qutebrowser v1.0.0 is coming closer

just a quick update to let you know that the last one of four big changes is now done:

  • [x] The new completion, based on sqlite
  • [x] The new config system
  • [x] Dropping legacy support
  • [x] Making QtWebEngine the default backend

If QtWebEngine can't be used on your system for some reason, you'll get a message about it. If it can, it'll automatically use that unless you set the "backend" setting to "webkit".

I still hope to get v1.0.0 with all this out in mid-November, before Firefox 57 is released - if possible, with some initial form of per-domain settings!

If you find any issues or need help, please let me know!
