Software News   Software News : OWB 1.2 for MorphOS released
   posted by guruman on 16-Apr-2009 22:26:19 (3032 reads)
Fabien "Fab" Coeurjoly has updated his MorphOS port of the Origyn Web Browser. This web browser is based on the powerful WebKit engine which is also used by Apple's Safari or Google's Chrome.

Version 1.2 is available in three editions, namely the full browser (owb-morphos-1.2.lha), a version without SVG support (owb-morphos-1.2-nosvg.lha) and "OWB Lite" which excludes support for SVG and for codepages other than UTF-8 and Latin-1. The two extra editions are primarily intented to be used on systems that feature only low amounts of memory (Efika).(Please click read more)


System requirements:‏
MorphOS 2.x is strongly recommended but it can still work on a 1.4.x setup if a recent MUI snapshot (2007) is installed. The full browser requires about 5MB of disk space and at least 35MB of free system memory. (The No-SVG and Lite editions of OWB may require different amounts of disk space and system memory.)


The developer made the following changes::
- Updated to OWB SVN r884 (08.03.2009).
- Updated to Curl 7.19.3.
- Substancially increased scrolling speed in some cases.
- Reduced a lot CPU usage in some cases (i.e MorphZone forum when replying).
- Added authentication window (not all protocols are handled yet).
- Added history loading/saving with max age/max entries settings.
- Added support for visited links marking.
- Added URL completion: string and/or popup completion modes are available (and optional).
- Added console window (displaying JavaScript error messages amongst others).
- Added "Save as HTML" menu entry.
- Added cache model and page cache settings.
- Added "New Tab" button.
- Added context menu actions to tab titles.
- Added context menu in downloaded entries list to open file/directory with Ambient.
- Added loading transfer anim in tabs (optional).
- Added "SAVEURL URL/A" rexx command (downloads passed URL to download directory).
- Allow Euro symbol input in forms.
- Send "Accept-Language" http header set with system preferred languages.
- Implemented JavaScript prompt request.
- Enabled "Resizable TextArea" webkit option.
- Made tab-cycling work properly for the whole browser window (it was only working inside the page content before).
- Remember last opened file path during session.
- Began implementing plugin interface (nothing to see yet, except plugin placeholder).
- Unescape downloaded file names.
- Protected tab and status labels against MUI escape-sequences abuses.
- URL filecomment wasn't written correctly when downloading to a SFS partition.
- Bookmarks menuitems are now updated in realtime too.
- QuickLink group reworked and (hopefully) fixed for pre-2.x MUI versions. It also offers more layout options.
- Don't move downloaded entry to finished tab in case current size is greater than advertised file size (which can happen with on-the-fly gzip unpacking).
- Fixed some issues with window/tab titles sometimes showing wrong label.
- Cosmetics here and there in the GUI.
- Use shared jpeg and png libraries.

This version is well advanced, far more than the OS4 one. (thanks to Fab)

Would it be possible for the developpers to work together in order to accelerate improvements to benefit to all OWB versions (MOS, AROS, OS4)?

It may be not easy, as OS4 version uses different GUI toolkit.

I agree! As much as possible, that would be great.

in a perfect world the (g)ui should be separated as much as possible from the "other" code.

@MichaelMerkel

true, but the AROS, OS4 and MorphOS ports are already something like 80% about GUI code. The whole logic below is totally generic to OWB and doesn't need many modifications.

But maybe MorphOS and AROS version can be merged and then ported to 68k and OS4 using MUI

This could be a good solution for all the Amiga platform !
