Odyssey 1.23 r4 - AmigaOS4


New in r4 in compare with r3 release:

-- backported deadwood's fixes from 1.25:
     - fixed major memory leak where Frames were not released together with
their JS data - memory no longer continuously consumed while browsing
     - fixed a number of small memory leaks
     - fix for cookies, which make login to youtube, blogger and some others
works again.
-- build against newer libssl 1.0.1q (solved Heardbleed issues, as well as give
ability to use some https sites again)
-- fixed proxy server settings (thanks Thore): str_proxyusername and
str_proxypassword get the same ID before, and settings applied to two object
with different tasks
-- updated codesets.library to the latest one (at moment 6.19)
-- updated curl-ca-bundle.crt (https://curl.haxx.se/ca/cacert.pem , Apr 20
03:12:05 2016)



New in r3 in compare with r2 release:

-- registered via application.library (which mean odyssey will have all tasty
bonuses in future from OS).
-- added tasty ringhio notifications for downloads (download, abort and fail)
-- added support of os4's urlopen as default and openurl as fallback. 
-- change "Amiga" on "Macintosh" in the user agent back , as it was originally
on morphos. So sites which think that Amiga are mobile, will works in full mode
by default now (like google.com for example).
-- fixed few minor typos in About box 
-- fixed long-standing and problematic bug : locale agnostic accept-language
headers. Before (since first 1.9 port), it was just all the time EN. So, all the
locale-agnostic sites you visit always was in English by default. Now, depends
on what your prefs:locale settings is, odyssey will produce correct
accept-language header , as it was on morphos since 1.2 version. Also it was
improved further for os4 port: added priority options as described in RFC (more
sites will detect langauges properly), as well as priority list of locales in
your prefs:locale are taken in account when constructed priorities values in
accept-language header.
-- updated till latest (6.18 at moment) codeset.library

New in r2 in compare with first release:

- fixed old info in the about/error html
- fixed readme.info which point to appdir:codepad
- fixed iconify with default mui icon, and not with odyssey's one
- fixed window title which still shows OWB rather than Odyssey
- fixed double "http://http://" in the About window.
- fixed arexx port: so it is ODYSSEY now, and not OWB (to avoid conflicts with
Joerg's OWB).
- fixed "launcher exit by timeout", as it didn't find rexx port
- fixed non working "ignore ssl erros" caused by too recent curl
- fixed network stalls on some configs which also caused by too recent url.
- new catalogs: italian, spanish, german, polish and dutch(netherlands)
- new icons from Mason: inspector, bookmarks and media ones converted by Javier
- include latest on 2014.03.29 youtube scripts from fab's page
- include latest on 2014.03.29 codesets.library.

Requirements
------------

AmigaOS4.1 update6 + latest MUI4 (http://muidev.de)

Full version requires at least 55MB of free memory and potentially much more
depending on visited
sites.

Usage
-----

- First run (IMPORTANT! READ!)

  At *first* run, Odyssey will index your truetype fonts directory
(fonts:_TrueType and
  fonts:_ttf by default). This operation can take a long time (expect a few
minutes on low end sams).
  Once it's done, a conf/font/fonts-<hash>.cache file is created for each
configured font directory.

  If you wish to use another truetype font directory, please edit
conf/font/fonts.conf
  and change the <dir> attribute. By default, it's:

  ...
  <!-- Font directory list -->
	  <dir>fonts:_TrueType</dir>
	  <dir>fonts:_ttf</dir>
  ...

  You can add additional directories by adding a <dir>..</dir> line.

  I strongly advise to use Microsoft fonts instead of default fonts:_ttf that
aren't
  really suited for web use. Just run the "Download Fonts" script supplied with
Odyssey. 
  Once it's done, I also advise removing "<dir>fonts/_ttf</dir>" from fonts.conf
files to
  reduce substitution times.

  To use japanese fonts or anything else, just add relevant fonts in the
configured
  font directory. Please note that japanese fonts can slow down rendering quite
a lot.

- Settings
  + General
	Homepage, startpage and shell output window (useful for external actions).

  + Interface
	Toolbar, autocompletion modes, favicons, quicklink layout, ...

  + Contextual Menus
	Custom actions can be configured for link, page and image menus. For instance,
you can link
	a video/audio player to a link, or getvideo to play youtube content.

  + Mimetypes
	Each mimetype can be configured to trigger a specific action: view with
browser, download or
	display with an external viewer. That's the place to configure if you have some
issues with
	downloading direct links, for instance.

  + Content
	Cache model, content blocking, animation/picture/javascript activation, ...

  + Fonts
	Size and font families can be configured. For much finer configuration, see
conf/font/fonts.conf.

  + Network
	User agent, number of simultaneous connections, proxy settings.

  + Download
	Download directory and download manager behaviour.

  + Privacy
	Settings for session, history, cookies, local storage, form credentials, form
completion...

  + Security
	SSL settings

  + Media
	Settings for H264 filter mode, fast seeking and WEBM/VP8 codec.

- Some additional exotic settings are only available through env vars at the
  moment (they will end in regular settings later, if they still make sense):
  HTTP_PROXY                     [proxy address string] - specifies the proxy
address to use
  OWB_USER_AGENT                 [user agent string] - overrides the user agent
configured in settings
  OWB_POLLTIME                   [value in milliseconds (default is 10ms)] - can
help increasing network speed (the lower, the faster).
  OWB_BENCHMARK                  prints timing information in debuglog about
rendering process
  OWB_NO_STATIC_BACKGROUND       ignores background "fixed" CSS attribute
(interesting on slower machines)
  OWB_CURL_DEBUG                 prints CURL debug (HTTP requests, answers and
connection management)
  OWB_CURL_FORBID_REUSE          prevents CURL from keeping request connections
alive and re-using them (slower but more bullet-proof)
  OWB_CURL_FORBID_ENCODING       disables gzip support (can help in some
situations for some rare buggy sites). 
  OWB_DISABLE_MOBILE_COMPRESSION disables cache, which as a consequence prevents
some particular mobile provider/proxies from sending compressed content.
  OWB_NO_PERIODIC_COLLECT        disables javascript periodic garbage
collection.    

