@Mobileconnect

I belive swift (SmallTalk) and objective C was mostly used for the GUI parts.

We only need more up to date webkit, so back porting is what we need to do.

I think both your comments are a bit funny, but by all means, please go ahead and try to ”patch” or ”back port” jaca’s sources into OS4 Odyssey!

@TRIPOS

True, I have not really looked at it.

Not me, too big, don’t like cross compilers, CMake, and other stuff.

Objective C is IOS / MacOSX thing, sure its not needed for Linux builds, its optinal.

What should interest OS4 developers is any code changed to support bigeniness, any code changed to support Amiga like API’s, the other stuff is of no interest. Any code changes improve JS execution time. any change to improve rendering speed of webpage, graphic card accleration. Any bug fix related to PowerPC.

Wayfarer 2.7 is now out!

- Worked around random crashes that may have been observed in 2.6
- Significantly improved performance of various threading checks across WebKit
- Worked around an issue in objc runtime that caused Wayfarer to stall during download notifications. Do note that notifications must be reconfigured in Magic Beacon as some keywords have changed.
- Improved handling of websites that constatly request http auth credentials instead of caching the state

Objective-C is from the 80s...

It's not really needed for my port either. I could make a basic WebKit MUI class in a few hours without the use of the ObjC interfaces. As could any OS4 developer. So go go go!

@jacadcaps

People keep spinning their wheels about Objective C, while deliberately(?) missing the point: you did all the heavy lifting with WebKit for them

Wayfarer 2.8 is now available

- Altivec code paths for a lot of WebAudio routines, optimized sin/cos computations in StereoPanner
- Fast code paths for feColorMatrix (approximately 6 times faster than WebCore code)
- Recompiled to fix a bug with longcalls in GCC, which caused it to miscompile the code in some cases leading to crashes
- Improved the ContentDisposition header parser in WebKit
- Detects expired certificates in the certificate viewer
- Added a way to delete saved self-signed certificates, disabled the ability to 'trust' invalid/expired (not self signed) certificates
- Fixed a regression in HTTP AUTH handling that caused downloads from password protected pages to fail

Jacadcaps:

Forgot to mention this in the changelog, but this build is also linked against a new, faster libm (library with various mathematical functions). It's been ported from Apple's PowerPC optimized sources by Piru and I.

@t0lkien

Now that sounds cool, the internet has become a resource sucking cesspool....browsing can hardly even be accused of being fast on a 1,5GHz G4 :-/

EDIT: Oooh, I just got told there's an upgrade on startup :D

Which version of GCC ? And did you recompile GCC itself or you compiled Wayfarer with a specific command line option to avoid the bug ?
