Amiga Events : Just in time for Christmas. IBrowse 2.4 is released.
Posted by Mikey_C on 2006/12/22 20:58:38 (2118 reads) News by the same author

IOSPIRIT are proud to announce that the new version of IBrowse 2.4 available now from their brand new website.

Visit now. http://amiga.iospirit.de/



22.12.2006 IBrowse 2.4 immediately available

Original press release from the IBrowse developer team

LUND, Sweden, 22nd December 2006 - Stefan Burström and the IBrowse Team are pleased to announce the immediate release of the much anticipated update to IBrowse 2.3.

IBrowse 2.4 brings web browsing on AmigaOS to a new level - below is a very brief summary of the changes since version 2.3:

* New integrated Search Bar, allowing you to easily perform searches of your favourite sites. Search engines can be added manually or automatically via the Mycroft project site

* The Status Bar has been overhauled to optionally provide the status of IBrowse graphically. Due to requiring less space than text, this has allowed us to show additional statuses such as when Javascript is being processed

* Plugin API system for embedded objects based on the v4 NPAPI (Netscape Plugin API) to allow for easier porting of NS compatible plugins, this is used to allow IBrowse to display embedded objects (such as flash animations) within the browser when a suitable plugin is available.

* Support for AmiSSLv3 has been added to IBrowse 2.4, allowing the use of the most up to date SSL implementation available for AmigaOS.

* Context sensitive mouse pointers have been added, providing different mouse pointers in different areas of IBrowse.

* Background tab loading has finally been added to the Browser Tabs. Links can be opened in new browsers which remain inactive, allowing you to continue browsing the original page uninterrupted.

* The spoofing engine has been totally re-written for 2.4, and provides a range of pre-defined spoofing options.

* The JavaScript engine has been improved yet further providing support for more event handlers, and improved DOM support, along with some significant speed increases in certain areas. It now supports the complete JavaScript 1.6 extension, as found in Firefox 2.0, along with the majority of JavaScript 1.5 and the revision 3 of the ECMAScript (ECMA-262) specification.

* HTTP compressed content support has been added, which includes both gzip and deflate algorithms.

* On websites which ask for a username and password in a HTML based form, IBrowse can now (optionally) save these details for future visits.

* Web Advert Control Language (WACL) is a feature of IBrowse based on a proposal by Stefan Stuntz for a user configurable, flexible scripting language to control the display of adverts on webpages.

* Improved general stability and memory leaks plugged.

* Hundreds of other minor and major bug fixes + improvements, and increased tolerance of broken sites for better compatibility.

All these improvements greatly improve the browsing experience, and allow IBrowse to offer compatibility with many more websites than before.

IBrowse 2.4 is available from IOSPIRIT - to purchase, please visit http://amiga.iospirit.de/ (registered users of IBrowse 2.x can upgrade for free, and there is a special upgrade price available to registered IBrowse 1.x users).

 Re: Just in time for Christmas. IBrowse 2.4 is released.
Fantastic! :)

What an excellent Christmas present! Great work,
I'm still exploring the new options but you guys
deserve a relaxing break now after all your hard
work!

BTW: If registered IBrowse OS4 users are having
problems with a Grim on startup then do the
following:

In Workbench Prefs select Compatibility, press
Add and select the IBrowse executable. This
means no JIT, but it works fine.

Are you using OS4 and are you a registered IBrowse
user? If so then my above post might help!

Edit - Cool - it did!

 Re: Just in time for Christmas. IBrowse 2.4 is released.
Registered today! Phoar, goodbye christmas money! But its worth it. For two reasons:

1. Most of my computer usage is using the web, so having a more advanced browser is nearly like having a brand new computer again. I'm really enjoying the added stability and working javascript. :)

2. I'm hoping the registrations will help motivate the IBrowse dudes to work on v3.0 now..

Thank you to all concerned. :)

Great

Just a quick note to say that the JIT problem doesn't happen on OS4 Beta, so once OS4 final is released, you can run it under JIT.

Why this is a "event" and not a "software news"


@IBrowse team

Do you plan to start working on CSS now?

Boy oh boy, what a Christmas present! Absolutely fantastic! I haven't had a really good chance to put it through it's paces as I am on nights until Christmas day (sleeping by day working at night) but will soon give it a good go

Well done the IBrowse team

PS: Expect a full detailed review in the next issue of Total Amiga magazine
