Whilst we're on the subject of plug-ins, that just reminded me -
somebody was asking the other day about plug-ins in NetSurf. I know
the RISC OS version has the Acorn plugin protocol, but is it possible
to use a similar approach to implement the Netscape plugin API on
For platforms that have NSAPI then, as François says, there's
nspluginwrapper to work with. For anything else, pass.
However, I disabled the RISC OS plugin support as, in certain
circumstances, it can take out the browser. I know why, it's just a
somewhat large job to fix (it's related to the gui_multitask mess).
Estimate of amount of work required? I have little incentive to do
this myself until there is evidence of somebody writing/porting a
useful plug-in, but I may tackle it in the future if it's not a big
hassle rewrite type job.
I think the above answers this :) It's something that should probably
happen at some point, but, as you say, there's no pressing need, and
it's probably too much effort right now.
