Software News : Odyssey Web Browser Public Source Code Repository
Posted by kas1e on 2016/1/7 13:21:19 (1546 reads) News by the same author
Software News

Deadwood would like to invite interested developers from all platforms to join the Odyssey Web Browser development.

The repository is public, available to everyone and located on GitHub:


The repository contains the latest version of Odyssey (1.25) which:

- is a continuation of Fab's 1.24 code base
- is rebased directly on WebKit engine (no longer uses Orygin proxy layer that 1.24 used) for easier integration of new engine versions
- uses WebKit revision 187682 (end of July version)
- is rebuild to support multi-platform development in build configuration and source code

If you are interested in developing a feature in Odyssey, no matter how small, or fixing a bug, no matter how trivial, contact me via email at deadwood@wp.pl. Don't worry - everybody had to start somewhere! I will help you understand the code base, build process and development approach.

Please spread the news!

 Please give a support for new Odyssey!
Deadwood is great developer. And now AROS has the most updated and current Odyssey in the world of Amiga. In my opinion all NG systems must have a new OWB, modern OS without good browser is nothing. Can we do it beyond divisions between camps? We need it!

Guys its easy for us to say co operate in the camps and they are already doing so however... alot of lies one camp said about the other probably can never be forgiven..

 Re: wars
Yes I understand this. But now we have different times, different situation. If not in OS world we should at least collaborating in some main software like Odyssey.

All this talk about cooperation, yet all I see is people creating division, by diverting the discussion away from Odyssey :)

 nor cooperation nor wars
Guys, thank you all for everything you are doing. All your work does not get unnoticed. That being said, there are two issues that must always stand before our eyes and everybody are involved both developers and users such as myself: 1. Resources are scarce both from a human point of view and a financial one (combined as a community and individually). 2. The Amiga world eventhough from time to time is perceived as seperated from other spheres is not and the way things operate outside affect us. I don't think Webkit is the way. Chrome which uses it is nothing more than a glorified Google/Facebook browser. It is not suited for current and future uses. We as amigans or the Amiga in itself have much more in common with Mozilla and everything that came out of it. Granted, Mozilla's decisions in the last few years in the face of competition weren't steller and the last decision is not an exception with the discontinuation of developing and supporting Thunderbird. However as amigans we can be somewhat forgiving for making bad decisions... In spite of all that, an app like Firefox is still the best option for us because it is a platform in itself, either via it being a good web app all-around or the add-ons that come with it. Thunderbird comes with the ability to chat through known protocols (was the last app to get dropped by Facebook) and it has a very good rss reader. Everyhing together makes for a complete suite as it is necessary on the basic A1 scene. It seems to me that the AmigaOne years always had one "heavy" broswer and a lighter one and more efficient. Netsurf is not there yet and it can't manage being a go-to web app for us or as I hoped it would be. Oddysey while doing its job and also being kinda fast has many issues and the current version doesn't like java very much, which is an issue that will only get worse. One consolidating effort in a Mozilla suite could be the answer for basic web support and is a must for current and future uses.
