File qutebrowser.changes of Package qutebrowser

Tue Jun  4 00:31:01 UTC 2024 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 3.2.0:
  * When qutebrowser receives a SIGHUP it will now reload any file in use (same as the :config-source command does)
  * The Chromium security patch version is now shown in the backend
    string in --version and :version. This reflects the latest
    Chromium version that security fixes have been backported to
    the base QtWebEngine version from.
  * With QtWebEngine 6.7+, the colors.webpage.darkmode.enabled
    setting can now be changed at runtime and supports URL patterns
  * A few more completions will now match search terms in any
    order: :quickmark-*, :bookmark-*, :tab-take and :tab-select
    (for the quick and bookmark categories).
  * Elements with an ARIA role="switch" now get hints (toggle
    switches like e.g. on cookie banners).
  * The tor_identity userscript now validates that the
    -c|--control-port argument value is an int.
  * input.insert_mode.auto_load sometimes not triggering due to
    a race condition.
  * Worked around qutebrowser quitting when closing a KDE file
    dialog due to a Qt bug.
  * Trying to use qutebrowser after it’s been deleted/moved on disk
    (e.g. after a Python upgrade) should now not crash anymore.
  * When the QtWebEngine resources dir couldn’t be found,
    qutebrowser now doesn’t crash anymore (but QtWebEngine still
  * Fixed a rare crash in the completion widget when there was no
    selection model when we went to clear that, probably when
    leaving a mode.
  * The latest PDF.js release (v4.2.67) is now supported when
    backed by QtWebEngine 6.6+

Mon Dec 11 13:29:26 UTC 2023 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 3.1.0:
  * The darkmode settings grayscale.all, grayscale.images and
    increase_text_contrast got removed, following removals in
  * New smart-simple value for
    colors.webpage.darkmode.policy.images, which on QtWebEngine
    6.6+ uses a simpler classification algorithm to decide whether
    to invert images.
  * New content.javascript.legacy_touch_events setting, with those
    now being disabled by default, following a Chromium change.
  * The colors.webpage.darkmode.threshold.text setting got renamed
    to colors.webpage.darkmode.threshold.foreground, following a
    rename in Chromium.
  * With Qt 6.6, the content.canvas_reading setting now works
    without a restart and supports URL patterns.
  * Some web pages jumping to the top when the statusbar is hidden
    or (with v3.0.x) when a prompt is hidden.
  * Compatibility with PDF.js v4
  * Added an elaborate workaround for a bug in QtWebEngine 6.6.0
    causing crashes on Google Mail/Meet/Chat, and a bug in
    QtWebEngine 6.5.0/.1/.2 causing crashes there with dark mode.
  * Made a rare crash in QtWebEngine when starting/retrying a
    download less likely to happen.
  * Graphical glitches in Google sheets and PDF.js, again. Removed
    the version restriction for the default application of
    qt.workarounds.disable_accelerated_2d_canvas as the issue was
    still evident on Qt 6.6.0.
  * The colors.webpage.darkmode.threshold.foreground setting
    (.text in older versions) now works correctly with Qt 6.4+.

Thu Oct 19 20:41:39 UTC 2023 - Michael Vetter <>

- Update to version 3.0.2:
  * Fix for crashes on Google Meet / GMail with dark mode enabled
  * Fix for right-click in devtools not working properly
  * Fix for drag & drop not working on Wayland
  * Fix for some XKB key remappings not working
  * Security fixes up to Chromium 116.0.5845.187, including
    CVE-2023-4863, a critical heap buffer overflow in WebP, for
    which "Google is aware that an exploit exists in the wild."

Thu Oct 19 20:40:58 UTC 2023 - Michael Vetter <>

- Update to version 3.0.1:
  * The "restore video" functionality of the view_in_mpv script
    works again on webengine.
  * Setting url.auto_search to dns works correctly now with Qt 6.
  * Counts passed via keypresses now have a digit limit (4300) to
    avoid exceptions due to cats sleeping on numpads. (#7834)
  * Navigating via hints to a remote URL from a file:// one works
    again. (#7847)
  * The timers related to the tab audible indicator and the auto follow
    timeout no longer accumulate connections over time. (#7888)
  * The workaround for crashes when using drag & drop on Wayland
    with Qt 6.5.2 now also works correctly when using wayland-egl
    rather than wayland as Qt platform.
  * Worked around a weird TypeError with QProxyStyle / TabBarStyle
    on certain platforms with Python 3.12.
  * Removed 1px border for the downloads view, mostly noticeable
    when it’s transparent.
  * Due to a Qt bug, cloning/undoing a tab which was not fully loaded
    caused qutebrowser to crash. This is now fixed via a workaround.
  * Graphical glitches in Google sheets and PDF.js via a new setting
    qt.workarounds.disable_accelerated_2d_canvas to disable the
    accelerated 2D canvas feature which defaults to enabled on
    affected Qt versions. (#7489)
  * The download dialog should no longer freeze when browsing to
    directories with many files. (#7925)
  * The User-Agent quirk now targets chromium 112 on
    Qt versions lower than 6.6.0 (previously it always targets
    chromium 99) (#7951)
  * Workaround a Qt issue causing jpeg files to not show up in the
    upload file picker when it was filtering for image filetypes (#7866)

Sun Aug 20 19:07:25 UTC 2023 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 3.0.0
Major Changes:
  * qutebrowser now supports Qt 6 and uses it by default.
    Qt 5.15 is used as a fallback if Qt 6 is unavailable.
    This behavior can be customized in three ways (in order of
    + Via `--qt-wrapper PyQt5` or `--qt-wrapper PyQt6`
      command-line arguments.
    + Via the `QUTE_QT_WRAPPER` environment variable, set to
      `PyQt6` or `PyQt5`.
    + For packagers wanting to provide packages specific to a Qt
      version, patch `qutebrowser/qt/` and set
  * Various commands were renamed to better group related commands:
    + `set-cmd-text` -> `cmd-set-text`
    + `repeat` -> `cmd-repeat`
    + `repeat*command` -> `cmd-repeat-last`
    + `later` -> `cmd-later`
    + `edit-command` -> `cmd-edit`
    + `run-with-count` -> `cmd-run-with-count`
    The old names continue to work for the time being, but are
    deprecated and show a warning.

  * On invalid commands/settings with a similarly spelled match,
    qutebrowser now suggests the correct name in its error
  * New `:prompt-fileselect-external` command which can be used to
    spawn an external file selector (`fileselect.folder.command`)
    from download filename prompts (bound to `<Alt+e>` by default).
  * New `qute://start` built-in start page (not set as the default
    start page yet).
  * New `content.javascript.log_message.levels` setting, allowing
    to surface JS log messages as qutebrowser messages (rather than
    only logging them). By default, errors in internal `qute:`
    pages and userscripts are shown to the user.
  * New `content.javascript.log_message.excludes` setting, which
    allows to exclude certain messages from the
    `content.javascript.log_message.levels` setting described
  * New `tabs.title.elide` setting to configure where text should
    be elided (replaced by `…`) in tab titles when space runs out.
  * New `**quiet` switch for `:back` and `:forward`, to suppress
    the error message about already being at beginning/end of
  * New `qute-1pass` userscript using the 1password commandline to
    fill passwords.
  * New features in userscripts:
    + `qutedmenu` gained new `window` and `private` options.
    + `qute-keepassxc` now supports unlock-on-demand, multiple
      account selection via rofi, and inserting TOTP-codes
    + `qute-pass` will now try looking up candidate pass entries
      based on the calling tab's verbatim netloc (hostname
      including port and username) if it can't find a match with
      an earlier candidate (FQDN, IPv4 etc).
  * New `qt.chromium.experimental_web_platform_features` setting,
    which is enabled on Qt 5 by default, to maximize compatibility
    with websites despite an aging Chromium backend.
  * New `colors.webpage.darkmode.increase_text_contrast` setting
    for Qt 6.3+
  * New `fonts.tooltip`, `` and
    `colors.tooltip.fg` settings.
  * New `log-qt-events` debug flag for `-D`
  * New `--all` flags for `:bookmark-del` and `:quickmark-del` to
    delete all quickmarks/bookmarks.

  * Python 3.8.0 or newer is now required.
  * Support for Qt/PyQt before 5.15.0 and QtWebEngine before 5.15.2
    are now dropped, as older Qt versions are end-of-life upstream
    since mid/late 2020 (5.13/5.14) and late 2021 (5.12 LTS).
  * The `--enable-webengine-inspector` flag is now dropped. It used
    to be ignored but still accepted, to allow doing a `:restart`
    from versions older than v2.0.0. Thus, switching from v1.x.x
    directly to v3.0.0 via `:restart` will not be possible.

  * The `content.javascript.can_access_clipboard` setting got
    renamed to `content.javascript.clipboard` and now understands
    three different values rather than being a boolean: `none`
    (formerly `false`), `access` (formerly `true`) and
    `access-paste` (additionally allows pasting content, needed for
    websites like Photopea or GitHub Codespaces).
  * The default `hints.selectors` now also match the `treeitem`
    ARIA roles.
  * The `:click-element` command now can also click elements based
    on its ID (`id`), a CSS selector (`css`), a position
    (`position`), or click the currently focused element
  * The `:click-element` command now can select the first found
    element via `--select-first`.
  * New `search.wrap_messages` setting, making it possible to
    disable search wrapping messages.
  * The `:session-save` command now has a new `--no-history` flag,
    to exclude tab history.
  * New widgets for `statusbar.widgets`:
    +  `clock`, showing the current time
    + `search_match`, showing the current match and total count
      when finding text on a page
  * Messages shown by qutebrowser now don't automatically get
    interpreted as rich text anymore. Thus, e.g.
    `:message-info <h1>test` now shows the given text. To show rich
    text with `:message-*` commands, use their new `--rich` flag.
    Note this is NOT a security issue, as only a small subset of
    HTML is interpreted as rich text by Qt, independently from the
  * Improved output when loading Greasemonkey scripts.
  * The "... called unimplemented GM_..." messages are now logged
    as info JS messages instead of errors.
  * For QtNetwork downloads (e.g. `:adblock-update`), various
    changes were done for how redirects work:
    * Insecure redirects (HTTPS -> HTTP) now fail the download.
    * 20 redirects are now allowed before the download fails rather
      than only 10.
    * A redirect to the same URL will now fail the download with
      too many redirects instead of being ignored.
  * When a download fails in a way it'd leave an empty file around,
    the empty file is now deleted.
  * With Qt 6, setting `content.headers.referer` to `always` will
    act as if it was set to `same*domain`. The documentation is now
    updated to point that out.
  * With QtWebEngine 5.15.5+, the load finished workaround was
    dropped, which should make certain operations happen when the
    page has started loading rather when it fully finished.
  * When `QUTE_QTWEBENGINE_VERSION_OVERRIDE` is set, it now always
    wins, no matter how the version would otherwise have been
    determined. Note setting this value can break things (if set to
    a wrong value), and usually isn't needed.
  * When qutebrowser is run with an older QtWebEngine version as on
    the previous launch, it now prints an error before starting
    (which causes the underlying Chromium to remove all browsing
    data such as cookies).
  * The keys "<To Do List>" and "<Contrast adjust>" are now named
    "<To-do list>" and "<Adjust contrast>", respectively.
  * `:config*diff` now has an `--include-hidden` flag, which also
    shows internally-set settings.
  * Improved error messages when `:spawn` can't find an executable.
  * When a process fails, the error message now suggests using
    `:process PID` with the correct PID (rather than always showing
    the latest process, which might not be the failing one)
  * When a process got killed with `SIGTERM`, no error message is
    now displayed anymore (unless started with `:spawn --verbose`).
  * When a process got killed by a signal, the signal name is now
    displayed in the message.
  * The `js-string-replaceall` quirk is now removed from the
    default `content.site_specific_quirks.skip`, so that
    `String.replaceAll` is now polyfilled on QtWebEngine < 5.15.3,
    hopefully improving website compaitibility.
  * Hints are now displayed for elements setting an `aria-haspopup`
  * qutebrowser now uses SPDX license identiiers in its files.
    Full support for the REUSE specification (license provided in a
    machine-readable way for every single file) is not done yet,
    but planned for a future release.

  * When the devtools are clicked but
    `input.insert_mode.auto_enter` is set to `false`, insert mode
    now isn't entered anymore.
  * The search wrapping messages are now correctly displayed in
    (hopefully) all cases with QtWebEngine.
  * When a message with the same text as a currently already
    displayed one gets shown, qutebrowser used to only show one
    message. This is now only done when the two messages are
    completely equivalent (text, level, etc.) instead of doing so
    when only the text matches.
  * The `progress` and `backforward` statusbar widgets now stay
    removed if you choose to remove them. Previously they would
    appear again on navigation.
  * Rare crash when running userscripts with crashed renderer
  * Multiple rare crashes when quitting qutebrowser.
  * ResourceWarning when using `:restart`.
  * Crash when shutting down before fully initialized.
  * Crash with some notification servers when the server is
  * Crash when using QtWebKit with PAC and the file has an invalid
  * Crash with the "tiramisu" notification server.
  * Crash when the "herbe" notification presenter doesn't start
  * Crash when no notification server is installed/available.
  * Warning with recent versions of the "deadd"
    (aka "linux notification center") notification server.
  * Crash when using `:print --pdf` with a directory where its
    parent directory did not exist.
  * The `PyQt{5,6}.sip` version is now shown correctly in the
    `:version`/`--version` output. Previously that showed the
    version from the standalone `sip` module which was only set
    for PyQt5.
  * When a `` calls `.redirect()` via a request
    interceptor (which is unsupported) and supplies an invalid
    redirect target URL, an exception is now raised for the
    `.redirect()` call instead of later inside qutebrowser.
  * Crash when loading invalid history items from a session file.

