Please test the latest build. This should fix a bug which prevented many
pages from displaying with an 'Unknown type' error (the charset wasn't being
removed from the content type before comparing with text/html).
There's also experimental JPEG support, but only for standalone images (there
is one linked from the intro page), not images in a page. This uses the JPEG
rendering module in RISC OS 3.6 and later, so won't work on earlier versions.
Please mail me stderr from failures as usual.
I downloaded 20030209_1945/zip
and found that NetSurf does not download anything off the Internet. Local
html files are ok, but Internet addresses like the http://www.riscos.com/
mentioned don't do anything. I just get a 'connect failed' message.
I've given it a 28MB wimpslot.
I'm running RISC OS 4.29 on a SA RiscPC via the ANT suite and a 512K cable
Do I need any other files?

I've just checked in some major changes. The changes are mostly rewrites and
improvements of existing code. The only visible change should be better
multitasking while fetching.
+ rewrote fetching to use the curl multi interface
+ new cache code
+ fetchcache interface for using the cache or fetcher transparently
+ added content handler interface
I have also started documenting the code in the file 'developer'. The aim of
these changes is to work towards implementing images and external
stylesheets. A number of files have moved to more logical places and obsolete
files have been removed, so if you are using CVS I suggest a clean checkout
to a new directory.
A new build is available at http://netsurf.strcprstskrzkrk.co.uk/
Please email me log files directly instead of sending them to this list,
because they can be very big. I've only been able to test file: urls, since
I'm testing under emulation.
