The difference is not in WebKitGTK version but in WebKit API version.
The former documentation is for WebKitGTK (GTK+ port of WebKit 1 API,
removed in WebKitGTK+ 2.6.0, that's why the doc comes from 2.4.5), the
latter for WebKit2GTK (GTK+ port of WebKit 2 API, considered stable
since WebKitGTK+ 2.0.0 and the only supported API nowadays).

WebKit1 is practically deprecated since WebKitGTK 2.0 and is no longer
supported (no bug and security fixes).

They seem to be the replacements, but not all methods from WebKit1
have been ported.