Sun May 14 09:09:07 UTC 2023 - Dirk Müller <>

- update to 2.5.4:
  * Support SQLite with DQS (double quoted string) compile time
    option turned off.

Tue Feb 21 09:55:22 UTC 2023 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.5.3
  * New array_at quirk, polyfilling the method, which is
    needed by various websites, but only natively available with
    Qt 6.2.
  * Crash when the adblock filter file can't be read.
  * Inconsistent behavior when using :config-{dict,list}-* commands
    with an invalid value. Before the fix, using the same command
    again would complain that the value was already present,
    despite the error and the value not being actually changed.
  * Incomplete error handling when mutating a dict/list in and setting an invalid value. Before the fix, this
    would result in either a message in the terminal rather than
    GUI (startup), or in a crash (:config-source).
  * Wrong type handling when using :config-{dict,list}-* commands
    with a config option with non-string values. The only affected
    option is bindings.commands, which is probably rarely used with
    those commands.
  * The readability userscript now correctly passes the source URL
    to Breadability, to make relative links work.
  * Update to use the main branch, fixing a 404 error.
  * Crash with some notification servers when the server did quit.
  * Minor documentation fixes

Thu Jul  7 15:25:44 UTC 2022 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.5.2
  * The notification fixes in v2.5.1 caused new notification
    crashes (probably more common than the ones being fixed...).
    Those are now fixed, along with a (rather involved) test case
    to prevent similar issues in the future.
  * When a text was not found on a page, the associated message
    would be shown as rich text (e.g. after /<h1>). With this
    release, this is fixed for search messages, while the 3.0.0
    release will change the default for all messages to be
    plain-text. Note this is NOT a security issue, as only a small
    subset of HTML is interpreted as rich text by Qt, independently
    from the website.
  * When a Greasemonkey script couldn't be loaded (e.g. due to an
    unreadable file), qutebrowser would crash. It now shows an
    error instead.
  * Ever since the v1.2.0 release in 2018, the
    content.default_encoding setting was not applied on start
    properly (only when it was changed afterwards).
    This is now fixed.

Wed Jun 15 13:47:47 UTC 2022 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.5.1
  * The qute-pass userscript is marked as executable again.
  * The MathML workaround for darkmode (e.g. black on black
    Wikipedia formula) now also works for display (rather than
    inline) math.
  * The content.proxy setting can now correctly be set to arbitrary
    values via the qute://settings page again.
  * Fixed a rare possible crash with invalid Content-Disposition
  * Fixes for various notification-related crashes:
    + With the tiramisu notification server (due to invalid
      behavior of the server, now a non-fatal error)
    + With the budgie notification server when closing a
      notification (due to invalid behavior of the server,
      now worked around)
    + When a server exits with an unsuccessful exit status
      (now a non-fatal error)
    + When a server couldn't be started successfully
      (now a non-fatal error)
    + With the herbe notification presenter, when the website tries
      to close the notification after the user accepting
      (right-clicking) it.
  * Fixes in userscripts:
    + The qute-bitwarden userscript now correctly searches for
      entries for sites on a subdomain of an unrecognized TLD.
      subdomain names. Previously would have searched
      in bitwarden for my.sitelocal, losing the rightmost dot.

Tue Apr  5 23:54:02 UTC 2022 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.5.0
  * v2.5.x will be the last release of qutebrowser 2. For the
    upcoming 3.0.0 release, it's planned to drop support for
    various legacy platforms and libraries which are unsupported
    upstream, such as:
    + Qt before 5.15 LTS (plus adding support for Qt 6.2+)
    + Python 3.6
    + The QtWebKit backend
    + macOS 10.14 (via Homebrew)
    + 32-bit Windows (via Qt)
    + Windows 8 (via Qt)
    + Windows 10 before 1809 (via Qt)
    + Possibly other more minor dependency changes
  * The :rl-unix-word-rubout command (<Ctrl-W> in command/prompt
    modes) has been deprecated. Use :rl-rubout " " instead.
  * The :rl-unix-filename-rubout command has been deprecated.
    Use either :rl-rubout "/ " (classic readline behavior) or
    :rl-filename-rubout (using OS path separator and ignoring
    spaces) instead.
  * Improved message if a spawned process wasn't found and a
    Flatpak container is in use.
  * The :tab-move command now takes start and end as index to move
    a tab to the first/last position.
  * Tests now automatically pick the backend (QtWebKit/QtWebEngine)
    based on what's available. The QUTE_BDD_WEBENGINE environment
    variable and --qute-bdd-webengine argument got replaced by
    QUTE_TESTS_BACKEND and --qute-backend respectively, which can
    be set to either webengine or webkit.
  * Using :tab-give or :tab-take on the last tab in a window now
    always closes that window, no matter what tabs.last_close is
    set to.
  * Redesigned qute://settings (:set) page with buttons for options
    with fixed values.
  * The default hint.selectors now match more ARIA roles (tab,
    checkbox, menuitem, menuitemcheckbox and menuitemradio).
  * Using e.g. :bind --mode=passthrough now scrolls to the
    passthrough section on the qute://bindings page.
  * Clicking on a notification now tries to focus the tab where the
    notification is coming from. Note this might not work properly
    if there is more than one tab from the same host open.
  * Improvements to userscripts:
    + qute-bitwarden understands a new
      --password-prompt-invocation, which can be used to specify a
      tool other than rofi to ask for a password.
    + cast now uses yt-dlp if available (falling back to youtube-dl
      if not). It also lets users override the tool to use via a
      QUTE_CAST_YTDL_PROGRAM environment variable.
    + qute-pass now understands a new --prefix argument if used in
      gopass mode, which gets passed as subfolder prefix to gopass.
    + open_download now supports Flatpak by using its XDG Desktop
    + open_download now waits for the exit status of xdg-open,
      causing qutebrowser to report any issues with it.
    + The content.headers.custom setting now accepts empty strings
      as values, resulting in an empty header being sent.
  * Renamed settings:
    + qt.low_end_device_mode -> qt.chromium.low_end_device_mode
    + qt.process_model -> qt.chromium.process_model
  * System-wide userscripts are now discovered from the correct
    location when running via Flatpak (/app/share rather than
  * Filename prompts now don't display a .. entry in the list of
    files anymore. To get back to the parent directory, either type
    ../ manually, or use the new :rl-filename-rubout command,
    bound to <Ctrl-Shift-W> by default.
  * New input.match_counts option which allows to turn off count
    matching for more emacs-like bindings.
  * New {relative_index} field for tabs.title.format
    (and .pinned_format) which shows relative tab numbers.
  * New input.mode_override option which allows overriding the
    current mode based on the new URL when navigating or switching
  * New qt.chromium.sandboxing setting which allows to disable
    Chromium's sandboxing (mainly intended for development and
  * New QUTE_TAB_INDEX variable for userscripts, containing the
    index of the current tab.
  * New editor.remove_file setting which can be set to False to
    keep all temporary editor files after closing the external
  * New :rl-rubout command replacing :rl-unix-word-rubout
    (and optionally :rl-unix-filename-rubout), taking a delimiter
    as argument.
  * New :rl-filename-rubout command, using the OS path separator
    and ignoring spaces. The command also gets shown in the
    suggested commands for a download filename prompt now.
  * When search.incremental is disabled, searching using /text
    followed by a backwards search via ?text (or vice-versa) now
    correctly changes the search direction.
  * Elements getting a hint due to a tabindex now are skipped if
    it's set to -1, reducing some false-positives.
  * The audible indicator ([A]) now uses a 2s cooldown when the
    audio goes silent, equivalent with the behavior of older
    QtWebEngine versions.
  * With confirm_quit set to downloads, the confirmation dialog is
    now only shown when closing the last window (rather than
    closing any window, which would continue running that window's
    downloads). Unfortunately, more issues with confirm_quit and
    multiple windows remain.
  * Crash when a previous crash-log file contains non-ASCII
    characters (which should never happen unless it was edited
  * Due to changes in Debian, an old workaround (for broken
    QtWebEngine patching on Debian) caused the inferior qutebrowser
    error page to be displayed, when Chromium's would have worked
    fine. The workaround was now dropped.
  * Crash when using <Ctrl-D> (:completion-item-del) in the
    :tab-focus list, rather than :tab-select.
  * Work around a Qt issue causing :spawn to run executables from
    the current directory if no system-wide executable was found.
    The underlying Qt bug is tracked as CVE-2022-25255, though the
    impact with typical qutebrowser usage is low: Normally,
    qutebrowser is run from a fixed location (usually the users
    home directory), and :spawn is not typically used with
    executables that don't exist. The main security impact of this
    bug is in tools like text editors, which are often executed in
    untrusted directories and might attempt to run auxiliary tools
  * When :rl-rubout or :rl-filename-rubout
    (formerly :rl-unix-word-rubout and :rl-unix-filename-rubout)
    were used on a string not starting with the given delimiter,
    they failed to delete the first character, which is now fixed.
  * Fixes in userscripts:
    + ripbang now works again (it got blocked due to a missing user
      agent and used outdated qutebrowser commands before)
    + keepassxc now has a properly working --insecure flag
  * Speculative fix for a qutebrowser crash when the notification
    daemon crashes while showing the notification.
  * Fix crash when using :screenshot with an invalid --rect
  * Added a site-specific quirk to make cookie dialogs on
    StackExchange pages (such as Stack Overflow) work on Qt 5.12.

Thu Oct 21 19:58:09 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.4.0
  * New content.blocking.hosts.block_subdomains setting which can
    be used to disable the subdomain blocking for the hosts-based
    adblocker introduced in v2.3.0.
  * New downloads.prevent_mixed_content setting to prevent insecure
    mixed-content downloads (true by default).
  * New --private flag for :tab-clone, which clones a tab into a
    new private window, mirroring the same flags for :open and
  * Speculative fix for a crash when closing qutebrowser while a
    systray notification is shown.

- Disable test suite. This is too non-deterministic and random
  BDD tests will fail most of the time even though the program
  behaves correctly in practice.

Tue Aug  3 00:07:38 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.3.1
  * Updated the workaround for Google Account log in claiming that
    this browser isn't secure. For an equivalent workaround on
    older versions, run: :set -u*
    content.headers.user_agent "Mozilla/5.0 ({os_info}; rv:90.0)
    Gecko/20100101 Firefox/90.0"
  * Corrupt cache file exceptions with adblock 0.5.0+ are now
    handled properly.
  * Crash when entering unicode surrogates into the filename
  * UnboundLocalError in qute-keepass when the database couldn't be

Mon Jun 28 15:54:56 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.3.0
  * New content.prefers_reduced_motion setting to request websites
    to reduce non-essential motion/animations.
  * New colors.prompts.selected.fg setting to customize the text
    color for selected items in filename prompts.
  * The hosts-based adblocker (using content.blocking.hosts.lists)
    now also blocks all requests to any subdomains of blocked
  * The fonts.web.* settings now support URL patterns.
  * The :greasemonkey-reload command now shows a list of loaded
    scripts and has a new --quiet switch to suppress that message.
  * When launching a userscript via hints, a new QUTE_CURRENT_URL
    environment variable now points to the current page (rather
    than the URL of the selected element, where QUTE_URL points
  * Crash when two Greasemonkey scripts have the same name
    (usually happening because the same file is in both the data
    and the config directory).

Thu Jun  3 12:37:54 UTC 2021 - Guillaume GARDET <>

- Update to version 2.2.3
  * Logging into Google accounts or sharing the camera on macOS 10.14+ crashed,
    which is now fixed.
  *The Windows installer now correctly aborts the installation on Windows 7
    (rather than attempting an install which won't work, since Windows 7 is
    unsupported since the v2.0.0 release).
  * Using --json-logging without --debug caused qutebrowser to crash since the
    v1.13.0 release. It now works correctly again.
  * Mixing Qt 5.14+ with QtWebEngine 5.12 caused a crash related to qutebrowser's
    notification support, which is now fixed.
  * The documentation now points to the new IRC channels on
    instead of the defunct Freenode channels (due to a hostile takeover by
    Freenode staff).
  * Setting content.headers.user_agent or .accept_language to a value
    containing non-ascii characters was permitted by qutebrowser, but resulted in
a crash when loading a page. Such values are now rejected properly.
  * When quitting qutebrowser on the qute://settings page, a crash could happen, which is now fixed.
  * When :edit-text is used, but the existing text in the input isn't
    representable in the configured encoding (editor.encoding), qutebrowser would
    crash. It now shows a proper error instead.
  * The testsuite should now work properly on aarch64.
  * When QtWebEngine is in a "stuck" state while :selection-follow was used,
    this could cause a crash in qutebrowser. This is now fixed (speculatively, due
    to lack of a reproducer).
  * When the brave adblock data (adblock-cache.dat) got corrupted, qutebrowser
    would crash when trying to load it. It now displays an error instead.
    Combining /S (silent) and /allusers when uninstalling via the Windows
    installer now works properly.