- Bookmarks
  Odyssey can import IBrowse bookmarks. Just copy it to Odyssey directory as
bookmarks.html.
  If you wish to make an entry appear in fastlinks or pulldown menu, just check
  the relevant option in bookmark editor. Also note you can drag'n'drop links
  between many different elements of the GUI.

- REXX port
  OPEN         NAME/K,NEWPAGE/S,BACKGROUND/S,SOURCE/S
  RELOAD
  BACK
  FORWARD
  SAVEURL      URL/A,AS/K
  ADDBOOKMARK  TITLE/A,URL/A,ALIAS/K,MENU/S,QUICKLINK/S
  GETURL
  SELECTEDTEXT

- OpenURL configuration
  Rexx Port: Odyssey
  Show:SHOW
  Screen To Front: SCREENTOFRONT
  Open: OPEN NAME="%u"
  Open in new window: OPEN NAME="%u" NEWPAGE

  Remember, when you write your own scripts, skip "=". I.e:

  To open in current window: 
  ram:> rx "address odyssey.1; OPEN NAME 'http://google.com'" 

  To open in new tab: 
  ram:> rx "address odyssey.1; OPEN NAME 'http://google.com' NEWPAGE" 

  Script example: 
  /**/ 
  Address Odyssey.1 
  OPEN NAME "http://google.co.uk" 
  Say "Done" 


Youtube special notes
---------------------

  There are a few things to know about Youtube, since it tends to change
  (or rather break) quite often.

  Youtube introduced a new way to play media without using Flash: HTML5 video.
  This service isn't enabled by default nor autodetected, so it has to be
  enabled by going to http://www.youtube.com/html5 and clicking the subscription
  link (no account needed, only a cookie will be set).

  There are a few more important elements to consider:
  - Youtube broke the fullscreen mode that worked just nicely before, so a
script is needed
    to workaround this. This is done by going to Windows->Scripts and adding the

    "Scripts/youtube_fullcreen_fix.js" userscript. This fullscreen mode is
particularly 
    important, since Odyssey uses overlay output in this mode, which makes it
about 3 times 
    faster, synchronized on VBL, and smoother as well, compared to windowed
mode.
    
    !!--NOTE--
    AmigaOS4 port do not support full screen playback currently, probably in
next versions.
    !!--NOTE--

  - Not all Youtube links are available as HTML5 yet. Fortunately, there's a way

    to "convert" the remaining Flash-only links to HTML5 by adding the
"Script/Youtube.js" 
    script in Windows->Scripts. When this script is enabled, the Flash element
on Youtube 
    is removed, the video direct URLs are retrieved, and a HTML5 <video> tag is
added, 
    playing the video file, without Flash. Direct links to the video are also
displayed 
    below the video. Please note that if the Flash plugin is not installed, a
"Get Flash" 
    message will be shown over the video, and will also prevent the video from
being started
    automatically, which means one of the links below the video will have to be
clicked to 
    play the video. Also note that format "18" (mp4) is the most efficient one,
since FLV 
    ones can have some speed and synchronisation issue when seeking.

  - Since Youtube can break stuff anytime, be sure to check for updated
userscripts in 
	http://fabportnawak.free.fr/owb/scripts/ if something broke.


Preempted rants
---------------

- It takes ages to start!
  -> It only happens at first start or when you update your fonts.
     Current Odyssey version uses FontConfig, which is quite slow at indexing.
     After that, it should start in a second or so.

- It's slow!
  -> Odyssey is based on WebKit and this version uses Cairo to render. Modern
     browsers tend to be a bit heavier than our good old browsers. :)
     That said, there's still room for optimization, especially regarding
     cairo rendering speed.

- It's too memory-hungry!
  -> See above. Also note that WebKit will often crash *voluntarily* when
     running out of memory, instead of taking alternative measures. I could
     avoid some of these crashes (like too large document/image allocations),
     but it's quite impossible to fix WebKit everywhere.

- Some SSL websites show a certificate error requester!
  -> Maybe they're not certified. You can either update "curl-ca-bundle.crt"
file,
     or ignore SSL errors by enabling "Ignore SSL errors" in Settings/Security.

- It crashes!
  -> Odyssey is fairly stable (as long as you have enough memory, like most
posix 
     application nowadays unfortunately...). If you get a reproducible crash
     (unrelated to memory usage), send me a debug log.

- Odyssey hits/crashes when opening more than n tabs.
  -> known bug in MUI, which was fixed in MorphOS 2.3. For previous versions,
     it can be avoided by just unchecking system prefs->Debug->MUI->Error
     checkmark (the error was caused by MUI debug routine).

- I get no sound in HTML5 playback! / Odyssey locks audio hardware!
  -> Audio output uses AHI music unit at the moment, which is unfortunately
exclusive.
     It's still possible to play several sounds at once (and avoid blocking
audio hardware)
     with device.audio, by setting AHI music unit to: "Unit 0: <mode>" in system
preferences.


What's missing and might be supported in next versions
------------------------------------------------------

- History with nicer sorting options
- Certificate (SSL) manager
- More configurable UI elements
... and probably more...


History
-------

- 25.12.2013: Odyssey Web Browser 1.23

  - Fixed a nasty race condition in the ffmpeg version supplied since 1.21.

##############################################################################

- 20.12.2013: Odyssey Web Browser 1.22

  - Fixed the slowness issue with topsites, when adblock was enabled. In that
case, the generated
    screenshot data: URI (which is basically the screenshot raw data encoded as
base64)
    was matched against the rules in adblock, which was obviously very slow.
  - For security reasons, file:/// URL couldn't be accessed from topsites. Fixed
as well.

##############################################################################

- 10.12.2013: Odyssey Web Browser 1.21.

Core:
  - Updated to WebKit r155188 (October 2013) : big changes (and thus regressions
:))
    happened in many parts of WebKit since previous Odyssey release (clipboard, 
    drag'n'drop, network, javascript, inspector, c++0x requirements, ...). They 
    should hopefully all be addressed.
  - Updated to the new Webinspector layout. 
  - Fixed the layout of the FTP listing, so that the rows don't use all the 
    available vertical space.
  - Fixed a crash with self-disposing <select> objects (e.g priority cycle 
    in MLDonkey Web interface).
  - Localstorage databases (conf/localstorage/#?.localstorage) were not released
at 
    exit, which prevented from deleting them manually.
  - Disabled non functional HTML5 MediaSource (it should help with some
non-working
    YouTube links in HTML5 mode).
  - Fixed a bug with the "view source code" function that would sometimes just
show 
    a blank view.
  - The mimetype actions would not always be triggered properly in some cases
(mainly 
    because of redirections or content-disposition header). The response URL (or

    content-disposition filename if available) is now used when extension
matching is needed.
  - Added more common mimetype extensions in mimetype default configuration.
  - Fixed a potential race condition at webview closing.
    
