It is that time of year again and I am preparing to create the 2.9
The wiki page for the release is at
Unless any new show stopping bugs appear I shall be creating the 2.9
branch on the evening of Saturday 25th February 2012
For the release itself we aim to be created four weeks subsequently on
March 24th but this may change if more testing is required or it is
decided we are happy before then.
this patch adds support for a new variable - "LIBDIR" within .pc
This patch is an prerequisite to allow further patches to have variable
lib target dir
during build of netsurf libs (libparserutils, hubbub, etc.).
This is "mandatory" at least for freemint compiler. But I guess also
x64 builds can
make use of that.
The freemint toolchain uses:
Currently, the build can only be cleanly done for /lib.
Here is the patch ( also attached ):

I'm looking for ideas for my development team
Is it possible to use css in objective c. The purpose is to build templates
applications for iphone where we can easily modify the code to have changes
done in the colors, etc.
Where is the code to redraw the core select menu, after the user has
selected something? I can see where it clears the menu area (line 220
of html_interaction.c), but it doesn't redraw the original form item
at that point. It is getting redrawn somewhere else though, as I'm
getting artifacts from old redraws over the area, but it doesn't
update as it should.
The NetSurf Developer weekend will be taking place on the 24th and
25th March in Cambridge, UK.
The rough plan is to arrive in Cambridge on Friday afternoon/evening
and have a social meetup, possibly involving food. Go to the meeting
rooms on Saturday and Sunday and work on NetSurf with food and snack
breaks as required.
Collabora are going to sponsor the event by providing access to their
The address of the location is:
Cambridge CB1 2JH
Google maps ref http://goo.gl/maps/F1CG and the location is very close
to the railway station.
For building security purposes all physical attendees *must* register
(send me an email at least a week before the event) with Name, email
and contact details.
Already Registered are:
Assistance with accommodation is available and I have a vehicle for
collecting and dropping people off from wherever they are
staying. There are a *very* limited number of parking spaces available
at Kett house if necessary.
If you would like to join us for what is usually a very productive and
enjoyable weekend please let me know as soon as you can.
My apologies if this is not the proper forum to post this, but we would love to hire someone to implement support for box-shadow, border-radius, and text-shadow in libcss (parsing + computing only, no need to render). The additions to libcss would, of course, be contributed back to the open source project.
Please let me know if you're interested. I thought we'd try this route before attempting to implement it ourselves.
If you're curious, we're using libcss in our fork of the libcss-osx framework (https://github.com/jhammer/libcss-osx) for our app Direct Mail (http://directmailmac.com).
