Software News : NetSurf 3.4 released!
Posted by Chris on 2016/2/22 8:00:00 (1198 reads) News by the same author
Software News

NetSurf is a small, fast CSS capable web browser for AmigaOS and other platforms.

NetSurf 3.4 features many optimisations to improve performance over previous releases. It also contains many bug fixes, including improvements to page layout. This is also the first release to contain the Duktape JavaScript engine. While our JavaScript bindings have seen a lot of development for this release, JavaScript remains disabled by default as the support is incomplete. We recommend all users upgrade to NetSurf 3.4.

*** Download (AmigaOS 4) ***

Additionally I have released a beta version of an AmigaOS 3.5+ build based on the AmigaOS 4 native frontend. I need help to improve this. Download (AmigaOS 3.5/9)

Working really well! It seems a lot better (faster) than I remember previous versions. The rendering seems to be really good too. Thanks Chris!

@PEB

There has been a significant speed-up in page processing due to some changes in how CSS hints are handled. In addition, where I've been playing around with an OS3 version I've optimised bits of the frontend. I've seen noticeable improvement with these changes, and there have been a fair few smaller optimisations too.

 Re: NetSurf 3.4 released!
Hi Chris,
Layout at eBay seems better than previous to 3.4, ditto for the front page of foxnews.com. However a subpage at Foxnews had partial lines of text laid out on top of other text. Sorry I don't have the particulars, it happened this morning after I installed 3.4.

Generally a noticeable improvement though.

Paul

The speed-up is really noticeable on my Sam440ep-Flex @ 667 MHz.

Supported already, but I'd entirely forgotten!
It should update now (I might have put the wrong date in, so if it keeps bugging about incorrect dates please shout at me).