Thu May 20 18:58:16 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.2.2
  * When awesomewm's "naughty" notification daemon was used with a
    development version of AwesomeWM and an unknown version number,
    qutebrowser would crash when trying to parse the version
    string. This is now fixed.
  * Due to a bug with QtWebEngine 5.15.4, old Service Worker data
    could cause renderer process crashes. This is now worked around
    by qutebrowser.
  * When an (broken) binding to set-cmd-text without any argument
    existed, using : would crash, which is now fixed.
  * New site-specific quirk (again) working around not being able
    to type accented/composed characters on Google Docs.
  * When running with python -OO (which is not recommended), a
    notification being shown would result in a crash, which is now

Sat May  8 15:49:14 UTC 2021 - Ferdinand Thiessen <>

- Update to version 2.2.1
  * When an error occurs in a notification presenter, qutebrowser
    now shows that error in the statusbar instead of just logging it
  * New site-specific-quirk for Discord logging users out when using
    vertical tabs
  * Certain errors from notification daemons are now displayed
    as non-fatal errors instead of qutebrowser crashing:
    * With the legacy GNOME Flashback notification daemon, when
      more than 20 notifications are currently shown.
    * With the KDE Plasma notification daemon, when the same
      notification is shown twice.
  * Running :spawn -u -o broke in v2.2.0 and now works properly
  * Fixes in userscripts:
    * The qute-bitwarden userscript now still consumes returned
      data if the Bitwarden CLI showed a warning but exited with
      a successful exit code.
    * The qute-pass userscript now doesn't try to match a username
      with --password-only, and error messages with invalid
      patterns are improved.
    * The qute-pass userscript now avoids running pass twice
      when --otp-only is used.
- SPEC file: Drop parts related to outdated openSUSE versions

Mon Apr 19 22:31:55 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Enable test suite
- Update to version 2.2.0
  * Running qutebrowser with Qt 5.12.0 is now unsupported and logs
    a warning. It should still work - however, a workaround for
    issues with the Nvidia graphic driver was dropped.
    Newer Qt 5.12.x versions are still fully supported.
  * The --force argument for :tab-only is deprecated, use --pinned
    close instead.
  * Using :tab-focus without an argument or count is now
    deprecated, use :tab-next instead.

  * New dependency on the QtDBus module. If this requirement is an
    issue for you or your distribution, please open an issue!
    Note that a DBus connection at runtime is still optional.
  * New input.media_keys setting which can be used to disable
    Chromium's handling of media keys.
  * New :process command (and associated qute://process pages)
    which can be used to view and terminate/kill external processes
    spawned by qutebrowser.
  * New content.site_specific_quirks.skip setting which can be used
    to disable individual site-specific quirks.
  * New --pinned argument for :tab-only, which replaces --force
    (with --pinned close), but also can take --pinned keep to keep
    pinned tabs without prompting.
  * New fileselect.folder.command which can be used with
    fileselect.handler = external to customize the command to use
    to upload directories (<input type="file" webkitdirectory />
    elements, which are non-standard but in wide use).
  * New content.notifications.presenter setting with various new
    ways to show web notifications:
    + auto (default): Automatically detect the best available
    + qt: Use Qt's built-in mechanism (like before this release)
    + libnotify: Use a libnotify-compatible notification server
      (i.e. native notifications on Linux)
    + systray: Use a systray icon (very similar to qt but without
      some of its drawbacks)
    + messages: Use qutebrowser messages
    + herbe: Use herbe
  * New content.notifications.show_origin setting, which can be
    used to decide for which notifications to show the origin
    (the URL the notification was sent from).

  * The content.ssl_strict setting got renamed to
    content.tls.certificate_errors, with new values:
    + ask: Prompt on overridable certificate errors
      (ssl_strict = 'ask')
    + ask-block-thirdparty: See below
    + block: Block the page load (ssl_strict = True)
    + load-insecurely: Load the page despite the error
      (ssl_strict = False)
  * The new content.tls.certificate_errors setting now also
    understands the value ask-block-thirdparty, which asks for page
    loads but automatically blocks resource loads on TLS errors.
    This behavior is consistent with what other browsers do.
  * The prompt text shown on certificate errors has been improved
    to make it clearer what kind of error occurred exactly.
  * The content.site_specific_quirks setting got renamed to
  * The content.notifications option got renamed to
  * The completion now also shows bindings starting with
    set-cmd-text in its third column, such as o for :open.
  * When :spawn is used with the -m / --output-messages flag,
    the output now appears live, while the process is running.
  * When a shown message replaces an existing related one (e.g. for
    zoom levels), the replacing now also works even if a different
    message was shown in between.
  * The .redirect(...) method on interceptors now supports an
    ignore_unsupported=True argument which supresses exceptions if
    a request could not be redirected. Note, however, that it is
    still not public API.
  * When the --config-py argument is used, no warning about a
    missing config.load_autoconfig is shown anymore, as the
    argument is typically used for temporarily testing a config.
  * The internal _autosave session used for crash recovery is now
    only saved once per minute, since saving it for every page load
    is a noticable performance issue.
  * The readability-js userscript now displays a small header with
    page information.
  * When an external file selector is used, some additional
    validation is done on the picked files now, so that errors are
    shown if e.g. a directory is selected when a file was expected.
  * The default binding for T (:tab-focus) got changed so that it
    fills the command line with :tab-focus if used without a count
    (instead of being equivalent to :tab-next in that case).
  * The :config-unset command now understands the --pattern (-u)
    flag to unset options customized for a given URL pattern
    (such as after answering a prompt with "always"/"never").
  * The :config-unset command now shows an error when used on an
    option which is valid, but was never customized.
  * The statusbar.widgets setting now understands text:... entries
    which allows adding a hard-coded text to the statusbar.
  * The polyfill for String.replaceAll (required for Nextcloud
    Calendar < 2.2.0 with QtWebEngine < 5.15.3) is now disabled by
    default, as it's not fully compliant to the ECMAScript spec and
    might cause issues on other websites. If you still need it
    (e.g. if you're still on an old Nextcloud Calendar version),
    remove js-string-replaceall from

  * When an editor exits with a != 0 exit status, the temporary
    editor file is now persisted. This already was the case when
    the editor crashed.
  * When a nonexistent file gets passed to --config-py, qutebrowser
    now complains instead of silently not loading it.
  * With some (rare) setups, opening the report dialog or using a
    PAC proxy with QtWebKit could result in qutebrowser hanging due
    to a PyQt bug. There's now a workaround which prevents the hang
  * Certain version number formats in /etc/os-release caused
    qutebrowser to crash. Those are now handled correctly.

  * The qute://spawn-output page used by :spawn -o is now removed,
    as it's replaced by the new qute://process pages.

- Changes in 2.1.1
  * Site-specific quirk for, which shows a
    "Socket Error" with qutebrowser's default Accept-Language
    header. The workaround is equivalent to doing
    :set -u content.headers.accept_language "".

  * Clicking the 'x' in the devtools window to hide it now also
    leaves insert mode.

  * The workaround for black on (almost) black formula images in
    dark mode now also works with Qt 5.12 and 5.13.
  * When the metainfo in the completion database doesn't have the
    expected structure, qutebrowser now tries to gracefully recover
    from the situation instead of crashing.
  * When qutebrowser displays an error during initialization,
    opening a second instance would lead to a crash. Instead,
    qutebrowser now ignores the attempt to open a new page as long
    as it's not fully initialized yet.
  * When the Brave adblock cache folder was unreadable,
    qutebrowser crashed. It now displays an error instead.
  * Fixes in the qute-pass userscript for gopass:
    + Generating OTP tokens now works correctly.
    + Storing the username as part of the secret broke in v2.0.0
      and now works again.
  * When using bindings.key_mappings to map a key to multiple other
    keys, qutebrowser would crash. This is now handled correctly -
    however, note that it's usually better to map keys to commands
  * When a minimized window is selected via :tab-select, it's now
    un-minimized properly.
  * When a format string in the config (e.g. tabs.title_format)
    used a value like {} (instead of
    {current_url:host}), qutebrowser would crash. It now correctly
    reports an invalid config value instead.
  * In rare circumstances, sending URLs/commands to existing
    instances would result in a crash, which is now fixed.
  * Running the testsuite should now fully work without internet
    access again. The --asciidoc script for broke with
    v1.14.0. It now works correctly again.

Fri Mar 12 11:12:54 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.1.0
  * The following command aliases were deprecated in v2.0.0 and are
    now removed:
    + run-macro -> macro-run
    + record-macro -> macro-record
    + buffer -> tab-select
    + open-editor -> edit-text
    + toggle-selection -> selection-toggle
    + drop-selection -> selection-drop
    + reverse-selection -> selection-reverse
    + follow-selected -> selection-follow
    + follow-hint -> hint-follow
    + enter-mode -> mode-enter
    + leave-mode -> mode-leave

  * New :screenshot command which can be used to screenshot the
    visible part of the page.
  * New qute-keepassxc userscript integrating with the KeePassXC
    browser API.

  * Initial support for QtWebEngine 5.15.3 and PyQt 5.15.3/.4
  * The colors.webpage.prefers_color_scheme_dark setting got
    renamed to colors.webpage.preferred_color_scheme and now takes
    the values auto, light and dark (instead of being True for dark
    and False for auto). Note that the light value is only
    supported with Qt 5.15.2+, falling back to the same behavior as
    auto on older versions.
  * On Linux, qutebrowser now tries harder to find details about
    the installed QtWebEngine version by inspecting the QtWebEngine
    binary. This should reduce issues with dark mode (and some
    workarounds) not working when using differing versions of
    QtWebEngine/PyQtWebEngine/Qt. This change also prepares
    qutebrowser for QtWebEngine 5.15.3, which will get released
    without an updated Qt.
  * When doing :hint links yank --rapid, the messages shown now
    replace each other, thus being less noisy.
  * Newlines in JavaScript messages (confirm, prompt and alert) are
    now preserved.
  * Messages in prompts are now word-wrapped rather than displaying
    them in one long line.
  * If a command starts with space (e.g. : open ..., it's now not
    saved to command history anymore (similar to how some shells
  * When a tab is pinned, running :open will now open a new tab
    instead of displaying an error.
  * The fileselect.*.command settings now support file selectors
    writing the selected paths to stdout, which is used if no {}
    placeholder is contained in the configured command.
  * The --debug-flag argument now understands a new
    log-sensitive-keys value which logs all keypresses (including
    those in insert/passthrough/prompt/... mode) for debugging.
  * The readability and readability-js userscripts now add a
    qute-readability CSS class to the page, so that it can be
    styled easily via a user stylesheet.

  * With QtWebEngine 5.15.3 and some locales, Chromium can't start
    its subprocesses. As a result, qutebrowser only shows a blank
    page and logs "Network service crashed, restarting service.".
    This release adds a qt.workarounds.locale setting working
    around the issue. It is disabled by default since distributions
    shipping 5.15.3 will probably have a proper patch for it
    backported very soon.
  * The colors.webpage.preferred_color_scheme and
    colors.webpage.darkmode.* settings now work correctly with
    QtWebEngine 5.15.3.
  * When dark mode settings were set, existing blink-features
    arguments in qt.args (or --qt-flag) were overridden. They are
    now combined properly. On QtWebEngine 5.15.2, auto detection
    for the prefers-color-scheme media query is broken and always
    returns no-preference, which was removed from the CSS WG
    Specification. This release contains a workaround to always
    return light instead (as per the spec).
  * When an external file selector deletes the temporary file
    (like nnn does when quitting the terminal), qutebrowser would
    crash. It now displays an error instead. The same applies if
    the temporary file is unreadable for any other reason.
  * The quirk added for a missing String.replaceAll did not handle
    special regexp characters correctly, thus breaking some sites.
    It now handles them properly.
  * The "try again" button on error pages now works correctly with
    JavaScript disabled.
  * If a GreaseMonkey script doesn't have a "@run-at" comment,
    qutebrowser accidentally treated that as
    "@run-at document-idle". However, other GreaseMonkey
    implementations default to "@run-at document-end" instead,
    which is what qutebrowser now does, too.
  * The script didn't work correctly after
    qutebrowser v2.0.0 and resulted in a history database
    qutebrowser couldn't read properly. It now works properly
  * With certain QtWebEngine versions (5.15.0 based on Chromium 80
    and 5.15.3 based on Chromium 87), Chromium's dark mode doesn't
    invert certain SVG images, even with
    colors.wegpage.darkmode.policy.images set to smart.
    Most notably, this causes formulae on Wikipedia to display
    black on (almost) black. If content.site_specific_quirks is
    enabled, qutebrowser now injects some CSS as a workaround,
    which inverts all math formula images on Wikipedia
    (and potentially other sites, if they use the same CSS class).
  * When a hint label text started with an apostrophe, it would
    show an escaped text until the hints first character has been
    pressed. It now shows up correctly.

