Apple is to reward some lucky users who took part in its WebKit Open Source Project with MacBook Pro Computers and all-expenses paid invitations to its Worldwide Developer’s Conference 2006.
Twelve MacBooks will be given to its top open source contributors, while another five will receive invites to the developer conference.
Apple started the WebKit Open Source Project in June 2005, inviting contributions from users globally. The contributions have helped Apple in developing future releases of Safari and WebKit.
Within its thank you note to contributors, Apple listed a handful of the improvements which non-Apple contributors have made. These include:
- The entire webkit.org infrastructure, including nightly builds and the buildbot
- Fixes that were formerly only in KHTML and KJS in the KDE source tree
- SVG support in WebKit
- Improved structure of DOM and auto-generated bindings inspired by KDOM
- Text layout and rendering improvements, including excellent right-to-left support
- A tremendous number of bug fixes
- Excellent test cases
- Pinpointed version numbers for regressions
