It appears that IE 10 supports HTML 5 history. However, the git version of Wt (3.3.0-30-ga7f27d8) requests an IE 9 compaitibility mode that prevents it from being used. This is not a serious issue since Wt falls back to tracking history with URLs containing fragment identifiers (starting with "#").

I've atteched a patch that enables native history support in IE 10. It adds minimal support for recognizing IE10 and using it in native mode. It also removes some vestigial VML support that I was originally concerned might cause IE to choose a compatibility mode. The patch has only been lightly tested and it is certainly possible that the change in compatibility mode might break other functionality.

Attached an update for git version 3.3.0-32-ga20ef3f, which also includes a patch for WApplication.C that was missed earlier.

This feature is available in recent versions of Wt, so the report can be closed. Thanks!