Thu Feb  4 18:07:42 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.0.2
  * When right-clicking an empty part of the downloads bar,
    qutebrowser v2.0.x would crash. This is now fixed.
  * Setting to false only worked properly
    when this was done after qutebrowser was already started due to
    a regression in v2.0.0. It now works as expected again.
  * The changelog for v2.0.0 claimed that hints.leave_on_load was
    set to true by default. However, the
    input.insert_mode.leave_on_load setting was instead set to
    true accidentally. This is now fixed by actually setting
    hints.leave_on_load to true, and reversing the change to
    input.insert_mode.leave_on_load so it is set to false by
    default again.
  * Site-specific quirk JavaScript files were loaded lazily rather
    than preloaded at the start of qutebrowser, causing a crash
    when e.g. switching between versions while qutebrowser is open.
    Now they are preloaded at the start of qutebrowser again.
  * The link to the keybinding cheatsheet on the internal :help
    page wasn't displayed correctly. This is now fixed.
  * When the completion rebuilding process was interrupted,
    qutebrowser did not detect this condition on the next start,
    thus resulting in a completion with inconsistent data. This is
    now fixed, with another rebuild being forced with this update,
    to ensure the data is consistent for all users.
  * In certain scenarios, qutebrowser v2.0.x warned about
    config.load_autoconfig(...) being missing when loading a
    secondary config (e.g. via config.source(...)). It now only
    shows those warnings for the main file.
  * The --enable-webengine-inspector flag is now accepted again,
    however it's unused and undocumented. It purely exists to make
    it possible to use :restart between pre-v2.0.x and v2.0.2+
  * When hints.dictionary pointed to a file not encoded as UTF-8,
    this resulted in a crash (also in versions before v2.0.0).
    It now properly displays an error instead.
  * When running qutebrowser with a single empty commandline
    argument, such as done by, this would
    result in a partially initialized window. Interacting with that
    window results in a crash (also in versions before v2.0.0).
    Instead, the startpage is now shown properly.

Sun Jan 31 23:14:05 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.0.1
* When the adblocking method was switched using :set, and the
  adblock dependency was unavailable when qutebrowser started
  (but was installed while qutebrowser was open), this resulted
  in a crash. Now a warning prompting for a restart of qutebrowser
  is shown instead.

* The format_json userscript now uses sh instead of bash again.
* The add-nextcloud-bookmarks, add-nextcloud-cookbook, readability
  and ripbang userscripts now use a python3 rather than plain
  python shebang.
* When QTWEBENGINE_CHROMIUM_FLAGS is set in the environment, this
  causes flag handling (including workarounds for QtWebEngine
  crashes) inside qutebrowser to break. This will be handled
  properly in a future version, but this release now shows a
  warning on standard output if this is the case.
* The config completion for fileselect.*.command now also includes
  the "nnn" terminal file manager.

Thu Jan 28 09:01:57 UTC 2021 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 2.0.0
If the Python adblock library is available, it is now used to
integrate Brave's Rust adblocker library for improved adblocking
based on ABP-like filter lists (such as EasyList).
If it is unavailable, qutebrowser falls back to host-blocking,
i.e. the same blocking technique it used before this release.
As part of this, various settings got renamed, see "Changed"
Note: If the adblock dependency is available, qutebrowser will
ignore custom host blocking via the blocked-hosts config file or
file:/// URLs supplied as host blocking lists. You will need to
either migrate those to ABP-like lists, or set
content.blocking.method to "both".
Note for openSUSE users: The adblock library has not been packaged
yet due to the difficulty of packaging its Rust dependencies.

* The --enable-webengine-inspector flag (which was only needed for
  Qt 5.10 and below) is now dropped. With Qt 5.11 and newer, the
  inspector/devtools are enabled unconditionally.
* Support for moving qutebrowser data from versions before v1.0.0
  has been removed.
* The --old flag for :config-diff has been removed. It used to show
  customized options for the old pre-v1.0 config files (in order to
  aid migration to v1.0).
* The :inspector command which was deprecated in v1.13.0 (in favor
  of :devtools) is now removed.

* Several commands have been renamed for consistency and/or easier
  grouping of related commands. Their old names are still
  available, but deprecated and will be removed in qutebrowser
  + run-macro -> macro-run
  + record-macro -> macro-record
  + buffer -> tab-select
  + open-editor -> edit-text
  + toggle-selection -> selection-toggle
  + drop-selection -> selection-drop
  + reverse-selection -> selection-reverse
  + follow-selected -> selection-follow
  + follow-hint -> hint-follow
  + enter-mode -> mode-enter
  + leave-mode -> mode-leave

* New settings for the ABP-based adblocker:
  + content.blocking.method to decide which blocker(s) should be
  + content.blocking.adblock.lists to configure ABP-like lists to
* New qt.environ setting which makes it easier to set/unset
  environment variables for qutebrowser.
* New settings to use an external file picker (such as ranger or
  + fileselect.handler (default or external)
  + fileselect.multiple_files.command
  + fileselect.single_file.command
* When QtWebEngine has been updated but PyQtWebEngine hasn't yet,
  the dark mode settings might stop working. As a (currently
  undocumented) escape hatch, this version adds a
  QUTE_DARKMODE_VARIANT=qt_515_2 environment variable which can be
  set to get the correct behavior in (transitive) situations like
* New --desktop-file-name commandline argument, which can be used
  to customize the desktop filename passed to Qt (which is used to
  set the app_id on Wayland).
* The :open completion now also completes local file paths and
  file:// URLs, via a new filesystem entry in
  completion.open_categories. Also, a new completion.favorite_paths
  setting was added which can be used to add paths to show when
  :open is used without any input.
* New QUTE_VERSION variable for userscripts, which can be used to
  read qutebrowser's version.
* New "Copy URL" entry in the context menu for downloads.
* New :bookmark-list command which lists all bookmarks/quickmarks.
  The corresponding qute://bookmarks URL already existed since
  v0.8.0, but it was never exposed as a command.
* New qt.workarounds.remove_service_workers setting which can be
  used to remove the "Service Workers" directory on every start.
  Usage of this option is generally discouraged, except in
  situations where the underlying QtWebEngine bug is a known cause
  for crashes.
* Changelogs are now shown after qutebrowser was upgraded.
  By default, the changelog is only shown after minor upgrades
  (feature releases) but not patch releases. This can be adjusted
  (or disabled entirely) via a new changelog_after_upgrade setting.
* New userscripts:
  + kodi to play videos in Kodi
  + qr to generate a QR code of the current URL
  + add-nextcloud-bookmarks to create bookmarks in Nextcloud's
    Bookmarks app
  + add-nextcloud-cookbook to add recipes to Nextcloud's Cookbook

* files now are required to have either
  config.load_autoconfig(False) (don't load autoconfig.yml) or
  config.load_autoconfig() (do load autoconfig.yml) in them.
* Various host-blocking settings have been renamed to accomodate
  the new ABP-like adblocker:
  + content.host_blocking.enabled -> content.blocking.enabled
    (controlling both blockers)
  + content.host_blocking.whitelist -> content.blocking.whitelist
    (controlling both blockers)
  + content.host_blocking.lists -> content.blocking.hosts.lists
* Changes to default settings:
  + tabs.background is now true by default, so that new tabs get
    opened in the background.
  + input.partial_timeout is now set to 0 by default, so that
    partially typed key strings are never cleared.
  + hints.leave_on_load is now false by default, so that hint mode
    doesn't get left when a page finishes loading. This can lead to
    stale hints persisting in rare circumstances, but is better
    than leaving hint mode when the user entered it before loading
    was completed.
  + The default for tabs.width (tab bar width if vertical) is now
    15% of the window width rather than 20%.
  + The default bindings for moving tabs
    (tab-move - and tab-move +) were changed from gl and gr to gK
    and gJ, to be consistent with the tab switching bindings.
  + The text color for warning messages is now black instead of
    white, for increased contrast and thus readability.
  + The default timeout for messages is now raised from 2s to 3s.
* On the first start, the history completion database is
  regenerated to remove a few problematic entries (such as long
  qute://pdfjs URLs). This might take a couple of minutes, but is
  a one-time operation. This should result in a performance
  improvement for the completion for affected users.
* qutebrowser now shows an error if its history database version is
  newer than expected. This currently should never happen, but
  allows for potentially backwards-incompatible changes in future
* At least Python 3.6.1 is now required to run qutebrowser, support
  for Python 3.5 (and 3.6.0) is dropped. Note that Python 3.5 is
  no longer supported upstream since September 2020.
* At least Qt/PyQt 5.12 is now required to run qutebrowser, support
  for 5.7 to 5.11 (inclusive) is dropped.
* New optional dependency on the Python adblock library (see above
  for details).
* The (formerly optional) cssutils dependency is now removed.
  It was only needed for improved behavior in corner cases when
  using :download --mhtml with the (non-default) QtWebKit backend,
  and as such it's unlikely anyone is still relying on it.
  The cssutils project is also dead upstream, with its repository
  being gone after Bitbucket removed Mercurial support.
* The (formerly required) pygments dependency is now optional.
  It is only used when using :view-source with QtWebKit, or when
  forcing it via :view-source --pygments on QtWebEngine. If it is
  unavailable, an unhighlighted fallback version of the page's
  source is shown.
* The former runtime dependency on the pkg_resources module (part
  of the setuptools project) got dropped. Note that setuptools is
  still required to run
* A new dependency on the importlib_resources module got introduced
  for Python versions up to and including 3.8. Note that the stdlib
  importlib.resources module for Python 3.7 and 3.8 is missing the
  needed APIs, thus requiring the backports for those versions as
* The former dependency on the attrs/attr package is now dropped in
  favour of dataclasses in the Python standard library. On Python
  3.6, a new dependency on the dataclasses backport is now
* The former dependency on the pypeg2 package is now dropped. This
  might cause some changes for certain corner-cases for suggested
  filenames when downloading files with the QtWebKit backend.
* The colors.webpage.darkmode.* settings are now also supported
  with older Qt versions (Qt 5.12 and 5.13) rather than just with
  Qt 5.14 and above.
* For regexes in the config (hints.{prev,next}_regexes), certain
  patterns which will change meanings in future Python versions are
  now disallowed. This is the case for character sets starting with
  a literal [ or containing literal character sequences --, &&, ~~,
  or ||. To avoid a warning, remove the duplicate characters or
  escape them with a backslash.
* If prompt(..., "default") is used via JS, the default text is now
  pre-selected in the prompt shown by qutebrowser.
* URLs such as ::1/foo are now handled as a search term or local
  file rather than IPv6. Use [::1]/foo to force parsing as IPv6
* The script now runs a "smoke test" after setting up the
  virtual environment to ensure it's working as expected. If
  necessary, the test can be skipped via a new --skip-smoke-test
* Both qutebrowser userscripts and Greasemonkey scripts are now
  additionally picked up from qutebrowser's config directory
  (the userscripts and greasemonkey subdirectories of e.g.
  ~/.config/qutebrowser/) rather than only the data directory
  (the same subdirectories of e.g. ~/.local/share/qutebrowser/).
* The :later command now understands a time specification like 5m
  or 1h5m2s, rather than just taking milliseconds.
* The script doesn't use a browser argument anymore;
  instead its --input-format switch can be used to configure the
  input format. The help also was expanded to explain how to use
  it properly.
* If tabs.tabs_are_windows is set, the tabs.last_close setting is
  now ignored and the window is always closed when using
  :close (d).
* With the (default) QtWebEngine backend, if a custom accept header
  is set via content.headers.custom, the custom value is now
  ignored for XHR (XMLHttpRequest) requests. Instead, the sent
  value is now */* or the header set from JavaScript, as it would
  be if content.headers.custom wasn't set.
* The :tab-select completion now shows the underlying renderer
  process PID if doing so is supported (on QtWebEngine 5.15).
* If is set to never, favicons aren't
  unnecessarily downloaded anymore. Thus, disabling favicons can
  help with a possible fingerprinting vector.
* "Super" is now understood as a modifier (i.e. as alias to
* Initial support for Python 3.10 (currently in Alpha stage).
* Various performance improvements, including for the startup time.