GUI:
  - Contextual cursor was sometimes not reset to normal cursor when leaving 
    the webview area.
  - Added proxy support in network prefs section.
  - If webinspector is enabled, webinspector button is now also shown in 
    navigation toolbar.
  - Added "TopSites" feature, showing most recently visited sites thumbnails.
This
    page can be accessed from "topsites://" URL. Feel free to make suggestions
about 
    this new option. :)
  - Ambient deficons are now shown in file input controls (MorphOS 3.4+
required).
  - Ambient deficons are now shown in download manager lists (MorphOS 3.4+
required).
  - Select all the text in the search string when searching for text in a page.
  - Close google and history suggestion popup lists when the text is fully
erased.
  - Added a "start downloads automatically" option, which allows to skip the 
    file requester step.
  - Added a status icon to indicate if userscripts are running on a given page.
    The bubble help on this icon also shows which userscripts are actually
running.
  - In bookmarks window, quicklinks favicons and URL are now displayed, to make
    it easier to create and identify title-less quick links.
  - Added support for multiple selection with file input elements.
  - Show FTP URL as window/tab title, instead of a blank title.
  - In image views, show the image filename instead of "unnamed title".
  - Implemented HTML5 ColorChooser dialog, using MUI Colorwheel.
  - Added a filename popup gadget for mimetype viewer.
  - Added a new page URL option (defaults to topsites://).
  - Also show column number in javascript error/warning messages.

Media player:
  - Updated to ffmpeg from 27.11.2013.  
  - Enabled support for VP9 codec.
  - Audio-only media could sometimes report a null duration : in practice,
    it fixes a hard crash with Facebook chat audio notifications.
  - Fixed a 32bits overflow with audio-only media: the visible effect was
    that the player would stop updating time controls at 2:32.
  - Added more sanity checks in ffmpeg support.

Network:
  - Reimplemented HTTP authentication to be more compliant. It should also 
    fix a crash that happened when cancelling the authentication requester in
    some cases. 
  - Added support for multipart contents. 
  - Fixed potential crashes with data: URI handling.
  - Fixed an illegal memory access that would sometimes happen at exit, when FTP
was used.

Spellchecker:
  - Misspelled words are now underlined in red instead of black.
  
Scripts:
  - Updated YouTube_Fullscreen_Fix.js: fullscreen mode should work again. It
also replaces
    all youtube links in right column so that the page is reloaded when clicking
them, allowing
    the script to be executed again.

##############################################################################
  
- 10.03.2013: Odyssey Web Browser 1.20.
  - Updated to WebKit r144529 (March 2013). Amongst many other fixes, it cures
an issue with some asp sites.

  - Updated to cURL 7.28.1.
  - Totally rewritten cookie system, which should be more robust and compliant 
    to specifications. The database structure has changed, so all previous
cookies 
    will be ignored and a new database will be created instead (in
conf/cookies.db).
  - Fixed some issue with back/forward navigation buttons that could be wrongly
ghosted
    with frame-based sites.
  - Make WebInspector custom contextmenu work again.
  - Make cookies appear properly in WebInspector
  - Make sure the garbage collector is called periodically and/or when memory
gets too low.
  - Fixed a crash with websockets where the class client disposed the connection
by itself.

  - Updated to Cairo 1.12 and Pixman 0.24.4: gives about 40% speedup in
rendering.
  - Updated to ICU 4.9.1: the data files are now stored externally in 
    PROGDIR:resource/icudt49b/ to save some memory. Make sure to copy them if
you 
    update (a requester will warn you if you don't).
  - Updated to OpenSSL 1.0.0j.
  - Updated to Curl 7.25.0.
  - Updated to FFMPEG GIT from 13.05.2012.
  - Updated to SQLite 3.7.11.

  - History completion popup is now multithreaded, which fixes a latency issue
when 
    typing the URL. 
  - Implemented form filling completion feature. It can be enabled in
prefs->privacy settings.
    Note that calltips.mcc is required, which is included with MorphOS 3+ or 2.x
SDK
    with Scribble.
  - The "add bookmark" button now has two states, to indicate whether the
current 
    URL is already bookmarked or not.
  - Adding a bookmark from the browser window now always adds it to the end of 
    the bookmarks, and no longer at the end of the currently selected group.
  - Added Back/Forward/Reload/Stop in view menu.
  - The password from the URL is now removed if present, when setting the
comment
    of a downloaded file.    
  - Fixed the "Open in new window" function that didn't work anymore in 1.16 due

    to the new popup policy option.
  - Fixed attachments not working anymore in GMail.
  - Fixed again AltGr key handling for GoogleDocs.
  - Fixed pasting from clipboard when multiple text chunks are used (YAM does
it).
  - Escape unwanted characters in bookmarks URLs, aliases and titles.  
  - Prune favicons database at startup, since it can really grow a lot over
time.
  - Tweaked cross origin access control to make youtube video upload work.
  - Fixed some issue with 401 handling. Should fix some cPanel administration
pages, 
    for instance (hello Christoph and Pampers :)).

