Software News   Software News : Timberwolf Alpha 1 released
   posted by RuDeE on 9-Jun-2010 15:29:19 (16252 reads)
From Amigabounty.net:

Quote:

We have to apologize for the long absence. Workload, personal issues and other things slowed down development considerably.

However, we're finally able to make the first binary release of Timberwolf. This is going to be an Alpha version, meaning it will be prone to crashing and misbehavior, it will be slow, and not all functionality is implemented yet.

Future plans include an update to the latest baseline source code of Firefox (3.7 beta), an Amiga-specific theme, as well as a major rewrite of the rendering code. The current version of the rendering code (Did we mention it's an alpha release ?) has some conceptual problems that will lead to misrenderings, and massive overdraw (some webpages might be rendered 2 to 8 times, you may notice the window will turn black several times during page buildup).

Feedback is welcome; please point your browsers at http://amigans.net and visit the Timberwolf support forum.

Have fun with the first release.

Great job guys.

Thanks,

@drHirudo

Thank you for your video. As I suspected it's not dog slow as people claimed it to be. I bet it will get even faster without debug code inside. Awesome day in Amigaland.

Great work, Friedens.

Was unable to post from my Sam, but hey, it's an alpha :). It's already nice.

What amazes me about its speed, is that developers clearly stated that for a series of reasons, what we are seeing is actually way slower than what we'll get in the final version, if we sum Final Version+X1000 we might get one of the fastest FF implementations ever (because let's face it, in theory this thing shouldn't even start on my Sam, instead, glitches aside, it performs pretty well in Alpha stage!)

While I admire The Brothers' work on Firefox for OS4 your statement is groundless.

@meet.mrnrg

JAmiga was released about five years ago so it is not exactly new There is even 68k JIT backend to boost Java programs on the OS 3.1.

@hyperion

Congrats!