* With interpolated color settings (colors.tabs.indicator.* and
  colors.downloads.*), the alpha channel is now handled correctly.
* Fixes to userscripts:
  + format_json now uses env in its shebang, making it work
    correctly on systems where bash isn't located in /bin.
  + qute-pass now handles the MIME output format introduced in
    gopass 1.10.0.
  + qute-lastpass now types multiple < or > characters correctly.
* The :undo completion now sorts its entries correctly (by the
  numerical index rather than lexicographically).
* The completion.web_history.ignore setting now works properly when
  set in (rather than via :set). Additionally, a
  :config-source will not result in a history rebuild if the value
  wasn't actually changed.
* When downloading a data: URL, the suggested filename is now
  improved and contains a proper extension. Before this fix,
  qutebrowser would use the URL's data contents as filename with
  QtWebEngine; or "binary blob" with the Qt network stack.
* When :tab-only is run before a tab is available, an error is now
  shown instead of crashing.
* A couple of long URLs (such as qute://pdfjs URLs) are now not
  added to the history database anymore.
* A bug in QtWebEngine 5.15.2 causes "renderer process killed"
  errors on websites like LinkedIn and TradingView. There is now a
  workaround in qutebrowser to prevent this from happening.
* Nextcloud Calendars started using String.replaceAll which was
  only added to Chromium recently (Chrome 85), so won't work with
  current QtWebEngine versions. This release includes a workaround
  (a polyfill as a site-specific-quirk).

- Update to version 1.14.1
With v1.14.0, qutebrowser configures the main window to be
transparent, so that it's possible to configure a translucent tab-
or statusbar. However, that change introduced various issues, such
as performance degradation on some systems or breaking dmenu window
embedding with its -w option. To avoid those issues for people who
are not using transparency, the default behavior is reverted to
versions before v1.14.0 in this release. A new window.transparent
setting can be set to true to restore the behavior of v1.14.0.

* Setting the content.headers.referer setting to same-domain (the
  default) was supposed to truncate referers to only the host with
  QtWebEngine. Unfortunately, this functionality broke in Qt 5.14.
  It works properly again.
* with this release, including a test so this won't happen again.
* With QtWebEngine 5.15, setting the content.headers.referer
  setting to never did still send referers. This is now fixed as
* In v1.14.0, a regression was introduced, causing a crash when
  qutebrowser was closed after opening a download with PDF.js.
  This is now fixed.
* With Qt 5.12, the Object.fromEntries JavaScript API is
  unavailable (it was introduced in Chromium 73, while Qt 5.12 is
  based on 69). This caused and possibly other
  websites to break when accessed with Qt 5.12. A suitable polyfill
  is now included with qutebrowser if content.site_specific_quirks
  is enabled (which is the default).
* While XDG startup notifications (e.g. launch feedback via the
  bouncy cursor in KDE Plasma) were supported ever since Qt 5.1,
  qutebrowser's desktop file accidentally declared that it wasn't
  supported. This is now fixed.
* The dmenu_qutebrowser and qutedmenu userscripts now correctly
  read the qutebrowser sqlite history which has been in use since
* With Python 3.8+ and vertical tabs, a deprecation warning for an
  implicit int conversion was shown. This is now fixed.
* Ever since Qt 5.11, fetching more completion data when that data
  is loaded lazily (such as with history) and the last visible item
  is selected was broken. The exact reason is currently unknown,
  but this release adds a tenative fix.
* When PgUp/PgDown were used to go beyond the last visible item,
  the above issue caused a crash, which is now also fixed.
* As a workaround for an overzealous Microsoft Defender
  false-positive detecting a "trojan" in the (unprocessed) adblock
  list, :adblock-update now doesn't cache the HTTP response anymore
* With the QtWebKit backend and content.headers set to same-domain
  (the default), origins with the same domain but different schemes
  or ports were treated as the same domain. They now are correctly
  treated as different domains.
* When a URL path uses percent escapes
  (such as, using :navigate up
  would treat the %2F as a path separator and replace any remaining
  percent escapes by their unescaped equivalents. Those are now
  handled correctly.
* The userscript now complains when socat is
  not installed, rather than silencing the error.
* The example AppArmor profile in misc/ was outdated and written
  for the older QtWebKit backend. It is now updated to serve as a
  useful starting point with QtWebEngine.
* With Qt 5.15.2, lines/borders coming from the readability-js
  userscript were invisible. This is now fixed by changing the
  border color to grey (with all Qt versions).
* Due to changes in the underlying Chromium, the
  colors.webpage.prefers_color_scheme_dark setting broke with
  Qt 5.15.2. It now works properly again.
* A bug in the pkg_resources module used by qutebrowser caused
  deprecation warnings to appear on start with Python 3.9 on some
  setups. Those are now hidden.
* Minor performance improvements.
* Fix for various functionality breaking in private windows with
  v1.14.0, after the last private window is closed. This includes:
    + Ad blocking
    + Downloads
    + Site-specific quirks (e.g. for Google login)
    + Certain settings such as content.javascript.enabled

- Change sip requirement to the PyQt5.sip package instead of
  deprecated python-sip

Thu Oct 15 21:57:47 UTC 2020 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.14.0
This release still only contains partial session support for
QtWebEngine 5.15. It's still recommended to run against Qt 5.15
due to the security patches contained in it -- for most users,
the added workarounds seem to work out fine. A rewritten session
support will be part of qutebrowser v2.0.0, tentatively planned
for the end of the year or early 2021.

  * The content.media_capture setting got split up into three more
    fine-grained settings,,
    .video_capture and .audio_video_capture. Before this change,
    answering "always" to a prompt about e.g. audio capturing would
    set the content.media_capture setting, which would also allow
    the same website to capture video on a future visit. Now every
    prompt will set the appropriate setting, though existing
    content.media_capture settings in autoconfig.yml will be
    migrated to set all three settings. To review/change previously
    granted permissions, use :config-diff and e.g.
    :config-unset -u
  * The main window's (invisible) background color is now set to
    transparent. This allows using the alpha channel in
    statusbar/tabbar colors to get a partially transparent
    qutebrowser window on a setup which supports doing so.
  * If QtWebEngine is compiled with PipeWire support and
    libpipewire is installed, qutebrowser will now support screen
    sharing on Wayland. Note that QtWebEngine 5.15.1 is needed.
  * When :undo is used with a count, it now reopens the count-th
    to last tab instead of the last one. The depth can instead be
    passed as an argument, which is also completed.
  * The default completion.timestamp_format now also shows the
  * :back and :forward now take an optional index which is
    completed using the current tab's history.
  * The time a website in a tab was visited is now saved/restored
    in sessions.
  * When attempting to download a file to a location for which
    there's already a still-running download, a confirmation prompt
    is now displayed.
  * :completion-item-focus now understands next-page and prev-page
    with corresponding <PgDown> / <PgUp> default bindings.
  * When the last private window is closed, all private browsing
    data is now cleared.
  * When config.source(...) is used with a --config-py argument
    given, qutebrowser used to search relative files in the config
    basedir, leading to them not being found when using a shared for different basedirs. Instead, they are now
    searched relative to the given file.
  * navigate prev ([[) and navigate next (]]) now recognize links
    with nav-prev and nav-next classes, such as those used by the
    Hugo static site generator.
  * When tabs.favicons is disabled but tabs.tabs_are_windows is
    set, the window icon is still set to the page's favicon now.
  * Dark mode (colors.webpage.darkmode.*) is now supported with
    Qt 5.15.2 (which is not released yet).
  * The default for the darkmode policy.images setting is now set
    to smart which fixes issues with e.g. formulas on Wikipedia.
  * The readability-js userscript now adds some CSS to improve the
    reader mode styling in various scenarios:
    + Images are now shrinked to the page width, similarly to what
      Firefox' reader mode does.
    + Some images ore now displayed as block (rather than inline)
      which is what Firefox' reader mode does as well.
    + Blockquotes are now styled more distinctively, again based
      on the Firefox reader mode.
    + Code blocks are now easier to distinguish from text and
      tables have visible cell margins.
  * The readability-js userscript now supports hint userscript

  * New argument strip for :navigate which removes queries and
    fragments from the current URL.
  * :undo now has a new -w / --window argument, which can be used
    to restore closed windows (rather than tabs). This is bound to
    U by default.
  * :jseval can now take javascript:... URLs via a new --url flag.
  * New replacement {aligned_index} for tabs.title.format and
    format_pinned which behaves like {index}, but space-pads the
    index based on the total numbers of tabs. This can be used to
    get aligned tab texts with vertical tabs.
  * New command :devtools-focus (bound to wIf) to toggle keyboard
    focus between the devtools and web page.
  * The --target argument to qutebrowser now understands a new
    private-window value, which can be used to open a private
    window in an existing instance from the commandline.
  * The :download-open command now has a new --dir flag, which can
    be used to open the directory containing the downloaded file.
    An entry to do the same was also added to the context menu.
  * Messages are now wrapped when they are too long to be displayed
    on a single line.
  * New possible --debug-flag values:
    + wait-renderer-process waits for a SIGUSR1 in the renderer
      process so a debugger can be attached.
    + avoid-chromium-init allows using --version without needing
      a working QtWebEngine/Chromium.

  * A URL pattern with a *. host was considered valid and matched
    all hosts. Due to keybindings like tsH toggling scripts for
    *://*.{url:host}/*, invoking them on pages without a host
    (e.g. about:blank) could result in accidentally
    allowing/blocking JavaScript for all pages. Such patterns are
    now considered invalid, with existing patterns being
    automatically removed from autoconfig.yml.
  * When was set to overlay (the default),
    qutebrowser would internally override any enable-features=...
    flags passed via qt.args or --qt-flag. It now correctly
    combines existing enable-feature flags with internal ones.
  * Elements with an inherited contenteditable attribute now
    trigger insert mode and get hints assigned correctly.
  * When checkmarks, radio buttons and some other elements are
    styled via the Bootstrap CSS framework, they now get hints
  * When the session file isn't writable when qutebrowser exits,
    an error is now logged instead of crashing.
  * When using -m with the qute-lastpass userscript, it
    accidentally matched URLs containing the match as substring.
    This is now fixed.
  * When a filename is derived from a page's title, it's now
    shortened to the maximum filename length permitted by the
  * :enter-mode register crashed since v1.13.0, it now displays
    an error instead.
  * With the QtWebKit backend, webpage resources loading certain
    invalid URLs could cause a crash, which is now fixed.
  * When :config-edit is used but no exists yet, the file
    is now created (and watched for changes properly) before
    spawning the external editor.
  * When hint mode was entered from outside normal mode, the status
    bar was empty instead of displaying the proper text.
    This is now fixed.
  * When entering different modes too quickly (e.g. pressing fV),
    the statusbar could end up in a confusing state. This is now
  * When qutebrowser quits, running downloads are now cancelled
  * The site-specific quirk for has been updated
    to work after recent changes in WhatsApp.
  * Highlighting in the completion now works properly when UTF-16
    surrogate pairs (such as emoji) are involved.
  * When a windowed inspector is clicked, insert mode now isn't
    entered anymore.
  * When :undo is used to re-open a tab, but tabs.tabs_are_windows
    was set between closing and undoing the close, qutebrowser
    crashed. This is now fixed.
  * With QtWebEngine 5.15.0, setting the darkmode image policy to
    smart leads to renderer process crashes. The offending setting
    value is now ignored with a warning.
  * Fixes for the qute-pass userscript:
    + With newer gopass versions, a deprecation notice was copied
      as password due to qute-pass using it in a deprecated way.
    + The --password-store argument didn't actually set
    + PASSWORD_STORE_DIR for pass, resulting in qute-pass finding
      matches but the underlying pass not finding matching

- Update to version 1.13.1
  * With Qt 5.14, shared workers are now disabled. This works
    around a crash in QtWebEngine on certain sites (like the Epic
    Games Store or the Unreal Engine page).
  * When a window is closed, the tab it contains are now correctly
    shut down (closing e.g. any dialogs which are still open for
    those tabs).
  * The Qt 5.15 session workaround now loads the correct (rather
    than the last) page when :back was used before saving a
  * Certain autoconfig.yml with an invalid structure could lead to
    crashes, which are now fixed.
  * Ever since Qt 5.9, when input.mouse.rocker_gestures was
    enabled, the context menu still was shown when clicking the
    right mouse button, thus preventing the rocker gestures.
    This is now fixed.
  * Clicking the inspector switched from existing modes (such as
    passthrough) to normal mode since v1.13.0. Now insert mode is
    only entered when the inspector is clicked in normal mode.
  * Pulseaudio now shows qutebrowser's audio streams as qutebrowser
    correctly, rather than showing them as Chromium with some Qt
  * If :help was called with a deprecated command (e.g. :help
    :inspector), the help page would show despite deprecated
    commands not being documented. This now shows an error instead.
  * The qute-lastpass userscript now filters out duplicate entries
    with --merge-candidates.

Mon Jul  6 23:40:08 UTC 2020 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.13.0
  * The :inspector command is deprecated and has been replaced by
    a new :devtools command (see below).