  - The page where a download is coming from (when available) is now also stored

    and can be restored from download manager contextmenu.
  - Enabled large file support in Curl (>4GB files, assuming the underlying
filesystem 
    supports it).    
  - Make F11 key (fullscreen toggle) also work in the video overlay area.
  - Disable blanker when entering video overlay mode.
  - A quicklink wouldn't be updated properly after its URL was changed in
bookmarks.
  - Make the webview object active after a provisional load event, to be able to
tab-cycle 
    between the page form elements without clicking the webview first.
  - Fixed a crash issue with the imp.free.fr webmail (old version). It was a
deadly 
    combination of the 417 status code handling and frame disposal. 
  - Fixed an issue in authentication process happening for instance with
system.ch server.
  - In middle mouse button scrolling mode, releasing button over a link would
open 
    the link.
  - Updated Youtube.js

##############################################################################

- 28.10.2011: Odyssey Web Browser 1.15
  - Updated to WebKit r98566 (October 2011).
  - Tabs are now detachable when dropped outside of the window. They can also be
    attached to another existing window by dropping them on the target window 
    webview/tab group.
  - Added an new autoscroll mode when doubleclicking middle mouse button (click
    button again to abort).
  - Added GETTITLE REXX command.
  - Updated a couple useragents.
  - Improved dragimage for selected text. It now looks 1:1 like selected
content.
  - Make sure search suggestion poplist is closed when the search string is 
    validated.
  - Made AltGr key work in googledocs.
  - Applied a patch to prevent mydrive.ch from hanging when uploading.
  - Threading layer reworked so that a task uses only one signal for all its
    child threads.It avoids "out of exec signal" situations that prevented
    from running  more than 3-4 mediaplayer instances at the same time.
  - Restore video fullpage/overlay mode after switching a webview to 
    fullscreen/window mode.
  - Hide panels when switching a webview to fullscreen mode and restore state 
    when switching back.
  - Make sure all media elements instances are disposed when closing a
    webview (WebKit would sometimes forget some).
  - When running out of memory, the "death requester" now also gives the choice
    between retrying the allocation (giving a chance to free some memory from 
    another application) or attempting to quit the application (it might just
fail!).
  - Fixed YouTube HTML5 fullscreen mode (Youtube_Fullscreen_Fix.js).    
  - Updated youtube.js.    

##############################################################################

- 05.08.2011: Odyssey Web Browser 1.14 (July 2011)
  - Changed the name to "Odyssey Web Browser". Like it or hate it, but you can
    still call it OWB, anyway. :)
  - Updated to WebKit r91657 (July 2011).
  - Updated to Curl 7.21.7.
  - Use OpenSSL 0.9.8o since 1.0.0d introduced issues with some sites that 
    used to work previously.
  - Added a popup menu in search string showing Google suggestions for the 
    currently typed word.
  - Added a cookie policy option in URL settings (possibility to filter on 
    both URL and cookie names with regular expressions).
  - Added a cookie policy option in global settings.
  - Allow deleting a cookie domain (and all its cookies) in cookie manager 
    window.
  - Decrease rootgroup spacing in fullscreen mode.
  - Added FULLSCREEN REXX command. 
  - Added a fullscreen menu entry, for people lacking F11 key. :) 
  - URLs with video/audio MIME types can now be played directly inside the 
    browser, if the related MIME type action is set to "Internal viewer" 
    (assuming the codec/format is supported).
  - Don't show scrollbars in video fullpage mode.
  - Fixed a possible deadlock in MediaPlayer when the object is disposed 
    very early.
  - Made support for FLV and OGG optional in media settings (disabled by
default), 
    since these formats can sometimes confuse some sites like DailyMotion
(refusing
    to play anything if OGG is available ?!), and YouTube (serving FLV in HTML5
mode ?!!).
  - Honour the "attachment" attribute in Content-Disposition response header 
    and force download when it's set.
  - Implemented the necessary logic in CURL backend to upload documents in 
    Google Docs and YouTube (it could already work before by spoofing to 
    older browsers versions, but they're not supported anymore).
  - Upload progress is now notified to the DOM (allows scripts to display
progress).
  - Show an appropriate status/progress and lamp for upload connections in
network 
    activity/network lamps.
  - Fixed month display in FTP view.
  - Make use of a FTP template page (resource/FTPDirectoryTemplate.html) to
enhance
    the look of the FTP view.
  - Set a proper mimetype (based on extension) for the URLs with a FTP scheme, 
    instead of displaying them as raw text content.
  - Fixed YouTube HTML5 fullscreen mode, since it changed again
(Youtube_Fullscreen_Fix.js).
  - Updated youtube.js userscript to work after the recent YouTube changes.

##############################################################################

- 16.07.2011: OWB 1.13
  - Updated to WebKit r90337 (July 2011).
  - Updated OpenSSL to 1.0.0d.
  - Updated SSL certificates.
  - Added SpellChecker library support. Dictionaries are expected in that kind 
    of path: LOCALE:dictionaries/<language>/base.dic
    To enable spellchecker, use contextmenu in a text/textarea element and 
    enable "Check Spelling While Typing".
  - Added arrows to <select> element default style, to differentiate it from 
    a plain text element.
  - Added middle mouse button scrolling.
  - Implemented a kind of fullscreen display, triggered on/off with F11 key.
  - Attempt to fix a problem with cookies subdomain handling.
  - Added a media control panel (play/pause/seek/volume) in fullwindow mode
(overlay).
    It can be hidden/shown with middle mouse button.
  - Fixed an issue with some vimeo links that prevented videos from being
played.
  - Fixed an application deadlock that happened when closing a page while a WebM
    video was still in seeking phase.  
  - Fixed CSS issues in builtin media player stylesheet.
  - Updated Youtube.js to enforce container height after recent Youtube changes,

    so that media controls aren't cropped.
  - Added "OWB_DISABLE_MOBILE_COMPRESSION" ENV option to disable mobile
compression (hello pampers :)).

