. Note this
    means that QtWebEngine now should be a required dependency, and
    QtWebKit (if new enough) should be changed to an optional
  * Completely rewritten configuration system which ignores the
    old config file. See link:qute://help/configuring.html[] for
  * Various documentation files got moved to the doc/ subfolder;
    qutebrowser.desktop got moved to misc/.
  * :set now doesn't support toggling/cycling values anymore, that
    functionality got moved to :config-cycle.
  * New completion engine based on sqlite, which allows to
    complete the entire browsing history. The default for
    completion.web_history_max_items got changed to -1 (unlimited).
    If the completion is too slow on your machine, try setting it to
    a few 1000 items.
  * QtWebEngine: Spell checking support, see the
    spellcheck.languages setting.
  * New qt.args setting to pass additional arguments to
  * New backend setting to select the backend to use. Together
    with the previous setting, this should make most wrapper
    scripts unnecessary.

  * New config commands:
    + :config-cycle to cycle an option between multiple values.
    + :config-unset to remove a configured option.

  * Using :download now uses the page's title as filename.
  * Using :back or :forward with a count now skips intermediate
  * When there are multiple messages shown, the timeout is
  * :search now only clears the search if one was displayed
    before, so pressing <Escape> doesn't un-focus inputs anymore.
  * Pinned tabs now adjust to their text's width, so the
    tabs.width.pinned setting got removed.
  * :set-cmd-text now has a --run-on-count argument to run the
    underlying command directly if a count was given.
  * :scroll-perc got renamed to :scroll-to-perc.
  * Migrating QtWebEngine data written by versions before
    2016-11-15 (before v0.9.0) is now not supported anymore.
  * Upgrading qutebrowser with a version older than v0.4.0 still
    running now won't work properly anymore.
  * The --harfbuzz and --relaxed-config commandline arguments got
  * Exiting fullscreen via :fullscreen or buttons on a page now
    restores the correct previous window state
  * When input.insert_mode.auto_load is set, background tabs now
    don't enter insert mode anymore.
  * The keybinding help widget now works correctly when using
    keybindings with a count.
  * The window.hide_wayland_decoration setting now works correctly
* Sun Aug 13 2017

  * Added:
    + Private browsing is now implemented for QtWebEngine, and changed its

    + The adblocker now also blocks non-GET requests (e.g. POST).
    + javascript: links can now be hinted.
    + :view-source, :tab-clone and :navigate --tab now don't open the tab as
    "explicit" anymore, i.e. (with the default settings) open it next to the
    active tab.
    + qute:* pages now use qute://* instead (e.g. qute://version instead of
    qute:version), but the old versions are automatically redirected.
    + Texts in prompts are now selectable.
    + The default level for :messages is now info, not error
    + Trying to focus the currently focused tab with :tab-focus now focuses the

- Update to version 0.9.1 (changes since 0.8.1):
  * Prevent websites from downloading files to a location outside of the download
    folder with QtWebEngine.
  * New dependency: qutebrowser now depends on the Qt QML module, which is
    packaged separately in some distributions (as Qt Declarative/QML/Quick).
  * New :rl-backward-kill-word command which does what :rl-unix-word-rubout

    which replaces :paste-primary together with the {primary} replacement.
  * New :window-only command to close all other windows.
  * New prev-category and next-category arguments to :completion-item-focus
    to focus the previous/next category in the completion (bound to <Ctrl-Tab>
  * and <Ctrl-Shift-Tab> by default).
  * New :click-element command to fake a click on a element.
  * New :debug-log-filter command to change console log filtering on-the-fly.
  * New :debug-log-level command to change the console loglevel on-the-fly.
  * New general -> yank-ignored-url-parameters option to configure which URL
    parameters (like utm_source etc.) to strip off when yanking an URL.
  * Support for the HTML5 page visibility API
  * New readability userscript which shows a readable version of a page (using
    the readability-lxml python package)

