Severin, you are welcome to answer this thread as long as long as you dont write "No comment" or similar.. ;)

Ahum..

Ibrowse2.4 might arrive soon, ackording to the bug-watcher there is plenty of things going on with the development of Ibrowse 2.4. Anyone have information about any releasedate (or similar). Voyager is dead (?).. Awebs development seems slow and any news on Amyzilla?

Amiga OS needs a good browser for sure, and I hope the community buys and support software from those who codes.

As soon as he gets here, he might be able to answer on a
new release...

to mods: What is the right HTML code to enter URL's, i can't
use the button on the reply page so i have to type in the
code fragment myself, but it seems i'm missing something,
the fragment i used here, worked on AW.net and other forums

My wish is that Aweb and Ibrowse could join force togheter to bring us an only good browser.. I think that joining together could speed up the work in progress of the browser..

Joining commercial and non-commercial product?
Too many obstacles in the way imho. (I hope I'm wrong though)

Maybe mozilla on X11@OS4? Just a thought...

Hi Jack,

Same old, same old.

It's bloated to the sky!

A PPC AOS4.0 native browser with Java and CSS support is what we want.


Now that Java has gone completely open source, stuff should really be cooking for AOS4.0!!!

Could Java be recompiled for AOS4.0 PPC now?

Thinking again..
Yup, you have a huge point there: there's no chance to get flash plugin for mozilla on ppc.... So actually why bother? One who wants could launch mozilla form some Unix box using X11, or use RDesktop/VNC with Windblows box.

Jack.

24.11.06
As you could see in the CVS, I am in the progress of merging GLIB_oli
and MAIN. Most files are done already and most test cases work
(again). But still not all required files are commited.. and a lot of
files need to be removed, as they are now in the real glib directory.

gtk-mui/glib news

16.11.06
Just noticed, I did no updates for quite a while, sorry, as always ;).
My Servers are up again (the cheap box died one week, after I got my
new servers.. Harddisks are not really reliable these days.. I now
have two servers with RAID controllers each, maybe I should place one
in a different location..).

iconv.library

Up to now, gtk-mui, iconv and glib were static link libraries, which
leads to quite big executables, even for small programs. So I try to
understand, how AROS libraries work (or better, how to convert a unix
link library to an amiga library). I managed to get an iconv.library,
but the only thing it does, is to write core dumps.

gtk-mui

Long time ago, I created a branch in the CVS, so that I could test the
glib integration. In the main trunk, itix made some MorphOS and other
changes. For quite some time, I was not really motivated, to do the
boring, but the necessary merge . I started merging yesterday and it
seems, it's not too difficult. Most tests work with the new merged
version, but there are still some problems remaining.

Ol1 is one of the maintainers (if not the only) of the gtk to MUI project, which we need.
Otherwise there won't be a native gui for Amizilla

As i understand it, they drive on more than one street with porting, if it builds on AROS,
it won't take much to get it build on classic, if it builds on classic, they'll try on OS4

I hope i didn't mix it up, not following that close lately

I know that what i am going to say could be considered wrong but i think that to have a good modern browser, we should ask to someone with a lot of experience such as someone of the DevTeam of Amiga OS 4.0..

A good modern browser is IMHO a good startpoint for the amiga to comeback..

So i think that the Friedens and all the DevTeam of the AMIGA OS should consider this..

I really appreciate what all the programmers around the world are doing to update Aweb or to porting Mozilla on the amiga, but someone with experience and that could work hard during the day is needed to have that piece of software..

That' s my wish

On the contrary, are they actually coding much on it right now?

I mean, the new memory system is finished - is there much else to code?

Well I'm pinning all my Browser hopes on Paihia.

I sincerely hope Smithy hasn't lost heart. Xmas will soon be here and iirc Smithy reckoned it wouldnt be too long afterwards.

You wont get much more Os4 native than Paihia for a while.

hmmmm, a browser on an amiga that can surf windows coded website, yes that would be great, but will it happen 100%, not sure if it can be done anytime soon.

even my ppc mac has some troubles with some sites, because they want you to run windows/microsoft stuff....now that is a real pain in the bum!!!!!!

Well, 4.1 won't write itself.

Otherwise it would be a self-modifying code
