Changelog (from http://strohmayer.org/
* 1.6 (24.1.2008)
o No changes in the code, but it's now using shared libicu#? objects instead of statically linking the same 10 MB in each version again.
* 1.5 (22.1.2008)
o Updated to SVN revision 232.
o Built using shared objects, you have to copy libSDL-1.2.so from http://www.rcdrummond.net/sdl/SDL-1.2.11_20080121-AmigaOS4_shared.lha to SOBJS:.
* 1.4 (17.1.2008)
o Now opens clicked links with target "_blank", which would open in new tab or window in a real browser, in the same frame ("_self") instead of ignoring them.
o Added a workaround for the SDL charset bug, now you can enter all chars of your system default charset which don't need a dead key.
* 1.3 (15.1.2008)
o Added the experimental web UI and made it the default start page. There are lots of problems with it (back/forward doesn't work, PgUp/PgDown doesn't work, ...), but it's probably better than nothing. Of course you can still start OWB with a different start page by passing an URL as argument.
o Changed default window size to 960 x 720.
o Enabled two pass loading.
o Added a workaround for a memory trashing bug, http://wikipedia.org/ main page is working now (http://en.wikipedia.org/ still doesn't, 100% CPU usage without displaying anything).
o More optimizions in the memory allocator.
o Disabled GIF animations for now, they slow down everything too much.
o Chars which need <alt> can be entered now, but the AmigaOS4 SDL seems to ignore the charset, for chars not in ISO-8859-1 you get something different.
* 1.2 (11.1.2008)
o Updated to SVN revision 224.
o Now cleanly exit()s if running out of memory instead of crashing, most parts of OWB don't check if allocating memory succeeded.
o Reworked the memory allocator, should be nearly as fast as the original one.
