Version 26.1 of the Emacs text editor is now available.

I tried configuring this new Emacs like

./configure '--with-xwidgets'

on a somewhat old (but still supported) Ubuntu 14.04 LTS release but encounter this error:

configure:12632: checking for WEBKIT
configure:12639: $PKG_CONFIG --exists --print-errors "$WEBKIT_MODULES"
Package webkit2gtk-4.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `webkit2gtk-4.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'webkit2gtk-4.0' found

There was no mention in the release notes that versions still in heavy use were being abandoned and that Emacs could only be built on brand-new Linux releases.

This system comes with libwebkitgtk-3.0-dev. It is prohibitive to attempt to install anything newer since the whole software stack would need to be replaced.