##############################################################################

- 04.03.2011: OWB 1.12   - Updated to WebKit r80266 (March 2011).
  - Added support for "private browsing". To enable it (on a per-tab basis),
    enable "private browsing" in Settings menu. Once activated, private browsing
    will disable any kind of data storage
(history/cookies/favicons/sessions/...).
    Private browsing is inherited for any page created from a page in private
browsing mode.
  - Implemented per-URL settings (for plugins/images/javascript/useragent
options).
    For instance, it could be used so that a given site is accessed under IPad
    user agent with plugin (Flash) disabled.
  - Improved UTF8/local charset support for clipboard. When copying, UTF8 and
local strings
    are copied in two different chunks, which allows legacy applications to
retrieve local
    charset string, while OWB (and possibly other applications) make use of the
UTF8 chunk.
  - Added a clipboard monitor to address an issue with DHTML copy. After a
rich-text copy, 
    paste would always reuse that content, even if system clipboard had been
modified (externally or
    not) in the meanwhile. This clipboard monitor allows to reset DHTML
clipboard as soon as a
    regular system clipboard copy has been performed.
  - Added a "mark all matches" option in text find function.
  - The bookmark class is not limited anymore to one level of depth. Please note
that Intuition
    menus also have this limitation, though. So if you plan to display
subfolders in menu as well,
    they'll be flattened, unless you use MUI menus instead of Intuition menus.
  - Tweaked mediaplayer to work again with spiegel.de HTML5 videos.
  - Fixed mediaplayer autoplay that got broken in some cases.
  - Fixed an endianess bug in WebKit shadow effect that prevented them from
being shown.
  - Adjusted font backend to show font-weight:semi-bold as bold instead of
showing it as normal
    text (cairo/freetype backend only supports normal/bold levels).  
  - Fixed an issue with per-tab settings being reset by WebKit after a new tab
creation.
  - Fixed some possible crash with select items that were deleted from DOM at
selection change.
  - Fixed youtube.js userscript for recent YouTube changes (in fact, it could
already work,
    with the alternative link method that could be selected in youtube.js
preferences).
  - Changed about: and error pages (contribution from Samir Hawamdeh).

##############################################################################

- 05.11.2010: OWB 1.11
  - Updated to WebKit r71312 (5th November 2010). Fixes amongst other things:
    - lazy loading of thumbnails on youtube and google image.
    - crash at http://www.reco.se.
  - Updated to Pixman 0.20.0.
  - Now compiled with GCC 4.4.4.
  - Avoid redrawing a bitmap each time a data chunk is received from network.
Should speed
    up pictures loading time, or at least decrease CPU usage substancially.
  - Added a workaround to avoid using "complex font rendering" code path
(triggered by
    "text-rendering: optimizedlegibility" CSS attribute, or by fonts requiring
ligatures). 
    The complex mode is indeed not implemented in cairo/freetype font backend,
which 
    caused the sites using it to show invisible text (for instance
http://www.mentor.com/).
  - Replaced the contextmenu for media elements with WebKit's own
implementation.
  - Added SELECTEDTEXT REXX command (text is converted to local charset).
  - Added "Ignore" to the available mimetype user actions.
  - Added Safari 5 and Opera 10 user agents.
  - Updated youtube_fullscreen_fix.js to support embedded youtube as well
(remove/readd the script to take
    the new URL pattern into account)
  - In youtube.js, remove explicitely the dynamically created video element at
unload event,
    to avoid a potential media instance "leak".
  - Hopefully fixed some rare random crash related to a bug in reference
pointers holding cairo objects.
  - Enabled again the "death requester" in case of low memory, since it had been
disabled somehow.
    This requester is somewhat useful, because it frees allocated memory and
kills OWB in a harmless way.

##############################################################################

- 05.09.2010: OWB 1.10
  - Updated to WebKit r66666 (2 September 2010).
  - Implemented HTML5 Drag and Drop (text and images can be dragged/dropped
from/to several places).
  - Reworked login/password form detection rules to be more tolerant.
  - Added a shortcut/keyword for search engine definition. For instance, if you
have 'g' 
    as shortcut for google engine, typing "g foobar" in URL will order a search
using google 
    engine.
  - Enabled again CSS shadow effect, since the webkit/cairo implementation was
    finally made fast enough.
  - Fixed some potential crash in WebKit when a file can't be displayed
internally
    and that plugins are disabled or not available.
  - Search engine string now handles input codepage correctly.
  - "Find in page" now handles input codepage correctly.
  - The focus ring wasn't displayed anymore after having cycled (tab key)
through
    the whole page and re-entering it again.
  - Filter invalid characters for downloaded filenames.
  - Convert downloaded filenames to local charset.
  - Added amiga+r (reload) and amiga+s (stop) shortcuts.
  - ()exclude keyword in userscripts was actually adding the sites to the
whitelist too. :)
  - Updated youtube_fullscreen_fix.js since youtube broke it (again).
  - Removed useless user-agent checks in youtube.js.
  - Removed dailymotion userscript, since their HTML5 player has been rewritten
and now
    supports fullscreen properly.
  - Added OWB_CURL_FORBID_ENCODING ENV var to disable gzip support (mostly for
debug purpose,
    but can also help for some broken sites).

##############################################################################

- 08.08.2010: OWB 1.9
  - Updated to OWB r1468. To be noted OWB doesn't seem to be actively developped

    since May, so I'll merge directly against WebKit, from now on.
  - Updated to WebKit r63894 (July 2010).
  - Updated to CURL 7.21.0 
    - Interrupt a pending DNS thread immediately when a connection handle is
being disposed.
    - Reduced the amount of Exec signals allocated for DNS resolution threads 
      (one for all threads, instead of one per thread).
    - Added OWB_CURL_FORBID_REUSE ENV var to disable CURL connection re-use
feature 
      (this feature sometimes causes stalled connections, for a yet unknown
reason).
  - MediaPlayer:
    - Changed native controls skin and behaviour to look like Chrome's
mediaplayer.
    - Added optional support for VP8/WEBM codec (Settings->Media section).
    - Added optional support for fast seeking (consists in creating a new
connection 
      instead of downloading everything before the target position). It can be
disabled 
      in Settings->Media section.
    - Made the H264 loopfilter mode configurable in Settings->Media section
    - Enabled altivec in ffmpeg (except for Theora, since it's currently
broken).
    - Disabled ffmpeg FAST flag for decoding, since it could give ugly results 
      on some files.
    - Added play/pause/mute/unmute/download media/copy media URL contextmenu 
      entries for HTML Media elements.
    - Defer audio hardware allocation until play event, and release it at the 
      end of stream instead of waiting until media player destruction, to help 
      a bit with people not using device.audio AHI mode. WebKit can indeed cache

