    Articles: NetSurf 2.8 released

    Tuesday, September 27, 2011 - 10:44 AM, (6044 Reads)

    The NetSurf developers have made available the newest stable version of RISC OS' premier web browser, NetSurf. 2.8 sees a number of major improvements and fixes over previous versions, and as always, it's free to download - NetSurf is also available for other platforms, BeOS/Haiku, Linux, AmigaOS and Atari are amongst the supported systems. In order to run on a RISC OS system, RISC OS 4.02, 6 or 5.07 is required as a minimum, as well as a number of modules which can be downloaded freely online. NetSurf 2.8 adds support for frames and iframers on all platforms, MIME stype sniffing and a new image cache. Image decoding can now be deferred until images are required, this ultimately results in faster load times.

    Vertical layouts of boxes and margin and handling have been improved in this new update, the layout engine has been optimised in order not to calculate word widths when not required. Internal content management has been improved, as well as fixes to the build system and simplified status bar text.

    RISC OS specific changes include an improved Adjust double-click handling in treeviews, consolidated content handlers for ArtWorks, Draw and Paint, removed redundant code specific to old RISC OS frame and iframe implimentation and more.

    For a full list of changes, fixes and improvements visit the NetSurf website, where a detailed changelog is available. NetSurf homepage -
