Sorry no-one has replied earlier. The reason is that generally we are
not attempting to port to WebKit 2, mainly for its lack of Windows
support. Gary is working on an alternate widget, talkatu, It is
generally functional, though some formatting is not yet available, and
there are probably small quirks and incompatibilities. We are
currently working on replacing the many WebKit widgets with talkatu

Talkatu can be found here: https://bitbucket.org/pidgin/talkatu
You can also find a (probably incomplete) todo list on the Trello
board here: https://trello.com/b/4ZBlhJFd/pidgin
