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.

I verified that the installer slideshow is working in this week's Ubuntu 17.10 daily images (with webkit 2.16.2).

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.

Kacper, thank you for your feedback which helps make Ubuntu better.
Which specific version of webkit2gtk 2.16.2 did you test and on which Ubuntu release?