      mediaplayer instances until tab destruction, so there are situations where
audio
      wouldn't be available anymore.
  - Fixed a strange cookie path restriction in OWB cookie handling, which makes 
    wordpress.com login work.
  - Fixed youtube.js to work with Youtube latest changes, and made MPEG4 the 
    default format (fmt=18), instead of FLV, since it's faster and better
supported.
  - Added per-tab options in settings menu for plugins, images, javascript and
user-agent.
  - Reworked the refresh method to use several rectangles, when it's more
efficient to do so.
  - Modified the scrolling implementation to behave correctly with the WebKit
recent 
    optimizations regarding fixed elements. It also fixes some occasional glitch
in custom 
    scrollers rendering.
  - Disabled WebKit box-shadow effect rendering, since it was extremely slow
with cairo. 
    This "cures" abnormal slowness on sites like apple.com/html5 or ign.com.
  - Added a "remaining time" column in download manager.
  - Added Amiga + z and Amiga + shift + z qualifier for undo/redo.
  - Added Shift + Space shortcut as "page up" function.
  - Added a search string in bookmark and cookies window.
  - "Add bookmark" button now adds bookmarks below the currently selected node,
or at 
    the end of the current group list, if a group node is selected.
    If no entry is selected, the new link is still added to the end, like
before.
  - Allow to scroll in bookmark tree when dragging an entry over upper or lower
areas 
    of the listtree object.
  - Added a persistant "show in menu" option in the bookmark title selection
window 
    (this window appears when dropping a link on quicklinks group or "add
bookmark" button).
  - Added a special favicon for bookmarks/quicklinks with "javascript:" scheme.
  - Added a contextmenu to copy an entry URL in password manager.
  - Character '&' wasn't processed properly in search engine string.
  - Truncate history/bookmark to 64 characters in pulldown menu.
  - Moved WebInspector ENV var option to a regular setting in Prefs->Content
section.
  - Added an option to enable/disable plugins globally in Prefs->Content
section.
  - Create a new tab/window when selecting an entry in "recently closed views"
menu.
  - Added user-agents for Chrome, Iphone and Ipad (spoofing as IPad can help
showing 
    some sites with HTML5 Video/Audio instead of Flash).
  - Added OWB_NO_STATIC_BACKGROUND ENV variable to ignore background "fixed" CSS

    attribute, which improves scrolling performance.
  - Added notes about Youtube and the specific settings to make it work 
    in HTML5 or at least without Flash using the builtin player. So *please* 
    read the Youtube section of this document if you have trouble playing 
    Youtube videos.

##############################################################################

- 04.06.2010: OWB 1.8
  - Updated to OWB SVN r1458.
  - Updated to CURL 7.20.1 and implemented a threaded DNS resolver,
    which prevents OWB network task from being blocked until a DNS resolution is
finished.
  - Updated to PixMan 0.18.0.
  - Implemented fullscreen mode for HTML5 video, using overlay. In this
    mode, the CPU usage is reduced drastically (about 300% speedup for youtube
360p content). 
  - Added a "switch to fullscreen" context menu entry for plain HTML5 video
elements.
  - Fixed some possible audio glitches due to an error in buffer management.
  - Fixed some minor issues in MediaPlayer timeline handling.
  - Implemented an userscript manager (GreaseMonkey-like). In practice, it means
    a webpage can be modified on-the-fly with a JavaScript script. 
    In Scripts/ directory, two examples can be found:
    - hello.js: a simple example to illustrate the script functionality.
    - youtube.js: when applied to a youtube link (in Flash mode), this script 
                  adds direct links to the video, and replaces the Flash element

                  by a HTML5 Video element. I suggest adding &fmt=18 to the
youtube 
                  link to play the 360p mp4 version by default.
    To be noted scripts are only injected to tabs/windows created after their
addition in 
    the script manager.
  - Use MorphOS 2.x charsets.library for UTF8->local conversions (if available).
  - Added icons for "add bookmark" and "bookmarks" buttons.
  - Added ctrl+pgup/pgdown shortcut to cycle between tabs.
  - Added a search string for bookmarks and history panels.
  - Added a "copy to clipboard" contextmenu entry for network activity window.
  - Tabs can be now be dragged too (MorphOS 2.5 required).
  - When dropping a tab to bookmarks or quicklinks, use the site title instead
of "no title".
  - Disable gzip on-the-fly decompression when downloading gzip files.
  - Copying UTF8 strings to system clipboard from contextmenu could result in
truncated strings.
  - Adjusted timer to postpone short requests when they are too frequent, since
    they could cause high CPU usage in some cases.
  - Fixed a bug in download manager when a download connection fails before even
asking for destination.
  - Fixed some NULL pointer read access in OWB fontcache, when no fonts are
found.
  - Fixed some more minor memory leaks in OWB API usage.

  Notes about YouTube and HTML5:
  - You can enable HTML5 in YouTube by going to http://www.youtube.com/html5
    and follow instructions (no account needed).
  - Youtube broke the "fullscreen" mode just before this release. I supplied an
userscript
    in Scripts/ to fix it: go to windows->scripts and add
Scripts/Youtube_Fullscreen_Fix.js.
    Once it's effective, fullscreen mode will use overlay (i.e much faster).
  - Don't forget to read notes about sound in "Preempted rants" section. :)

