Bug Description

Impact
------
WebKitGTK 2.16.2 is here:

https://webkitgtk.org/2017/05/09/webkitgtk2.16.2-released.html

Please update Zesty (17.04) with this release. Thanks!

The first part of the changelog (the fix for Google new's login and the new YouTube) (LP: #1687019) was already backported to Ubuntu so that we could get that high priority fix to Ubuntu users faster.

Test Case
---------
1. Check a recent Ubuntu 17.10 daily build that has webkit2gtk 2.16.2 to ensure the installer slideshow works.

2. Make sure that epiphany-browser, evolution and yelp still work since historically they used some of webkit2gtk's internal API.

Regression Potential
--------------------
Last year, a minor WebKit release in Ubuntu's development release had some regressions which broke our installer slideshow (LP: #1618956) so now we specifically check that.

Other Info
----------
This update did cause sphinx's autopkgtests to fail (LP: #1690574). But that appears to have been because of a bug in those autopkgtests and is unlikely to affect anything else.

sphinx has been fixed now and its SRUs have been accepted into -updates.

I was experiencing crashes of Geary master with webkit2gtk-2.16.1. Geary built with updated package (webkit2gtk-2.16.2) works stable for me. It fixes my problem.
