Subject: WebKit future planning

We are developing application that uses Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF). 
Application supports Win, OSX and Linux.
We want to switch to JavaFx WebView.
The major things that concern us:
1) WebKit removed support for Windows acording to
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=106264 and
Question: What is the plan for JavaFx browser support for Windows OS in future?
[This wont impact our JavaFX WebView support on Windows OS, Above two defects is for multi process model but our existing webkit port is based on non Webkit2]

2) JavaFX uses WebView based on WebKit 538.19 (released on February 2014). 
Is there a plan to update WebKit version?
[Yes, we are in process of merging latest trunk (webkit.org) to our WebView]