  * New ui -> hide-scrollbar setting to hide the scrollbar independently of the
    user-stylesheet setting.
  * New general -> default-open-dispatcher setting to configure what to open
    downloads with (instead of e.g. xdg-open on Linux).
  * Support for PAC (proxy autoconfig) with QtWebKit
  * Hints are now drawn natively in Qt instead of using web elements. This has a
    few implications for users:
    The hints -> opacity setting does not exist anymore, but you can use
    rgba(r, g, b, alpha) colors instead for colors ->
    The hints -> font setting is not affected by
    fonts -> web-family-fixed anymore. Thus, a transformer got added to
    change Monospace to ${_monospace}.
    Gradients in hint colors can now be configured by using qlineargradient
    and friends instead of -webkit-gradient. The most common cases get
    migrated automatically, but if you drastically changed the defaults,
    you'll need to manually adjust your config.
    Styling hints by styling qutehint elements in user-stylesheet was
    never officially supported and does not work anymore.
    Hints are now not affected by the page's stylesheet or zoom anymore.
  * :bookmark-add now has a --toggle flag which deletes the bookmark if it
    already exists.
  * :bookmark-load now has a --delete flag which deletes the bookmark after
    loading it.
  * :open now also accepts quickmark names instead of URLs
  * :tab-move now optionally takes an index for absolute moving.
  * Commands taking either an argument or a count (like :zoom or :tab-focus)
    now prefer the count instead of showing an error message.
  * :open now has an --implicit argument to treat the opened tab as implicit
    (i.e. to open it at the position it would be opened if it was a clicked link)
  * :download-open and :prompt-open-download now have an optional cmdline
    argument to pass a commandline to open the download with.
  * :yank now has a position argument to select what to yank instead of using
  * Replacements like {url} can now also be used in the middle of an argument.
  * Consequently, commands taking another command (:later, :repeat and
    :bind) now don't immediately evaluate variables.
  * Tab titles in the :buffer completion now update correctly when a page's
    title is changed via javascript.
  * :hint now has a --mode <mode> flag to override the hint mode configured
    using the hints -> mode setting.
  * With new-instance-open-target set to a tab option, the tab is now opened in
    the most recently focused (instead of the last opened) window. This can be
    configured with the new new-instance-open-target.window setting.
  * It can also be set to last-visible to show the pages in the most recently
    visible window, or first-opened to use the first (oldest) available window.
  * Word hints now are more clever about getting the element text from some elements.
  * Completions for :help and :bind now also show hidden commands
  * The :buffer completion now also filters using the first column (id).
  * :undo has been improved to reopen tabs at the position they were closed.
  * :navigate now takes a count for up/increment/decrement.
  * The hints -> auto-follow setting now can be set to
    always/full-match/unique-match/never to more precisely control when
    hints should be followed automatically.
  * Counts can now be used with special keybindings (e.g. with modifiers).
    This was already implemented for v0.7.0 originally, but got reverted because
    it caused some issues and then never re-applied.
  * Sending a command to an existing instance (via "qutebrowser :reload") now
    doesn't mark it as urgent anymore.
  * tabs -> title-format now treats an empty string as valid.
  * Bindings for :, / and ? are now configured explicitly and not hardcoded
  * The completion -> show setting can now be set to always, auto or
  * :open-editor can now be used in any mode.
  * Lots of improvements to and bugfixes for the QtWebEngine backend, such as
    working hints. However, using qutebrowser directly from git is still advised
    when using --backend webengine.
    content -> javascript-can-open-windows got renamed to
  * :prompt-accept now optionally accepts a value which overrides the one
    entered in the input box. yes and no can be used as values for yes/no
  * The new --qt-arg and --qt-flag arguments can be used to pass
    arguments/flags to Qt's commandline.
  * Error/warning/info messages are now shown stacked above the statusbar.
  * This also added various new settings:
    colors -> messages.fg.error (renamed from statusbar.fg.error)
    colors -> (renamed from
    colors -> messages.border.error
    colors -> messages.fg.warning (renamed from statusbar.fg.warning)
    colors -> (renamed from
    colors -> messages.border.warning
    colors ->
    colors ->
    colors ->
    fonts -> messages.error
    fonts -> messages.warning
    fonts ->
  * The qute:settings page now also shows option descriptions.
  * qute:version and qutebrowser --version now show various important paths
  * :spawn/userscripts now show a nicer error when a script wasn't found
  * Various functionality now works when javascript is disabled with QtWebKit
  * Various commands/settings taking left/right/previous arguments now take
    prev/next/last-used to remove ambiguity.
  * The ui -> user-stylesheet setting now only takes filenames, not CSS snippets
  * ui -> window-title-format now has a new {backend} replacement
  * :hint has a new --add-history argument to add the URL to the history for
    yank/spawn targets.
  * :set now cycles through values if more than one argument is given.
  * :open now opens default-page without an URL even without -t/-b/-w given.
  * The :paste command got deprecated as :open with {clipboard} and
    {primary} can be used instead.
  * The :paste-primary command got deprecated as :insert-text {primary} can
    be used instead.
  * The :prompt-yes and :prompt-no commands got deprecated as
    :prompt-accept yes and :prompt-accept no can be used instead.
  * The :yank-selected command got merged into :yank as :yank selection
    and thus removed.
  * The :completion-item-prev and :completion-item-next commands got merged
    into a new :completion-focus {prev,next} command and thus removed.
  * The ui -> hide-mouse-cursor setting since it was completely broken and
    nobody seemed to care.
  * The hints -> opacity setting - see the "Changed" section for details.
  * The completion -> auto-open setting got merged into completion -> show and
    thus removed.
  * All --qt-* arguments got replaced by --qt-arg and --qt-flag and thus
  * The -c/--confdir, --datadir and --cachedir arguments got removed, as
  - -basedir should be sufficient.
  * :undo now doesn't undo tabs "closed" by :tab-detach anymore.
  * Fixed an issue with hint chars not being cleared correctly when leaving hint
  * :tab-detach now fails correctly when there's only one tab open.
  * Various small issues with the command completion

  * Fixed crash when using hints on Void Linux.
  * Fixed compatibility with Python 3.5.2+ on Debian unstable
  * Compatibility with pdfjs v1.6.210

    already worked before)
  * The command completion now updates correctly when changing aliases
  * The tabbar now displays correctly with the Adwaita Qt theme
  * The default sk keybinding now sets the commandline to :bind correctly
  * Fixed crash when closing a window without focusing it