  * The :debug-log-level command was removed as it's replaced by
    the new logging.level.console setting.
  * The qute://plainlog special page got replaced by
    qute://log?plain - the names of those pages is considered an
    implementation detail, and :messages --plain should be used

  * Changes to commands:
    + :config-write-py now adds a note about files being
      targeted at advanced users.
    + :report now takes two optional arguments for bug/contact
      information, so that it can be used without the report window
      popping up.
    + :message now takes a --logfilter / -f argument, which is a
      list of logging categories to show.
    + :debug-log-filter now understands the full logfilter syntax.
  * Changes to settings:
    + fonts.tabs has been split into
      fonts.tabs.{selected,unselected} (see below).
    + statusbar.hide has been renamed to with the
      possible values being always (hide = False),
      never (hide = True) or in-mode (new, only show statusbar
      outside of normal mode).
    + The QtFont config type formerly used for fonts.tabs and
      fonts.debug_console is now removed and entirely replaced
      by Font. The former distinction was mainly an implementation
      detail, and the accepted values shouldn't have changed.
    + input.rocker_gestures has been renamed to
    + content.dns_prefetch is now enabled by default again,
      since the crashes it caused are now fixed (Qt 5.15)
      or worked around.
    + supports a new overlay value to show an overlay
      scrollbar, which is now the default. On unsupported
      configurations (on Qt < 5.11, with QtWebKit or on macOS),
      the value falls back to when-searching or never (QtWebKit).
    + url.auto_search supports a new schemeless value which always
      opens a search unless the given URL includes an explicit
  * New handling of bindings in hint mode which fixes various bugs
    and allows for single-letter keybindings in hint mode.
  * The statusbar now shows partial keychains in all modes
    (e.g. while hinting).
  * New t[Cc][Hh] default bindings which work similarly to the
    t[Ss][Hh] bindings for JavaScript but toggle cookie permissions
  * The tor_identity userscript now takes the password via a -p
    flag and has a new -c flag to customize the Tor control port.
  * Small performance improvements.

  * New settings:
    + logging.level.ram and logging.level.console to configure the
      default logging levels via the config.
    + fonts.tabs.selected and fonts.tabs.unselected to set the font
      of the selected tab independently from unselected tabs
      (e.g. to make it bold).
    + input.mouse.back_forward_buttons which can be set to false
      to disable back/forward mouse buttons.
  * New :devtools command (replacing :inspector) with various
    improved functionality:
    + The devtools can now be docked to the main window, by running
      :devtools left (wIh), bottom (wIj), top (wIk) or right (wIl).
      To show them in a new window, use :devtools window (wIw).
      Using :devtools (wi) will open them at the last used position
    + The devtool window now has a "qutebrowser developer tools"
      window title.
    + When a resource is opened from the devtools, it now opens in
      a proper qutebrowser tab.
    + If opened as a window, the devtools are now closed properly
      when the associated tab is closed.
    + When the devtools are clicked, insert mode is entered

  * Crash when tabs.focus_stack_size is set to -1.
  * Crash when a pdf.js file for PDF.js exists, but viewer.html
    does not.
  * Crash when there's a feature permission request from Qt with an
    invalid URL (which happens due to a Qt bug with Qt 5.15 in
    private browsing mode).
  * Crash in rare cases where QtWebKit/QtWebEngine imports fail in
    unexpected ways.
  * Crash when something removed qutebrowser's IPC socket file and
    it's been running for 6 hours.
  * :config-write-py now works with paths starting with ~/... again
  * New site-specific quirk for a missing globalThis in Qt <= 5.12
    on Reddit and Spotify.
  * When ; is added to hints.chars, using hint labels containing ;;
    now works properly.
  * Hint letters outside of ASCII should now work.
  * When bindings.key_mappings is used with hints, it now works
    properly with letters outside of ASCII as well.
  * With Qt 5.15, the audible/muted indicators are not updated
    properly due to a Qt bug. This release adds a workaround
    so that at least the muted indicator is shown properly.
  * As a workaround for crashes with QtWebEngine versions between
    5.12 and 5.14 (inclusive), changing the user agent
    (content.headers.user_agent) exposed to JS now requires
    a restart. The corresponding HTTP header is not affected.

Tue Jun  2 13:01:22 UTC 2020 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.12.0
  * Support for using config.bind(key, None) in to unbind
    a key was deprecated in v1.8.2 and is now removed.
    Use config.unbind(key) instead.
  * :yank markdown was deprecated in v1.7.0 and is now removed.
    Use :yank inline [{title}]({url}) instead.

  * New :debug-keytester command, which shows a "key tester"
    widget. Previously, that was only available as a separate
    application via python3 -m scripts.keytester.
  * New :config-diff command which opens the qute://configdiff
  * New --debug-flag log-cookies to log cookies to the debug log.
  * New colors.contextmenu.disabled.{fg,bg} settings to customize
    colors for disabled items in the context menu.
  * New line selection mode (:toggle-selection --line), bound to
    Shift-V in caret mode.
  * New colors.webpage.darkmode.* settings to control Chromium's
    dark mode. Note that those settings only work with QtWebEngine
    on Qt >= 5.14 and require a restart of qutebrowser.

  * The content.cookies.accept setting now accepts URL patterns.
  * The :tab-focus command now has completion for tabs in the
    current window.
  * The bindings.key_mappings setting now maps <Ctrl+I> to the tab
    key by default.
  * :tab-give --private now detaches a tab into a new private

  * Using :open -s now only rewrites http:// in URLs to https://,
    not other schemes like qute://.
  * When an unhandled exception happens in certain parts of the
    code (outside of the main thread), qutebrowser did crash or
    freeze when trying to show its exception handler.
    This is now fixed.
  * :inspector now works correctly when cookies are disabled
  * When entering caret selection mode (v, v) very early before a
    page is loaded, an error is now shown instead of a crash
  * The workaround for session loading with Qt 5.15 now handles
    sessions.lazy_restore so that the saved page is loaded instead
    of the "stub" page with no possibility to get to the web page.
  * A site specific quirk to allow typing accented characters on
    Google Docs was active for, but not It is now applied for both subdomains.
  * With older graphics hardware (OpenGL < 4.3) with Qt 5.14 on
    Wayland, WebGL causes segfaults. Now qutebrowser detects that
    combination and suggests to disable WebGL or use XWayland.

- Update to version 1.11.1
  * CVE-2020-11054: After a certificate error was overridden by
  the user, qutebrowser displays the URL as yellow
  (colors.statusbar.url.warn.fg). However, when the affected
  website was subsequently loaded again, the URL was mistakenly
  displayed as green (colors.statusbar.url.success_https).
  While the user already has seen a certificate error prompt
  at this point (or set content.ssl_strict to false which is not
  recommended), this could still provide a false sense of security.
  This is now fixed.

Wed May  6 05:00:29 UTC 2020 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.11.0
  * New settings:
    + search.wrap which can be set to false to prevent wrapping
      around the page when searching. With QtWebEngine, Qt 5.14
      or newer is required.
    + content.unknown_url_scheme_policy which allows controlling
      when an external application is opened for external links
      (never, from user interaction, always).
    + content.fullscreen.overlay_timeout to configure how long the
      fullscreen overlay should be displayed. If set to 0,
      no overlay is displayed.
    + hints.padding to add additional padding for hints.
    + hints.radius to set a border radius for hints
      (set to 3 by default).
  * New placeholders for url.searchengines values:
    + {unquoted} inserts the search term without any quoting.
    + {semiquoted} (same as {}) quotes most special characters,
      but slashes remain unquoted.
    + {quoted} (same as {} in earlier releases) also quotes slashes

  * First adaptions to Qt 5.15, including a stop-gap measure for
    session loading not working properly with it.
  * Searching now wraps around the page by default with QtWebKit
    (where it didn't before). Set search.wrap to false to restore
    the old behavior.
  * The {} placeholder for search engines
    (the url.searchengines setting) now does not quote slashes
    anymore, but other characters typically encoded in URLs still
    get encoded. This matches the behavior of search engines in
    Chromium. To revert to the old behavior, use {quoted} instead.
  * The content.windowed_fullscreen setting got renamed to
  * Mouse-wheel scrolling is now prevented while hints are active.
  * Changes to userscripts:
    + qute-bitwarden now has an optional --totp flag which can be
      used to copy TOTP codes to clipboard
      (requires the pyperclip module).
    + readability-js now opens readability tabs next to the
      original tab (using the :open --related flag).
    + readability-js now displays a favicon for readability tabs.
    + password_fill now triggers a change JavaScript event after
      filling the data.
  * The script now shows better error messages.
  * Minor performance improvements.

  * A warning about old Qt versions is now also shown with Qt 5.9
    and 5.10, as support for Qt < 5.11 will be dropped in
    qutebrowser v2.0.

  * unsafeWindow is now defined for Greasemonkey scripts with
  * The proxied window global is now shared between different
    Greasemonkey scripts (but still separate from the page's
    window), to match the original Greasemonkey implementation.
  * The --output-messages (-m) flag added in v1.9.0 now also works
    correctly when using :spawn --userscript.
  * :version and --version now don't crash if there's an (invalid)
    /etc/os-release file which has non-comment lines without
    a = character.
  * Scripts in scripts/ now report errors to stderr correctly,
    instead of using stdout.

Sun Apr 19 16:08:25 UTC 2020 - Mia Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.10.2
  * The WhatsApp workaround now also works when using WhatsApp in
    languages other than English.

Sun Feb 16 12:38:59 UTC 2020 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.10.1
  * Crash when saving data fails during shutdown (which was a
    regression introduced in v1.9.0).
  * Error while reading when fonts.tabs or
    fonts.debug_console is set to a value including default_size.
  * When a state file contains invalid UTF-8 data, a proper error
    is now displayed.

  * When the Qt version changes (and also on the first start of
    v1.10.1 on Qt 5.14), service workers registered by websites are
    now deleted. This is done as a workaround for QtWebEngine
    issues causing crashes when visiting pages using service
    workers (such as Google Mail/Drive). No persistent data should
    be affected as websites can re-register their service workers,
    but a (single) backup is kept at webengine/Service Worker-bak
    in qutebrowser's data directory.
  * Better output on stdout when config errors occur.
  * The default for has been
    changed to a slightly different gray, as a workaround for a Qt
    issue where the cursor was invisible in that case.

Thu Feb 13 16:14:30 UTC 2020 - Tom Warnke <>

- replace shebangs pointing to /usr/bin/bash with /bin/bash. This 
  removes the requirement /usr/bin/bash from the RPM.
  Fixes boo#1163276.

Wed Feb  5 07:18:39 UTC 2020 - Martin Rey <>

- Update to version 1.10.0
  * New colors.webpage.prefers_color_scheme_dark setting which
    allows forcing prefers-color-scheme: dark colors for websites
    (QtWebEngine with Qt 5.14 or newer).
  * New fonts.default_size setting which can be used to set a
    bigger font size for all UI fonts.

  * The fonts.monospace setting has been removed and replaced by
    fonts.default_family. The new default_family setting is
    improved in various ways:
    + It accepts a list of font families (or a single font family)
      rather than a comma-separated string. As an example, instead
      of fonts.monospace = "Courier, Monaco", use
      fonts.default_family = ["Courier", "Monaco"].
    + Since a list is now accepted as value, no quoting of font
      names with spaces is required anymore. As an example,
      instead of fonts.monospace = '"xos4 Terminus"', use
      fonts.default_family = 'xos4 Terminus'.
    + It is now empty by default rather than having a long list of
      font names in the default config. When the value is empty,
      the system's default monospaced font is used.
  * If monospace is now used in a font value, it's used literally
    and not replaced anymore. Instead, default_family is replaced
    as explained above.
  * The default content.headers.accept_language value now adds a
    ;q=0.9 classifier which should make the value sent more
    in-line with what other browsers do.
  * The qute-pass userscript now has a new --mode gopass switch
    which uses gopass rather than pass.
  * The tox -e mkvenv (or mkvenv-pypi) way of installing
    qutebrowser is now replaced by a script. See the
    updated link:install{outfilesuffix}#tox[install instructions]
    for details.

  * When quitting qutebrowser, components are now cleaned up
    differently. This should fix certain (rare) segmentation
    faults and exceptions when quitting, especially with the new
    exit scheme introduced in in PyQt5 5.13.1.
  * Added a workaround for per-domain settings (e.g. a JavaScript
    whitelist) not being applied in some scenarios with Qt 5.13
    and above.
  * Added additional site-specific quirk for WhatsApp Web.
  * The qute-pass userscript now works correctly when a
    PASSWORD_STORE_DIR ending with a trailing slash is given.

