Software News : OWB 3.32
Posted by Rigo on 2011/4/25 17:50:00 (1763 reads) News by the same author

A new version of OWB (3.32) has been released by Joerg Strohmayer.

It can be found via AmiUpdate, on Joergs homepage and from os4depot.



The changes in this version are:

- Updated libcurl to 7.21.4 with threaded resolver.

- FAST_MOBILE_SCROLLING can be enabled by setting the tooltype FASTSCROLL.

- Added NETRC tooltype for using a libcurl .netrc file for HTTP authentication instead of requesters.

- Updated curl-ca-bundle.crt.

- Added COOKIENAME and COOKIEDOMAIN tooltypes. The example "COOKIENAME=~(__(utm([avxz]|xx)|gads|qca))" tooltype disables storing Google Analytics cookies (__utma, __utmv and __utmz), Google Website Optimizer (__utmx and __utmxx), DoubleClick (__gads) and Quantserve (__qca) cookies.

- Now forwards right mouse button clicks to the page even if the CONTEXTMENURMB tooltype is enabled.

- Disabled displaying the page source for now since it's currently crashing sometimes.

@Mrodfr

Stack-trace looks very-very close to the stack-traces which i have with Curl, when i build it with enabled DNS-resolver (what mean pthreads). In such crashlog there is not words about Pthreads (maybe Joerg remove them and replace them on Semaphores, dunno), but i also have crashes in bsdsocket library, and that was because of new curl with enabled threaded resolver.

Imho that can be the same problems.

Yes, the libcurl threaded resolver does not work on AmigaOS 4.1 latest public version. Me and MickJT have both observed problems with it - crashes in bsdsocket.library.

It's possible the problem has been fixed either in libcurl or bsdsocket.library, but if Mrodfr is getting the problem then it hasn't been fixed in libcurl - which leaves bsdsocket.library, and any fix there won't be public yet.

 Re: OWB 3.32
I did not use AmiUpdate. Downloaded and unachived the lha file myself into its own drawer. Start up and quit are slow and closing a tab is very slow. Other than that I do not see any DSI errors or other problems at the website mentioned earlier.

I have decided to stay with OWB 3.31 for now, because it is much faster than OWB 3.32 on my system.

 Re: OWB 3.32
@crhis
As i understand it can work: need to ./configure curl with dns-threading enabled, but later, in the code change all the phtreads calls on semaphores, etc.

For muiowb fab do the same and it works fine looks like on mos. Of course it can be that our problems not exactly in the mixing of pthreads+curl code, but even in the bsdsocket itself (even with usage of semaphores), but will see (i hope to worring about all of this in next few days, so will have all the answers).

There is libcurl 7.21.6 for now , but dunno if any of the fixed can help us.

And that crashes are not the last problem with dns-resolver , its sometime just crash/drop connection and driver it to busy-loop.

In other words, its all should be carefull rewriting in the httpreso.c or how that file called in curl, without pthreads, with semaphores, etc, etc. As well as file.c, to make amiga pathes works :)

I confirm the "meteofrance" website works on an up-to-date beta system.

I remember there was an update of Roadshow a while ago. I don't know if there's some relation.

Where can I get OWB 3.31? This new version sucks when closing Tabs or Exiting.

Can't wait for MUI-OWB.

I don't think he said anything wrong - do you want him to praise v3.32 for being very slow to close/quit?!?

v3.29 can be found here, although I've got a note that it has a nasty window-resizing bug:
http://aminet.net/package/comm/www/OWB

v3.30 or v3.31 (or v3.28) were the best versions IMHO.

 Re: OWB 3.32
Not at all, but it could have been worded a bit better "Sucks" and wishing for the MUI version is just a bit of a slap on the face for poor Joerg who has been immense for the Amiga community.

IMHO of course.

 Re: OWB 3.32
Thanks Jeorg for this last version. Now on to trying it out :)

EDIT: Tried it out for about an hour and didnt have any crashes whatever. The BIG plus is facebook now works much better and all other pages i visit. No locks, i didnt had to restart OWB just to get facebook running again. Normally i would restart at least 10 or more times in a hour. Only negative thing is the long wait while closing a tab.

So thanks again :) Ill be more on amiga from now on hopefully. More daily try.

Weird with so many different results. To me it just works better, no crashes, no DSI errors and it feels faster.

Just using AOS 4.1 upd 2 on an A1 G4 XE. Haven't closed the browser yet but closing tabs works as usual, not slow.

 Re: OWB 3.32
Well it wasn't meant to be a personal attack, but anyway since when is 'sucks' such a harsh word? Am sure Joerg is grown up enough to realise - yes that does suck Richard, am on the case.

@Mikey_C

I am sure I am not the only one who is more than a little surprised to see OWB still under development. Thought I'd read Joerg abandoned it months ago.

@djrikki

So if you put a lot of work into something and released it and someone said "it sucks" you wouldn't be hurt by it?

In case you don't understand, if you get a kid and he tries to play basketball someone says "he sucks" would it make you happy?

Are you able to understand this at all?

If you read what djrikki wrote, he did NOT say that OWB sucked. He said that it sucked *when* OWB took ages to close/exit. And I would agree with him. (The complaint he made was about the bug, not about OWB itself.)

I think about the only improvement he could have made to his post would be to have said "Thanks for the update... but it sucks when it takes ages when you close/exit. Any chance of a fix?"

Constructive criticism (as given by djrikki) should be acceptable, as long as it is not excessively harsh, nor repeated unnecessarily.

Maybe I overreacted, sorry about that. Critic is good, I agree but only if it's written in such a way that it isn't insulting. This isn't the worst that I've read by far but it could be improved.

@kas1e Regarding childs, that's not what I ment. Anyway I hope that noone will be harsh enough to make you cry about your ports . They are much appreciated by the way.

Imho enough :) It all was about that tabs at closing 100% cpu loading for many users , and that are suck (not joerg work suck, but bugs are suck). When joerg will fix it, then tabs closing will not suck :)

 Re: OWB 3.32
Thanks TheKorn

Deleting the cookies file also resolved the slow closing of tabs and slow closing of OWB itself for me as well. Startup is still a bit slow though.

I also changed the options to match my current options for OWB 3.31,
such as using a different home page,
DOWNLOADDIR=RAM:
COOKIEDB=RAM:cookieCollection.db

I have also noticed (like some others) that the bookmarks act differently. If I open a new tab and use one of my bookmarks, it goes there rather quickly, but if I try to use a bookmark on the current tab, OWB seems to ignore the bookmark I have selected, and does not go to the bookmarked webpage.

Solved the bookmark issue by removing () from

Seems to work as expected if the Tool type reads as follows

BOOKMARKCOMMAND=OWBAddressBook/AddressBook -%s
