Sometime after r8950 - 1st Aug 2009, accessing my French bank results in
this error at the password box appearing stage:
Sorry, NetSurf was unable to display this page
Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to
- so something changed after that version.

crash upon deleting a text area
by Jim Nagel
is this a known problem, or does it happen just to me?
i'm typing a message to a forum in one of those text-input boxes.
in order to move some bits around more easily, i decided to copy what
i'd written and paste it into a text editor. luckily i did the paste
first, for as soon as i deleted the original, Netsurf crashed.
whereupon i recalled that this had happened to me in the past, but
don't think i reported it at the time.
will send bug report and logfile. using NS r9799 on RO 4.39.

Until not long ago, using NetSurf (09 Jan 2010 00:15) r9799 to visit
http://maps.google.com/?output=html&oi=nojs enabled maps to be accessed.
Now, when I visit that link, shortly after the page is displayed,
NetSurf downloads a 'text' file named 'm' (which is actually a wml file
containing various Google links). Disregarding the spurious download,
entering a placename in the search-box and clicking 'Search maps' leads
to a page containing a writable icon, at top left, and nothing else
(formerly, it led to a page displaying a map).
Can anyone please confirm this problem. If so, does anyone know of a
link to Google Maps which still works?
Website development updates?
by Grahame Parish
Not a complaint, but I check the NetSurf website daily to see what the
latest development changes have been. Is there any reason why the
last change shown on the website is r9799? I know it is the last
released RO version, at least as far as RiscPkg is concerned. I have
recently refreshed the version I run on Ubuntu, which appears to be at
least release 10030, but there's no indication on the site of what
changes have been implemented.
As an aside on the GTK version, is there a way to see from the running
executable what the release number is in the same way that the RO Info
menu option does?
I can't currently get a GTK version to compile, with css-related
errors during compilation. I can't pass on the details at present,
but I'll make a note next time I try.
NetSurf partly works on the BeagleBoard
by Dave Higton
I don't know if anyone else has tried it, but I have... NetSurf
r9799 on a BeagleBoard renders my (text only) web site!
It falls over on the BBC News site a fraction of a second after
first drawing the window. I've caught a log and I'll attempt a
I'm most impressed!
