- make the root api more canvas like (first version done, we are
trying how it works, first results are positive)
- new very cool deprication mechanism
- full ruby support (backported to 2.6b1)
- even more html elements (backported to 2.6b1)
- WAAnchorTag >> #tooltip has been removed (use #title instead)
- WAListener fixes (backported to 2.6b1)
- other fixes and convenience methods
