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...
