Summary0001997: Gnome IDE should use a newer webkit
DescriptionThe GNOME IDE for inform currently uses an old version of webkitgtk with several known security vulnerabilities.

Using Inform 7 as an attack vector seems unlikely, so I don't think this is a severe issue from that perspective. However, more and more applications are moving to a more recent webkitgtk, and distros will probably drop support for the old version eventually. I've already heard talk of that in Arch, though they are obviously generally ahead of other distros for that sort of thing.

So I think it would be beneficial to look into what would be necessary to eventually port the Gnome IDE to use webkit2.

Agreed, would be nice. A prerequisite for this is first using a newer GTK.
