APIs for OS X 10.10, iOS 8 appear in open-source WebKit channels
New developer APIs for OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 are already being pushed to open-source channels for WebKit, users note. A <a href="https://github.com/WebKit/webkit/blob/master/Source/WebKit2/UIProcess/API/Cocoa/WKWebView.h">new class</A> involves a view that replaces the current OS X and iOS support for displaying inline content. It's believed to include cross-platform compatibility, eliminating the need to use "WebView" for OS X and "UIWebView" for iOS. At the same time though, some separate view classes <a href="http://9to5mac.com/2014/06/02/new-developer-apis-for-ios-8-and-os-x-10-10-appear-in-open-source-webkit/">remain</a>, meaning that the platforms are still not thoroughly meshed.<br /><br />Apple is only due to reveal OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 later today, at its WWDC 2014 keynote from San Francisco. The event will be <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/310973==http://www.macnn.com/articles/14/06/02/ios.users.limited.to.safari/" rel='nofollow'>streamed live</a> for people who can't attend in person. The company usually reserves publishing open-source content until after a related product has been announced, which in this case is the Safari web browser.
