Version 0.07 of the Iconv module is now available for download. This is a
recommended update for all users - new builds of NetSurf will require it.
New in this version:
* Encoding aliases are now stored in an external file - Unicode:Files.Aliases
* ReadAliases command to force re-read of above.
Fixed in this version:
* Corrected output values for E2BIG errors.
* Fixed input pointer update after successful conversion.
Changed in this version:
* Modified the menu creation API to store indirected text in
user-provided buffer. This change is backwards incompatible.
Iconv is a module providing character set conversion facilities for
third-party applications. It is currently used by a number of
applications, most notably NetSurf. UnixLib's iconv support also requires
Updating from earlier versions
If updating from earlier versions, please perform _both_ a !Boot and
!System merge with the contents of the Iconv distribution archive as
documented in the installation section of the ReadMe file.

Could the first line in the !Boot file be changed from:
Set NetSurf$Dir <Obey$Dir>
If "<NetSurf$Dir>" = "" Then Set NetSurf$Dir <Obey$Dir>
This would hopefully keep things organised when there's more than one copy
of NetSurf on a computer.

I think you need to raise a bug report. It does the same for me with a
directory called h or i but other letters I've tried including g and j
work OK. Very strange.

Could not give a better subject
With this build Themes have departed
My Hotlist has gone
This browser is now rejecting cookies
The last item makes Ebay use difficult
Can someone resolve these issues please though my lose of the hotlist
is probably unrecoverable
Wey Hey we're like monkeys...I can use tools too!
I have recently moved house and changed ISP to a broadband connection
behind a firewall ( running SuSE Linux ). I have an Iyonix and another SuSE
linux box (my laptop) behind the firewall at the moment.
From the Iyonix ONLY there is a time-out loading the Barclays Bank
log-in document (http://www.ibank.barclays.co.uk/) - and for NO OTHER
document that I have tried (several hundred over the last week or so)
whether using http or https. I thought at first that this was a specific
Netsurf (9 Feb build) problem - but I tried three other browsers and all
four seem to resolve the address correctly - using the name servers of my
ISP - but all time out in retrieving - irrespective of any masquerading as
Mozilla or something else.
At first I thought this was a site problem - but tried my linux laptop
and Firefox worked in a flash - but Firefox doesn't work on the Iyonix - it
times out too!
I suspect that there is something weird, but I cannot get an error log
- in particular Netsurf log of messages passed to/fro - no stderr.
I realise it has to be something to do with network configuration -
which has an IP address taken from the host name (192.168.42.1) and the
firewall as gateway (192.168.42.2). Apart from setting the gateway nothing
else has changed - no entries in the route file - not running routed nor
acting as IP router - using the Acorn resolver - two external name servers
(the other side of the firewall).
Has anyone else had this problem and solved it? Failing that is there
a way that I can get Netsurf to log the traffic so that I can get some idea
of what is really happening?
Any thoughts most gratefully received!
I ran into what I think is a cacheing problem yesterday. I was trying
to use a form on the web site to update the database. I made a mistake
and entered a date as 2004 instead of 2006. However many times I tried
to correct it, the date still kept coming back as 2004. Even after I
deleted the entry and put in a new one it came back! I couldn't update
any of the text fields either.
I then moved to another browser and was able to view the updated entry
successfully. There are two forms (add and update/delete entry) which
are handled by the ASPs which created them. They do not use pragma
nocache but I have not seen this problem with any other browser
including Windows browsers.

This option's been around since July last year, and has been mentioned
here several times since then. How long have you been reading this list?
