I just downloaded the latest NetSurf (June 15) and was pleased to see that
the little graphical history window appears to work properly. It did work
intermittently before-hand but some pages didn't have a thumbnail, but now,
after a quick bit of testing it does seem to give me a thumbnail for each
page - including my intranet page, which never worked previously.

That's because the last change made to the main NetSurf tree was on June
17th. We don't automatically build branches, nor do we build other
products that happen to be located in the NetSurf SVN repository. The
logs of recent SVN activity on the NetSurf website are only updated when
the autobuilder performs a build.
A cursory glance at the full SVN history indicates that there have been
98 commits to SVN since the last change to the main tree.

My SARPC, 128MB, RO6.06, NS (17 Jun 2008) r4376, fetched pages 1-12
simultaneously, without any problem. The socket count reduced from 89 to
69, and then returned to 89, when the fetch was complete. NetSurf used
about 10MB of memory. The machine behaved normally throughout.

that it happens on other people's setups. I'm not totally sure it's a

Wait until the page has rendered, then click on "Next".

Quitting NS seems to reset things.
Other systems here don't appear to have any problems accessing the
site (Firefox under Linux and Windows XP), so I don't think our local
LAN/router are at fault. RISC OS Firefox also seems to cope.

I can't really report this as a bug because I can't provide any
evidence, but all the jpeg images started coming out as grey
rectangles of the correct size. Gifs were OK. I tried the same sites
with Oregano and they were OK. I quit NetSurf and re-ran it, and the
problem disappeared. Very strange. Has this happened to anybody else?

Yes -- "(in branches/adamblokus/netsurf)".
Test builds are only created for trunk/netsurf.

We do not provide binary downloads for any platform other than RISC OS. If
you want to run NetSurf on BeOS, then you will have to compile it from
See http://www.netsurf-browser.org/documentation/develop#Subversion for
how to get the source code.
See http://source.netsurf-browser.org/trunk/netsurf/Docs/BUILDING-BeOS for
I'm not entirely sure if all the changes needed to build NetSurf for BeOS
are currently committed to our SVN repository.