Thu Jan  9 22:24:07 UTC 2020 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.9.0
  * Initial support for Qt 5.14.
  * New content.site_specific_quirks setting which enables
    workarounds for websites with broken user agent parsing
    (enabled by default, see the "Fixed" section for fixed
  * New qt.force_platformtheme setting to force Qt to use a given
    platform theme.
  * New tabs.tooltips setting which can be used to disable hover
    tooltips for tabs.
  * New settings to configure the appearance of context menus:
    + fonts.contextmenu
    + colors.contextmenu.selected.fg

  * The content.headers.user_agent setting now is a format string
    with the default value resembling the behavior of it being set
    to null before. This slightly changes the sent user agent for
    QtWebKit: Instead of mentioning qutebrowser and its version
    it now mentions the Qt version.
  * The qute-pass userscript now has a new --extra-url-suffixes
    (-s) argument which passes extra URL suffixes to the tldextract
  * A stack is now used for :tab-focus last rather than just saving
    one tab. Additionally, :tab-focus now understands stack-prev
    and stack-next arguments to traverse that stack.
  * :hint now has a new right-click target which allows
    right-clicking elements via hints.
  * The Terminus font has been removed from the default monospace
    fonts since it caused trouble with HighDPI setups. To get it
    back, add either "xos4 Terminus" or Terminus (depending on
    fontconfig version) to the beginning of the fonts.monospace
  * As a workaround for a Qt bug causing a segfault, desktop
    sharing is now automatically rejected on Qt versions before
    5.13.2. Note that screen sharing still won't work on Linux
    before Qt 5.14.
  * Comment lines in quickmarks/bookmarks files are now ignored.
    However, note that qutebrowser will overwrite those files if
    bookmark/quickmark commands are used.
  * Reopening PDF.js pages from e.g. a session file will now
    re-download and display those PDFs.
  * Improved behavior when using :open-download in a sandboxed
    environment (KDE Flatpak).
  * qutebrowser now enables the new PyQt exit scheme, which should
    result in things being cleaned up more properly (e.g. cookies
    being saved even without a timeout) on PyQt 5.13.1 and newer.
  * The :spawn command has a new -m / --output-messages argument
    which shows qutebrowser messages based on a command's standard
  * Improved insert mode detection for some CodeMirror usages
    (e.g. in JupyterLab and Jupyter Notebook).
  * If JavaScript is disabled globally, file://* now doesn't
    automatically have it enabled anymore. Run :set -u file://*
    content.javascript.enabled true to restore the previous
  * Settings with URL patterns can now be used to affect the
    behavior of the QtWebEngine inspector. Note that the underlying
    URL is chrome-devtools://* from Qt 5.11 to Qt 5.13, but
    devtools://* with Qt 5.14.
  * Improvements when tabs.tabs_are_windows is set:
    + Using :tab-take and :tab-give now shows an error, as the
      effect of doing so would be equal to :tab-clone.
    + The :buffer completion doesn't show any window sections
      anymore, only a flat list of tabs.
  * Improved parsing in some corner cases for the QtFont type
    (used for fonts.tabs and fonts.debug_console).
  * Performance improvements for the following areas:
    + Adding settings with URL patterns
    + Matching of settings using URL patterns

  * Downloads (e.g. via :download) now see the same user agent
    header as webpages, which fixes cases where overly restrictive
    servers/WAFs closed the connection before.
  * The logic for :restart has been revisited, which should fix
    issues with relative basedirs.
  * Remaining issues related to Python 3.8 are now fixed
    (mostly warnings, especially on QtWebKit).
  * Workaround for a Qt bug where a page never finishes loading
    with a non-overridable TLS error (e.g. due to HSTS).
  * The qute://configdiff page now doesn't show built-in settings
    (e.g. javascript being enabled for qute:// and chrome:// pages)
  * The qute-lastpass userscript now stops prompting for passwords
    when cancelling the password input.
  * The tab hover text now shows ampersands (&) correctly.
  * With QtWebEngine and Qt >= 5.11, the inspector now shows its
    icons correctly even if loading of images is disabled via the
    content.images setting.
  * Entering a very long string (over 50k characters) in the
    completion used to crash, now it shows an error message instead
  * Various improvements for URL/searchengine detection:
    + Strings with a dot but with characters not allowed in a URL
      (e.g. an underscore) are now not treated as URL anymore.
    + Strings like "5/8" are now not treated as IP anymore.
    + URLs with an explicit scheme and a space (%20) are correctly
      treated as URLs.
    + Mail addresses are now treated as search terms.
    + With url.open_base_url set, searching for a search engine
      name now works.
    + url.open_base_url = True together with
      url.auto_search = 'never' is now handled correctly.
    + Fixed crash when a search engine URL turns out to be invalid.
  * New "site specific quirks", which work around some broken
    + WhatsApp Web
    + Google Accounts
    + Slack (with older QtWebEngine versions)
    + support pages (with Qt 5.7)
    + Google Docs (fixes broken IME/compose key)

Thu Dec  5 23:17:55 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.8.3
  * Segmentation fault introduced in v1.8.2 when a tab gets closed
    immediately after it has finished loading (e.g. with certain
    login flows).

Tue Nov 26 04:39:55 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.8.2
  * Unbinding keys via config.bind(key, None) accidentally worked
    in v1.7.0 but raises an exception in v1.8.0. It now works
    again, but is deprecated and shows an error. Note that
    :config-py-write did write such invalid lines before v1.8.0,
    so existing config files might need adjustments.
  * The readability-js userscript now handles encodings correctly
    (which it didn't before for some websites).
  * can now be used to paste text starting with a hyphen.
  * Following hints via the number keypad now works properly again.
  * Errors while reading the state file are now displayed instead
    of causing a crash.
  * Crash when using :debug-log-level without a console attached.
  * Downloads are now hidden properly when the browser is in
    fullscreen mode.
  * Crash when setting to an empty value with
  * Crash when the history database file is not a proper sqlite

Thu Oct 17 22:57:12 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.8.1
  * New userscripts:
    + readability-js which uses Mozilla's node.js readability
    + qute-bitwarden which integrates the Bitwarden CLI.

  * The statusbar text for passthrough mode now shows all
    configured bindings to leave the mode, not only one.
  * When :config-source is used with a relative filename, the file
    is now searched in the config directory instead of the current
    working directory.
  * HTML5 inputs with date/time types now enter insert mode when
  * now shows where dictionaries are installed to and
    complains when running it as root if doing so would result in
    a wrong installation path.
  * Changes to userscripts:
    + qute-pass: Don't run pass if only a username is requested.
    + qute-pass: Support private domains like myrouter.local.
    + readability: Improved CSS styling.
  * Performance improvements in various areas:
    + Loading config files
    + Typing without any completion matches
    + General keyboard handling
    + Scrolling
  * :version now shows details about the loaded
  * Hosts are now additionally looked up including their ports in
    netrc files.
  * With Qt 5.10 or newer, qutebrowser now doesn't force software
    rendering with Nouveau drivers anymore. However,
    QtWebEngine/Chromium still do so.
  * The XSS Auditor is now disabled by default
    (content.xss_auditing = false). This reflects a similar change
    in Chromium, see their XSS Auditor Design Document for details.

  * :config-write-py now correctly writes config.unbind(...) lines
    (instead of config.bind(..., None)) when unbinding a default
  * Prevent repeat keyup events for JavaScript when a key is held
  * ~/.config/qutebrowser/blocked-hosts can now also contain
    /etc/hosts-like lines, not just simple hostnames.
  * Restored compatibility with Jinja2 2.8
  * Fixed implicit type conversion warning with Python 3.8.
  * The desktop file now sets StartupWMClass correctly, so the
    qutebrowser icon is no longer shown twice in the Gnome dock
    when pinned.
  * Bindings involving keys which need the AltGr key now work
  * Fixed crash (caused by a Qt bug) when typing characters above
    the Unicode BMP (such as certain emoji or CJK characters).
  * now works properly again.
  * Shift can now be used while typing hint keystrings, which e.g.
    allows typing number hints on French keyboards.
  * With rapid hinting in number mode, backspace now edits the
    filter text after following a hint.
  * A certain type of error ("locking protocol") while initializing
    sqlite now isn't handled as crash anymore.
  * Crash when showing a permission request in certain scenarios.

  * At least Python 3.5.2 is now required to run qutebrowser,
    support for 3.5.0 and 3.5.1 was dropped.

Thu Jul 18 15:27:22 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.7.0
  * New settings:
    + colors.tabs.pinned.* to control colors of pinned tabs.
    + hints.leave_on_load which allows disabling leaving of hint
      mode when a new page is loaded.
    + colors.completion.item.selected.match.fg which allows
      configuring the text color for the matching text in the
      currently selected completion item.
    + tabs.undo_stack_size to limit how many undo entries are kept
      for closed tabs.
  * New commands:
    + :reverse-selection (o in caret mode) to swap the
      stationary/moving ends of a selection.
  * New commandline replacements:
    + {url:domain}, {url:auth}, {url:scheme}, {url:username},
      {url:password}, {url:host}, {url:port}, {url:path},
      {url:query} for the respective parts of the current URL.
    + {title} for the current page title.
  * The {title} field in tabs.title.format,
    tabs.title.format_pinned and window.title_format got renamed to
    {current_title} (mirroring {current_url}) in order to not
    conflict with the new {title} commandline replacement.
  * New delete target for :hint which removes the hinted element
    from the DOM.
  * New --config-py commandline argument to use a custom
  * Qt 5.13: Support for notifications (shown via system tray).

  * The desktop file qutebrowser.desktop is now renamed to
  * Pinned tabs now always show a favicon (even if the site doesn't
    provide one) when shrinking.
  * Setting now changes the directory
    displayed in the download prompt even if
    downloads.location.remember is set.
  * The yank command gained a new inline argument, which allows to
    e.g. use :yank inline [{title}]({url}).
  * Duplicate consecutive history entries with the same URL are now
  * More detailed error messages when spawning a process failed.
  * The content.pdfjs setting now supports domain patterns.
  * Improved process status output with :spawn -o.
  * The setting is now of type QssColor and thus
    supports gradients.
  * The :fullscreen command now understands a new --enter flag
    which causes it to always enter fullscreen instead of toggling
    the current state.
  * --debug-flag stack is now needed to show stack traces on
    renderer process crashes.
  * --debug-flag chromium can be used to easily turn on verbose
    Chromium logging.
  * Permission prompts can now be answered with
    Y (:prompt-accept --save yes) and N (:prompt-accept --save no)
    to save the answer as a per-domain setting.
  * content.dns_prefetch is now turned off by default, as it causes
    crashes inside QtWebEngine.
  * The (still unofficial) interceptor plugin API now contains
    resource_type for a request and allows redirecting requests.
  * :bookmark-remove now shows a message for consistency with
  * Very early segfaults are now also caught by the crash handler.
  * The appdata XML now contains proper release information and an
    (empty) OARS content rating.
  * Improved Linux distribution detection.
  * Qt 5.13: Request filtering now happens in the UI rather than
    IO thread.
  * Qt 5.13: Support for PDFium (Chromium's PDF viewer) is disabled
    for now so that PDFs can still be downloaded
    (or shown with PDF.js) properly.
  * Various performance improvements (e.g. for showing hints or
    the :open completion).

  * :yank markdown got deprecated, as :yank inline [{title}]({url})
    can now be used instead.

  * Various QtWebEngine load signals are now handled differently,
    which should fix issues with insert mode being left while
    typing on sites like Google Translate.
  * Race condition causing a colored statusbar in normal mode when
    entering/exiting caret mode quickly.
  * Using 100% for a hue in a hsv(...) config value now corresponds
    to 359 (rather than 255), matching the fixed behavior in
    Qt 5.13.
  * Chaining commands with ;; used to abort with some failing
    commands. It now runs the second command no matter whether the
    first one succeeded or not.
  * Handling of profiles and private windows (and resulting crashes
    with Qt 5.12.2).
  * Fixes for corner-cases when using :navigate increment/decrement
  * The type for the colors.hints.match.fg setting was changed to
  * Gradients were never supported for this setting, and with this
    change, values like rgb(0, 0, 0) now work as well.
  * Permission prompts now show a properly normalized URL with
  * Crash on start when PyQt was built without SSL support with
    Qt >= 5.12.
  * Minor memory leaks.

Tue Jun 18 12:13:45 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.6.3

  * Crash when hinting and changing/closing the tab before hints
    are displayed.
  * Crash on redirects with Qt 5.13.
  * Hide bogus AA_ShareOpenGLContexts warning with Qt 5.12.4.
  * Workaround for renderer process crashes with Qt 5.12.4.
    If you're unable to update, you can remove ~/.cache/qutebrowser
    for the same result.

Mon May  6 21:15:52 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.6.2

  * Crash when SQL errors occur while using the completion.
  * Crash when cancelling a download prompt started in an already
    closed window.
  * Crash when many prompts are opened at the same time.
  * Running without Qt installed now displays a proper error again.
  * High CPU usage when using the keyhint widget with a low delay.

Mon Apr  1 19:40:27 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Force sqlite backend to be installed, otherwise qtbrowser segfaults

Wed Mar 20 06:05:39 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.6.1

  * Crash when using :config-{dict,list}-{add,remove} with an invalid setting.
  * Functionality like hinting on pages with an element with ID _qutebrowser
    (such as on Qt 5.12.
  * The .desktop file in v1.6.0 was missing the "Actions" key.
  * The SVG icon now has a size of 256x256px set to comply with freedesktop
  * Setting colors.statusbar.*.bg to a gradient now has the expected effect of
    the gradient spanning the entire statusbar.

Tue Feb 26 01:48:56 UTC 2019 - Martin Herkt <>

- Update to version 1.6.0

  * New settings:
    + tabs.new_position.stacking which controls whether new tabs
      opened from a page should stack on each other or not.
    + completion.open_categories which allows to configure which
      categories are shown in the :open completion, and how they
      are ordered.
    + tabs.pinned.frozen to allow/deny navigating in pinned tabs.
    + hints.selectors which allows to configure what CSS selectors
      are used for hints, and also allows adding custom hint groups
    + input.insert_mode.leave_on_load to turn off leaving insert
      mode when a new page is loaded.