##############################################################################

- 04.03.2010: OWB 1.7
  - Updated to OWB SVN r1369.
  - Updated to Curl 7.20.
  - Implemented HTML5 Media backend (<VIDEO> and <AUDIO>) through FFMpeg:
    - Support for most common codecs: Ogg/Theora/Vorbis, MPEG4, H264, AAC, MP3,
Wav, ...
    - Builtin controls support.
    - Sites like dailymotion/openvideo, youtube/html5 and vimeo work. Here are a
few random links:
      - http://openvideo.dailymotion.com/video/xbzemj_le-clan-suricate_animals
      - http://vimeo.com/8504375 (select "switch to html5" at bottom right)
      - http://camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody/test.html
      - http://diveintohtml5.org/video.html (bottom)
      - http://people.opera.com/howcome/2007/video/controls.html
      - http://www.scottandrew.com/pub/html5audioplayer/
      - For youtube, subscribe to beta html5 program by going to
http://www.youtube.com/html5
    - Known issues/limitations:
      - Audio output uses AHI music unit at the moment, which is unfortunately
exclusive. It's still possible
	to play several sounds at once with this mode, by setting AHI music unit to:
"Unit 0: <mode>".
      - Each media instance requires one exec signal in OWB main task, which
means there can 
	be 5 concurrent media players at most (depending on other OWB options that can
also eat signals).
      - Fullscreen mode isn't implemented yet.
      - The whole media is stored in memory (sorry for this one, it will be
handled in a more elegant way later).
  - Added search engine configuration window.
  - Implemented JavaScript window modes for popups (no toolbar, no status,
window size, ...).
  - Improved keyboard support, more texteditor shortcuts work now: ctrl+a
(select all), ctrl+[shift]+z (undo/redo), ctrl+b/u/i (bold,underline,italic),
...
    It also makes http://www.konamicodesites.com work properly. :)
  - Added ctrl+wheel combination to zoom in/out.
  - Added an option to make navigation toolbar frameless.
  - Reworked navigation buttons: buttons now have hover and selection effects
(note that brushes are not in .mim format anymore).
  - Added dynamic frame for quicklinks in borderless mode.
  - Added optional horizontal separators between navigation, quicklinks and
address groups.
  - Added status images for local/internet/secure/insecure areas.
  - Added optional validation buttons for URL and search strings.
  - Added balance between URL and search groups (balance appears on mouse
hover).
  - Reworked history popup in completion mode, so that the typed text is shown
(as bold/underline)
    in the matching entries in the list.
  - Added "Open all bookmarks" entry for quicklinks folder items.
  - Added SOURCE/S argument to OPEN REXX command to open current browser source
view.
  - Added %p placeholder for contextmenu and mimetype actions, referring to OWB
REXX port name.
  - In download manager, hilight tab title instead of switching page, when a new
event occurs.
  - Allow to restart a finished download too.
  - Changed options regarding session restoration at startup (always/ask/never).
  - Slight adjustments in cookie parsing (fixes MobileMe).
  - Don't show authorization window with uncomplete 401 responses.
  - Added more checks to know if a file can actually be resumed.
  - The form credentials saving system now allows to ignore some sites, by
pressing "never" button,
    when asked if credentials should be saved.
  - Hid the password column in passwords window (it can be shown with
contextmenu over list header).
  - Selecting an entry in the contextmenu of back/forward buttons no longer
modifies the back/forward list.
  - Don't focus to URL string anymore if a window was not manually opened.
  - Don't render cairo surfaces for active browser when the program is
iconified.
  - Disable gzip on-the-fly decompression when downloading, since it seems to
create some confusion.
  - Favicon database was active even if favicons were disabled.
  - Minor fixes in bookmark/quicklink handling.
  - Fixed an encoding issue with the site titles in history database.
  - Fixed an issue with middlebutton handling when sidepanels are enabled.
  - Fixed a possible race in private static objects instanciation in WebKit
(actually it's a gcc "bug").
  - Removed the lame googlemap bug workaround and integrated the proper fix from
WebKit.
  - Changed some options defaults: history popup, network thread, experimental
cookies and favicons are now enabled by default.

  IMPORTANT: if you're using experimental cookies (which I strongly suggest),
make sure to delete previous conf/cookieDatabase.db,
  since some OWB generic fixes affected it, else you might encounter
non-functional logins or similar bogus behaviour.

##############################################################################

- 16.12.2009: OWB 1.6 hotfix
  - Enabled WebInspector (Firebug-like). WebInspector allows browsing
resources/scripts, profiling, debugging...
    It can be enabled with: "setenv OWB_ENABLE_INSPECTOR 1". When enabled, a new
"inspect element" entry is
    added to webview contextmenus. Here's what it looks like:
http://fabportnawak.free.fr/inspector.png
  - Avoid conflicts between regular context menus and javascript contextmenus.
  - Updated russian, swedish and czech locales.
  - Added a lame workaround in javascript interpreter that caused regressions in
google maps.
  - Fixed a possible crash with priority popups in MLdonkey HTML interface.

##############################################################################

- 11.12.2009: OWB 1.6
  - Updated to OWB SVN r1158.
  - Added a GUI for content blocking (windows->content blocking). Regular
expressions are accepted,
    and entries can either be white or blacklisted.
  - Added "Block images from <linked domain>" context menu item for pictures.
  - Save and restore the list of downloaded/finished/failed files (optional).
  - Sessions now also restore scroll offset in pages.
  - Added support for external transfer animations:
    + PROGDIR:resource/transferanim.png and
PROGDIR:resource/transferanim_tab.png will be used if they exist.
    + The expect format is a 32bits PNG with square frames (horizontal layout).
The rate is set to 30ms per frame.
  - Enabled user stylesheet. PROGDIR:resource/userStyleSheet.css will be used if
it exists. This user stylesheet
    allows changing default form controls look, for instance (amongst many other
things).
  - Reworked history popup list to show favicons (optionally), title and url on
2 lines.
  - Reworked network activity window to show a more precise state
(connecting/waiting/current progress).
  - Network activity leds now show different colours depending on connection
state.
  - Added favicons settings to configure the categories favicons should be
displayed in (tabs/history/bookmarks/...).
  - Added a few more tweaks in mimetype system to fallback to download action if
no proper mimetype is sent (or configured).
  - Added BACK and FORWARD REXX commands.
  - Added GETURL to retrieve active browser URL (stored in RESULT).
  - Added AS/K option to SAVEURL REXX command, to choose the target file path.
  - Added more up-to-date user agents in spoof settings.
  - Don't change active tab after closing an inactive tab.
  - Bookmark groups can now also be added to quicklinks. In that case, a popup
menu will display group entries.
  - Allowed editing builtin mimetypes attributes, such as text/html and co (but
think twice when modifying them, of course).
  - Middle clicking an entry in history or bookmark now opens the link in a new
tab.
  - "Copy Image" context menu item now copies the actual image content to
clipboard, instead of its URL.
  - Many fixes in the new cookie system (thanks sszymczy).
  - Fixed some left mouse button event issue that could cause trouble on
googledocs or fckeditor toolbars (thx sszymczy).
  - Fixed a focus issue with frames.
  - Fixed a potential race in WebKit with plugins and stream disposal.
  - Fixed ftp:// listings so that they are browsable.
  - Fixed the "rewind" error message that could occur during file upload in some
cases.
  - Fixed Acid3 test 97.
  - Fixed "Paste" to work in rich text editors (such as googledocs).
  - Fixed a bug with "Cut" function.

  Translators: please update your translations, i'll supply the locale archive
separately.

