- installed the latest Ubuntu 10.04 beta
   - initial testing indicates that swt/eclipse are working here similar to on Ubuntu 9.10

   - as of the latest nightly build the minimum required WebKitGTK+ version is 1.1.90, which the Ubuntu 10.04 beta has
   - instructions to use it: (note: will make this info available in a more visible public place)
      - add "Device.DEBUG = true" before instantiating first Browser, so native browser version will be printed to stdout