  * New config manipulation commands:
    + :config-dict-add and :config-list-add to a new element to a
      dict/list setting.
    + :config-dict-remove and :config-list-remove to remove an
      element from a dict/list setting.
    + New :yank markdown feature which yanks the current URL and
      title in markdown format.
    + Support for new QtWebEngine features in Qt 5.12:
      ~ Basic support for client certificates. Selecting the
        certificate to use when there are multiple matching
        certificates isn't implemented yet.
      ~ Support for DNS prefetching (plus new content.dns_prefetch

  * :q now closes the current window instead of quitting
    qutebrowser completely (:close), while :qa quits (:quit).
    The behavior of :wq remains unchanged (:quit --save), as
    closing a window while saving the session doesn't make sense.
  * Completion highlighting is now done differently (using
    QSyntaxHighlighter), which should fix some highlighting
  * The QtColor config type now also understands colors like
  * :yank now has a --quiet option which causes it to not display
    a message.
  * The :open completion now also shows search engines by default.
  * The content.host_blocking.enabled setting now supports URL
    patterns, so the adblocker can be disabled on a given page.
  * Elements with a tabindex attribute now also get hints by
  * Various small performance improvements for hints and the
  * The Wayland check for QtWebEngine is now disabled on
    Qt >= 5.11.2, as those versions should work without any issues.
  * The JavaScript console object is now available in PAC files.
  * PAC proxies currently don't work properly on QtWebEngine (and
    never did), so an error is now shown when trying to configure
    a PAC proxy.
  * The metainfo file qutebrowser.appdata.xml is now renamed to
  * The qute-pass userscript now understands domains in gpg
    filenames in addition to directory names.
  * The autocompletion for content.headers.user_agent got updated
    to only include the default and Chrome, as setting the UA to
    Firefox has various bad side-effects.
  * Combining Qt 5.12 with an older PyQt can lead to issues, so a
    warning is now shown when starting qutebrowser with that

  * Invalid world IDs now get rejected for :jseval and GreaseMonkey
  * When websites suggest download filenames with invalid
    characters, those are now correctly replaced.
  * Invalid hint length calculation in certain rare cases.
  * Dragging tabs in the tab bar (which was broken in v1.5.0)
  * Using Shift-Home in command mode now works properly.
  * Workaround for a Qt bug which prevented
    content.cookies.accept = no-3rdparty from working properly on

      + completion.web_history.exclude which hides a list of URL
        patterns from the completion.
      + qt.process_model which can be used to change Chromium's
        process model.
      + qt.low_end_device_mode which turns on Chromium's low-end
        device mode. This mode uses less RAM, but the expense of
      + content.webrtc_ip_handling_policy, which allows more
        fine-grained/restrictive control about which IPs are
        exposed via WebRTC.

    * The default keybinding to leave passthrough mode was changed
      from <Ctrl-V> to <Shift-Escape>, which makes pasting from the
      clipboard easier in passthrough mode and is also unlikely to
      conflict with webpage bindings.
    * The app_id is now set to qutebrowser for Wayland.
    * Using :set option now shows the value of the setting
      (like :set option? already did).

    * The qute://settings page is now properly sorted on Python 3.5
    * :zoom, :zoom-in and :zoom-out now have a --quiet switch which
      causes them to not display a message.

      managers (like i3).
    * Crash when opening URLs with some unicode characters
      (IDNA 2008). Those URLs still won't open though, due to
      missing support in Qt.
    * Crash when a download directory which can't be created is
    * Crash in the script when importing Chrome
      bookmarks from newer Chrome versions.
    * The content.webrtc_public_interfaces_only option didn't work
      on Qt 5.11 previously (it now does). Note it still does not
      work on Qt 5.10 (due to a Qt bug) and Qt < 5.9.2.
    * Repeated escaping of entries in qute://log when refreshing
    * The host blocker doesn't block anymore.

    * QtWebEngine: On Qt 5.11.1, no reloads are needed anymore
      when switching between pages with changed settings
      (e.g. content.javascript.enabled).

      visible in caret browsing.
    * When a prompt is opened in insert/passthrough mode, the mode
      is restored after closing the prompt.
    * On Qt 5.10 or newer, dictionaries are now read from the
      qutebrowser data directory (e.g. ~/.local/share/qutebrowser)
      instead of /usr/share/qt.
      Existing dictionaries are copied over.
    * If an error while parsing ~/.netrc occurs, the cause of the
      error is now logged.
    * On Qt 5.9 or newer, certificate errors now show Chromium's

        + qute-keepass to get passwords from KeePassX.

    * QtWebEngine: Support for JavaScript Shared Web Workers have
      been disabled on Qt versions older than 5.11 because of
      security issues in in Chromium. You can get the same effect
      in earlier versions via
      ":set qt.args ['disable-shared-workers']". An equivalent

    * An invalid spellcheck dictionary filename now doesn't crash
      anymore. When no spellcheck dictionaries are configured,
      it's now disabled internally. This works around an issue with
      entering special characters on Facebook messenger.

- Update to version 1.2.0:
    * Initial implementation of per-domain settings:
      + :set and :config-cycle now have a -u/--pattern argument
        taking a URL match pattern for supported settings.
      + config.set in now takes a third argument which is
        the pattern.
      + New with config.pattern('...') as p: context manager for to use the shorthand syntax with a pattern.
      + New tsh keybinding to toggle scripts for the current host.
        With a capital S, the toggle is saved. With a capital H,
        subdomains are included. With u instead of h, the exact
        current URL is used.
      + New tph keybinding to toggle plugins, with the same
        additional binding described above.
    * New QtWebEngine features:
      + Caret/visual mode
      + Authentication via ~/.netrc
      + Retrying downloads with Qt 5.10 or newer

        which remembers input modes (input/passthrough) per tab.
      + input.insert_mode.auto_enter which makes it possible to
        disable entering insert mode automatically when an editable
        element was clicked. Together with
        input.forward_unbound_keys, this should allow for
        emacs-like "modeless" keybindings.
    * New :prompt-yank command (bound to Alt-y by default) to yank
      URLs referenced in prompts.
    * The hostblock_blame script which was removed in v1.0 was
      updated for the new config and re-added.
    * New cycle-inputs.js script in scripts/ which can be used with

        binding unused keys in hint mode).
      + Yes/no prompts don't use keybindings from the prompt
        section anymore, they have their own yesno section instead.
      + Trying to bind invalid keys now shows an error.
      + The bindings.default setting can now only be set in a, and existing values in autoconfig.yml are
    * Improvements for GreaseMonkey support:
      + @include and @exclude now support regex matches.
        With QtWebEngine and Qt 5.8 and newer, Qt handles the
        matching, but similar functionality will be added in
        Qt 5.11.
      + Support for @requires
      + Support for the GreaseMonkey 4.0 API
    * The sqlite history now uses write-ahead logging which should

    * More performance improvements when opening/closing many tabs.
    * The :version page now has a button to pastebin the

  * 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
    did before v0.8.0.
  * New :rl-unix-filename-rubout command which is similar to readline's
  * New fonts -> completion.category setting to customize the font used for
    completion category headers.
  * New :debug-log-capacity command to adjust how many lines are logged into RAM
    (to report bugs which are difficult to reproduce).
  * New hide-unmatched-rapid-hints option to not hide hint unmatched hint labels
    in rapid mode.
  * New {clipboard} and {primary} replacements for the commandline which
    replace the :paste command.
  * New :insert-text command to insert a given text into a field on the page,
    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 cast userscript to show a video on a Google Chromecast
  * New :run-with-count command which replaces the (undocumented) :count:command syntax.
  * New :record-macro (q) and :run-macro (@) commands for keyboard macros.
  * 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 hang when using multiple spaces in a row with the URL completion
  * qutebrowser now still starts with an incorrectly configured
  * Fixed crash when a userscript writes invalid unicode data to the FIFO
  * Fixed crash when a included HTML was not found

  * Fixed crash when doing :<space><enter>, another corner-case introduced in v0.8.0
  * Fixed :open-editor (<Ctrl-e>) on Windows
  * Fixed crash when setting general -> auto-save-interval to a too big value.
  * Fixed crash when using hints on Void Linux.
  * Fixed compatibility with Python 3.5.2+ on Debian unstable
  * Compatibility with pdfjs v1.6.210
  * :bind can now be used to bind to an alias (binding by editing keys.conf
    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
  * Fixed general -> private-browsing not being set correctly until a restart
    (which caused e.g. local storage to be enabled).
  * Fixed crash when using hints with JS disabled in some rare circumstances.
    When hinting input fields (:t), also consider input elements without a type.
  * Fixed crash when opening an invalid URL with a percent-encoded and a real @ in it

- Update to version 0.8.1 (changes since 0.7.0):
  * Add new ":repeat-command" command (mapped to ".") to repeat the
    last command.
    Note that two former default bundings conflict with that
    binding, unbinding them via ":unbind .i" and ":unbind .o" is
  * Add new "qute:bookmarks" page which displays all bookmarks and
  * Add new ":prompt-open-download" (bound to Ctrl-X) which can be
    used to open a download directly when getting the filename
  * Add new "{host}" replacement for tab- and window titles which
    evaluates to the current host.
  * Add new default binding ";t" for ":hint input".
  * Add new variables "$QUTE_CONFIG_DIR", "$QUTE_DATA_DIR" and
    "$QUTE_DOWNLOAD_DIR" available for userscripts.
  * Add new option "ui" -> "status-position" to configure the
    position of the status bar (top/bottom).
  * Add new "--pdf <filename>" argument for ":print" WHICH can be
    used to generate a PDF without a dialog.
  * ":scroll-perc" now prefers a count over the argument given to
    it, which means "gg" can be used with a count.
  * Aliases can now use ";;" to have an alias which executed
    multiple commands.
  * ":edit-url" now does nothing if the URL isn't changed in the
    spawned editor.
  * ":bookmark-add" can now be passed a URL and title to add that
    as a bookmark rather than the current page.
  * New "taskadd" userscript to add a taskwarrior task annotated
    with the current URL.
  * ":bookmark-del" and ":quickmark-del" now delete the current
    page's URL if none is given.
  * Fix compatibility with PyQt 5.7.
  * Fix some configuration values being lost when a config option
    gets removed from qutebrowser's code.
  * Fix a crash when downloading with a full drive.
  * Fix using ":jump-mark" (e.g. '') when the current URL is
    invalid doesn't crash anymore.
  * Fix a crash when pressing enter without a command.
  * Remove the ability to display status messages from webpages, as
    well as the related "ui" -> "display-statusbar-messages"
  * Remove the "general" -> "wrap-search" setting as searches now
    always wrap.
    According to a quick straw poll and prior crash logs, almost
    nobody is using "wrap-search = false", and turning off wrapping
    is not possible with QtWebEngine.
  * Remove ":edit-url" now doesn't accept a count anymore as its
    behaviour was confusing and it doesn't make much sense to add a

  * Add new ":set-mark" command to set a mark, bound to ```
  * Now the "'" mark gets set when moving away (hinting link with
    anchor, searching, etc.) so you can move back with "''".
  * Add new "--force-color" argument to force coloured logging even
    if stdout is not a terminal.
  * Add new ":messages" command to show error messages.
  * Add new pop-up showing possible keybinding when the first key
    of a keychain is pressed. This can be turned off using

     counted from the right.
  * ":yank" can now yank the pretty/decoded URL by adding "--pretty".

  * ":completion-item-del" (Ctrl-D) can now be used in ":buffer"
    completion to close a tab.
  * Counts can now be used with special keybindings (e.g. with
  * Various SSL ciphers are now disabled by default. With recent
    Qt/OpenSSL versions those already all are disabled, but with
    older versions they might not be.
  * Show favicons as window icon with tabs-are-windows set.

  * Improved behaviour when pasting multiple lines.
  * Rapid hints can now also be used for the normal hint target,
    which can be useful with javascript click handlers or
    checkboxes which don’t actually open a new page.
  * ":zoom-in" or ":zoom-out" (+/-) with a too large count now
    zooms to the smallest/largest zoom instead of doing nothing.
  * The commandline now accepts partially typed commands if they’re
  * Number hints are now kept filtered after following a hint in
    rapid mode.
  * Number hints are now renumbered after filtering.
  * Number hints can now be filtered with multiple space-separated
    search terms.
  * "hints -> scatter" is now ignored for number hints.
  * Better history implementation which also stores titles. As a
    consequence, URLs which redirect to another URL are now added to
    the history too, marked with an -r suffix to the timestamp field.
  * Fix using ":hint links spawn" with flags – you can now use
    things like the -v argument for ":spawn" or pass flags to the
    spawned commands.

  * Strip off trailing spaces for history entries with no title.

Sat May  7 07:12:54 UTC 2016 -

- Update to version 0.6.2:
  * Fix crash when using :tab-{prev,next,focus} right after closing
    the last tab with last-close set to close.
  * Fix crash when doing :undo in a new instance with
    tabs -> last-close set to default-page.
  * Fix crash when starting with --cachedir="".
