We've asked WebKit developers whether it would be appropriate to integrate now, but that branch of WebKit is not yet stable—which means that we would introduce lots of new crashes and rendering issues to OmniWeb if we were to integrate it now.

We plan to ship 5.7 soon, so it doesn't make sense to switch to a new, unstable version of WebKit and potentially delay 5.7 for months and months while Apple works out the kinks in WebKit. (We saw this happen when we prematurely integrated the latest, unstable version of WebKit into OmniWeb 5.6.) But we do plan to integrate the new WebKit into our sneaky peek builds after we release 5.7.
