WinCairo Intent to Deprecate WebKitLegacy

# Don.Olmstead at sony.com (2 days ago)

Since taking over development of the WinCairo port we've made a lot of good progress with enabling Modern WebKit on Windows. Because of that we plan on beginning to remove support of WebKitLegacy on the WinCairo port and switch to a fully Modern WebKit implementation. This will enable us to use new web features such as Service Workers which are unavailable through WebKitLegacy.

In the near future we plan on moving our bots to using WebKitTestRunner for testing WinCairo. After that is completed we will be working on removing WebKitLegacy from the WinCairo build. I've made a tracking bug at bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=194904 for the work around this plan and we will update it as work continues towards this goal. If you are using WinCairo in your product we ask that you subscribe to that bug and engage with us there.

Thanks, Sony WebKit Team