  There's a known regression since r1106 (or so): maps.google.* is kinda broken
(some options/buttons don't have any effect).
  It's a generic issue in WebKit when JIT is disabled, and it was reported to
their bugtracker. I'll update a fixed version when it's fixed.

##############################################################################

- 17.10.2009: OWB 1.5
  - Updated to OWB SVN r1092.
  - Updated to Curl 7.19.6.
  - Added Locale support: get to work, translators. :)
  - Made webview links, quicklinks and bookmark entries draggable.
  - Made webview, tabs, "new tab" button, "add to bookmark" button, quicklink
group,
    URL string and bookmark window droppable.
  - Implemented (optional) Favicon support. They are displayed in tabs, history
panel, bookmark,
    bookmark panel and quicklinks.
  - Added save/restore session menu entries in project menu.
  - Made restore session requester at startup optional.
  - Added password manager for auth and forms (for forms, enable "save form
credentials" in options).
  - Moved the experimental cookie system ENV var option to "settings/network"
settings.
  - Added cookie manager (designed to work with experimental cookie system).
  - Added common user agents in "settings/network" (OWB_USER_AGENT env var still
overrides if you set it).
  - Added "Ignore SSL Errors" and certificate path to "settings/security".
  - Added application/force-download and application/octet-stream to the default
mimetype list.
  - Allows file download in "READWRITE" mode (which allows previewing during
download).
  - Added history sidepanel.
  - Made bookmark sidepanel update faster.
  - Added "History" pulldown menu with recently visited entries and recently
closed tabs submenu.
  - Added REXX command: "ADDBOOKMARK TITLE/A,URL/A,ALIAS/K,MENU/S,QUICKLINK/S".
  - Focus to progress/done/error tab in download window when related events
occur.
  - Setting file comment doesn't fail anymore if the URL length is > 79
characters.
  - Download window wouldn't autoclose anymore if a download requester had been
previously cancelled.

for instance.

  - Fixed date handling.
  - Take argument URL into account when restoring session at startup.
  - Fixed an illegal access issue and other bugs with the new OWB cookie system.
  - Added some memory checks in strategic places in WebKit to avoid crashing if
there's not
    enough memory (but don't expect it to be bullet-proof anyway. WebKit is just
not designed
    to handle properly low-memory cases).
  - Show a nice requester when Webkit decides to crash because it can't deal
    with failed memory allocations. Also free the whole heap memory in that
case.

- 16.08.2009: OWB 1.4 - MorphOS 2.4 Release (NoSVG build)
  - Updated to OWB SVN r1015.
  - Implemented NPAPI plugin system. Plugins are implemented as shared
libraries.
    They are loaded from PROGDIR:plugins/ directory.
  - New OWB cookie system is now available (it helps with gmail or hotmail, for
instance).
    However, it's only available with "setenv OWB_EXPERIMENTAL_COOKIES 1" for
now,
    since it's still considered as WIP in OWB main branch.
  - Mimetype system now also searches for defined filename extensions if an URL
doesn't advertise
    any registered mimetype. ftp:// URL also automatically makes use of these
extensions bindings, 
    since that's the only way to make a decision for this scheme.
  - Mimetype list (preferences) is now sorted.
  - Added backspace and alt+cursor navigation/scrolling keys.
  - Fixed http://login:pass()host authentication method which was broken in 1.3.
  - Escape filename in the mimetype "ask action" requester.
  - Fixed an excessive VMEM consumption introduced in 1.3.
  - Updated libxslt, which fixes a deadly crash in some XML/XPATH pages (for
instance OpenGL SDK).
  - A requester asking for HTTP: volume would sometimes appear at download
completion. Fixed.

##############################################################################

- 07.06.2009: OWB 1.3
  - Updated to OWB SVN r994.
  - Network can now optionally run in a dedicated thread.
    Just for information, CURL network backend has always been asynchronous,
    but some specific parts can unfortunately block depending on the network
    link (e.g dns resolution), hence the need for a dedicated thread.
  - Improved CURL buffer management to cope more easily with higher
    download speeds.
  - Added resume support to download manager.
  - Display more information in download overwrite/resume requester
    (local/remote file dates and sizes).
  - Added failure reason column in download manager 'Failed' tab.
  - Added URL column in download manager.
  - Added a gauge for each entry in download manager.
  - Added a retry button for failed downloads.
  - Download speed is now measured as an "instant" value (before, it was
computed
    as an average since the download start).
  - Added a confirmation requester if POST data is about to be resent
    (should avoid duplicated messages on fora, for instance).

conf/blocked.prefs
    (it will be made configurable from settings/contextmenu later).
  - Bookmark tree can now be shown as a side panel.
  - Reworked refresh method (behaves better and faster with 2dlayers when moving
    windows over browser area).
  - Added mimetype configuration: for each mimetype, "view", "download",
    "external command" and "ask" actions are available.
  - Added configurable contextual menus for link, page and image objects,
    which can now be extended with user actions.
  - Added session saving/restoration (optional). F9 and F10 keys also
respectively allow to manually
    select a session file to restore from/save to.
  - Added "Load in New Background Tab" contextmenu item (which was already
available
    before by pressing MMB).
  - Added HTML (embedded) error reporting mode. Requester and HTML modes can be
    selected from settings.
  - Quit requester is now optional.
  - Added "Paste to URL" menu entry.
  - More work on PDF export (saves the whole site into a page-based
    document, with or without backgrounds depending on settings).
  - Added drag'n'drop support to browser window (each dropped file creates a new
tab).
  - Added mailto: support (through OpenURL).
  - Added javascript: scheme support from URL string.
  - Space key now also scrolls page down.
  - New bookmark entries are also added to pulldown menu by default.
  - asyncio.library is now used for file input/output.
  - Added BACKGROUND switch to "Open" ARexx command (only relevant when used
with NEWPAGE).
  - Fixed SAVEURL ARexx command 'quiet' mode.
  - Removed a 256 characters limit with bookmark entries.
  - Changed widgets default colours to give more contrast.
  - Added htm/php extensions for local browsing.
  - Fixed an issue with duplicated entries in network window when using several
windows.
  - Fixed an issue with file upload (full path could be sent instead of just the
file name).
  - Moved history.db and cookieCollection.txt to conf/ directory (move your old
    ones there, sorry for that :)).
