Pretty substantial update. Even better you tube and a bunch of other goodies.

If you have auto update turned on, just load Wayfarer. It will ask you if you want to update and will handle it automatically. Pretty sweet...

From Jaca's post:

Wayfarer 6.0 is now available!

The WebKit core has again been rebased to the latest stable WebKitGTK tree. But that's not all, 6.0 also brings many UI improvements like Bookmark filtering, improved password management, Youtube playback fixes, additional Altivec acceleration and more.

To update from 5.5 simply use the Check for Updates menu function. Wayfarer will then download the new build and auto-update on quit. To update from an older version, manually extract all files from wayfarer.lha into your existing installation.

Excelent!

Rebased to WebKitGTK 2.40.2

Implemented Bookmarks filtering

Password manager now stores port numbers too, making it possible to have multiple services requiring login handled on the same domain (as a side effect, all old passwords have been promoted to port 443/https)

Added a popup if audio initialization has failed

Added a way to manually add passwords in the Password Settings

Youtube MSE playback improvements

Fixed HTTP authentication popup saving credentials for a wrong host in case of redirection

Fixed a redraw issue when opening print panel while page is still loading

Fixed to default mimeType to text/html if missing in response from server

Fixed a couple of minor memory leaks

Updated libnix and libpng16 both with additional Altivec optimizations

Updated libxml2, libwebp

Wayfarer 6.1 just dropped!

- Downloads and network cache writes now use asyncio.library
- Adjusted SSL ciphers to try to default to ones that are faster on PowerPC
- Checks whether lo0 interface is enabled and warns if not
- Improved error handling in auto-updater

It also seems faster than 6.0 so far...

Wayfarer 6.2 is out!

- Added AdBlocker settings with three different data sets
- Improved search vs URL detection in the URL string
- Added "Paste and Go" to the URL string context menu
- New tabs are now being added after the active tab (can be changed in Settings/Interface)
- Added a Font Code Path setting and changed the default to Simple on slower machines. This was previously forced to Complex to allow ligature handling, but could lead to very poor performance when editing text, etc
- Fine-tuned redraw handling while editing text
- Updated EasyList AdBlocker data
- Updated libwebp to address its various recent CVEs
- Updated sqlite, nghttp2, curl and psl libraries

Very nice updates! Too bad OS 4.1 does not have a modern browser like this.

That's because they've been spending their time on legal disputes instead of making a browser and the improvements that OS4 needs for it.

Wayfarer 6.3 is now out! Changes in this version include:

- Rewritten the audio decoder to use AHI's device interface
- Fixed a bug in the MSE media player where a video that's played till the end could not be replayed
- Fixed a regression when closing tabs
- Fixed a problem with media duration not being correctly reported to the HTMLMediaElement, leading to things like YT's seeking not working or Bandcamp not skipping to the next track
- Checks if Core web fonts are missing and runs WebFontsInstaller when prompted

@kriz
Also is question to have clear ideas where you go with the operative system, not only to get money and work in team, in this case the MorphOS team changed internal things to make possible Wayfarer and Iris for example, in the AmigaOS4 side only sell parts of system with the current result two systems inside of a same example Enchacer and F.E. is not good, but this is what it is.
I remember the intent of make a good browser in AmigaOS4 the port called Timberwolf and the bounty where the we people gave until reach the 7000 euros and after leave the project, that created a bad image. Fortunately in this case MorphOS is different because always there was a people making a browser, the problem in this case is that people gets tired, etc. Sputnik, Origen Web Browser (OWB) and now Wayfarer.

@Templario

Well said. The only difference is the coder is part of the development team and now the apps and the OS are moving together. So Jaca has a real road map, not to mention a ton of updates for both wayfarer and iris that clearly is unique and refreshing.

Wayfarer 6.4 just dropped:


6.4 is now out to fix a race condition when initializing audio playback.

As per usual I didn't even know it was out and Wayfarer notified me and auto updated. Done in 10 seconds and I didn't even need to do anything.

Way to go Jaca, the polish you have brought to MorpOS, Iris, and Wayfarer is just amazing at this point! I will save a bit and toss you another donation!
