Re: NetSurf 3.11 has been released!

@AMIGASYSTEM

Yeah, the graphics have never worked properly, that and some text issues stop me removing the beta tag.

@AMIGASYSTEM

Did you use the version from my link above? That works fine on HTTPS as long as you have AmiSSL 5.13 (that exact version) installed.

I think there's a bug on exit which causes crashing and strangeness which I've never been able to track down.

@daveyw

Yeah, it's always been like that, I don't think I can improve it. The area which has become visible is blank, and then it redraws it. I think the reason the delay is so noticeable is because it *redraws* not *refreshes*. So it takes a little longer rather than the entire page being drawn initially and then just blitted onto the screen. When the dynamic layout engine is done caching and redrawing the entire page in the background might make everything sluggish anyway.

@pjs

Weird, I'll look into it. Can you email me the logs in the meantime?

Actually, can you run it from the command line
NetSurf -v *>ram:ns.log and send me ns.log?

Hey all, I've uploaded the OS3 version to Aminet. It's working pretty well on my test OS 3.2.2.1 box - better than previous versions in fact.

@pjs

It should only be using guigfx on 8-bit screens. It copies a default config which makes it run on the WB screen, if that isn't set then it should prompt for a screen mode to open its own screen on. Try deleting users/(user)/Choices

Hi all betatesters having DNS issues.

Please can you try this version ==> www.cy2.uk/netsurf.lha

Let me know if it works or not!

Thanks!

This is very strange, it uses openssl rather than AmiSSL so the AmiSSL version installed is irrelevant.

There were some updates to a newer version of Curl recently, and since 3.10 it is also updated to OpenSSL 3

I don't see why it works for some people but not others (unless it is OS related, in which case anybody using a newer beta of OS4 probably needs to investigate, and maybe check the command line version of Curl to see if the latest does the same thing)

@nubechecorre

newlib comes with OS4. Maybe make sure your OS is fully up-to-date?

@redfox

That's because dynamic layout updates don't work yet, so the drop-down menus don't show up. Why would you want to log out anyway? 😉

Well, I can see it but it sticks on "follow requested".

@AmigaOldskooler

Can you enable the ActivityPub plugin on your blog?
https://wordpress.com/plugins/activitypub

You should then be visible on the Fediverse at @amigaos4gaming.wordpress.com@amigaos4gaming.wordpress.com (I think that's how it works)

OK, I'm obviously going mad. I could have sworn somebody else had built newer versions of webp.library, but turns out that the latest is the ancient version I wrote ten years ago.

It's worth noting that libwebp had a critical security flaw. This newer version should have it fixed, but anything using libwebp will need to be rebuilt with it.

The shared library version really needs an update too.

(usual caveat that hackers aren't likely to be targetting OS4/PPC but still sensible to update!)

It's a shame it's Synergy and not Barrier, I use Barrier on all my other machines.

@mcleppa

I think probably around here: https://github.com/chris-y/ipp-device/ ... ps/ipp_dev/ipp_dev.c#L950

That's where I'm opening the env-var for the config, so I think you could probably pop up a GUI to pick the printer at that point.

But according to the header, I last looked at this about ten years ago!

@walkero

Yes, the pwg-raster bit needs a proper printer driver.

There are three parts to AmigaOS printing:

1. printer.device - high-level interface that programs use to print

2. Device driver that printer.device uses to communicate with the printer. This could be parallel.device or, in your case, ipp.device (NB: my old ipp.device is here if it helps at all: https://github.com/chris-y/ipp-device)

3. Printer driver, eg. PostScript. This is the part which converts the output into printer language. In your case this would be pwg-raster.

So printer.device converts the output using the printer driver, and then sends it to the printer using the specified device driver.

In traditional land, it would convert to something like PCL and then use parallel.device to send to a parallel attached printer. In our modern scenario, it needs to convert to pwg-raster and then send using IPP. Your ipp.device might need a prefs editor which scans for devices if you want to use M-DNS/DNS-SD.

You need to manually edit/create the authentication file. There's a bug in Amiupdate which stops it creating the file. I'll have to have a look to see what it is called.

Source code is here:

It looks like I uploaded it back in 2020 for some reason.

One of the descriptors replaces the PNG datatype, so that might be in use, and reverting to the original descriptor is probably sensible.
