Software News : NetSurf 2.9
Posted by Chris on 2012/4/15 11:24:04 (1189 reads) News by the same author
Software News

NetSurf 2.9 is a small, fast, CSS capable web browser for AmigaOS 4.1. It sports an OS4 native GUI and does not require AmiCygnix. The OS4 code is not related to NetSurf-68k, which in turn is not representative of the user interface of NetSurf on any other platform.

Due to a delay, I have uploaded a "pre-release" version of NetSurf 2.9. This may be subject to minor changes before the official release.


Download here

Notes:
The redraw method has been changed to conserve graphics memory, and the default options are set so users with low amounts of graphics card memory can enjoy NetSurf. Consequently performance can be improved by doing one or both of the following:
(a) Toggling "Cache native versions" in the Rendering tab of NetSurf's configuration, to "All".
(b) Increasing the values of redraw_tile_size_x and redraw_tile_size_y in Resources/Options, or setting them to 0.
There are further suggestions in the "optimising for speed" section of NetSurf.guide, included in the distribution.

For more information, see http://www.netsurf-browser.org and the ChangeLog in the archive.

 Re: NetSurf 2.9
Thanks to this new release! Works up to now really nice - just oe remark:

In my SObjs: drawer libpng.so is linked to libpng.15.so, which Netsurf 2.9 doesn't like. I just copied the supplied libpng.12.so into the Netsurf root drawer to circumvent this.

Anything that uses Cairo won't like that. Our version of libcairo looks for libpng.so but doesn't work with libpng 1.4 or higher. Hence you *must* have libpng.so linked to libpng12.so.

Just put the sobjs in a NetSurf directory (Sobjs) and load them from there to eliminate any confusion. In fact, put the Amiga libraries in a NetSurf directory too. Why crowd the SYS: partition with libraries that only one program will use?

libcairo is part of the OS, as is libpng12 (I include a newer build of libpng12 due to bugs in the OS shipped version). If I'd put the SObjs into NetSurf's directory this issue would still have occured, as libcairo would still have been in SObjs: and does not work with libpng 1.4+.

There's nothing to stop other programs from using them, even if nothing else on AmigaOS does yet (excluding nsbmp.library, iconv.library and the non-NetSurf SObjs). In fact, I uploaded the includes for hubbub.library and parserutils.library last week.

If they were private libraries with no public API I'd agree with you.

Coders, please be aware that the clib function
strncpy() does not guarantee nul-termination,
you need strlcpy() for where it is being used instead.
