Is anyone else finding that the new Cache feature does not seem to
expire its content?
I wondered a few weeks ago why the main harddrive on the Iyonix was
filling up more quickly than I thought it should. I found the Netsurf
cache was close to 10 GB in size. Netsurf was configured for a cache
maximum of 1 GB with expiry set to 10 days. Randomly checking
datestamps of some of the files in the cache showed them to be weeks
and even months old. I had been assuming that (a) old files would be
deleted after the configured expiry time and (b) if the cache size
approached the configured maximum size, then the older files would be
deleted anyway to keep the size under the limit. I deleted the whole
cache at the time, and it is well under 1 GB at the moment, although
checking a few random datestamps, there are certainly files going
back to early August, even with an expiry now set to 7 days.
I checked on the PandaBoard today and lo and behold, the cache
contained more than 8 GB of files. This machine was also configured
for a 1 GB max and 10 days expiry. I have now deleted and disabled
the cache on the PandaRO.
On all my machines I use recent versions of RISC OS 5.21, and recent
development versions of Netsurf.
Am I misunderstanding what the cache settings are?
I received an email from Genes Reunited containing a link. Clicking
on that gives
HTTP Error 503.0 - Service Unavailable
It lists as "Most likely causes"
An invalid identity in the application pool could cause this error.
The application pool is no longer running because of configuration
or reaching application failure limits.
The concurrent application request limit was reached.
It also tells me that "This error occurs when the worker process was
unable to start."
Accessing the Genes Reunited website from a PC seems to show no
problems so it is possible that NetSurf can't yet handle the link. It
it will be of help I can add it to the bug tracker.
I'm running NetSurf on an ARMini with RO5.20. This error occurs with
both NetSurf 2311 and 2381.
When searching for vacancies on this website:
(click on the "search" button")
I get an error "A possible security violation has been detected on
displaying this page".
Anyone know what's going on? I'll report it using the "Website
Feedback Form" if it's not to do with Netsurf. (Feedback form *does*
look like it works but haven't actually filled it out yet)
I suspect this is an Atari only issue (build 2369).
When the mouse is over the Netsurf window, pressing F6 does
nothing but move the mouse outside the window and F6 opens
the Hotlist immediately.

I donwloaded 3.3 (Dev) EXPERIMENTAL on 16 November and have used it
since then. So far, there has been one crash, which occurred after I had
launched several urls from Google News. While I was reading one page it
seems that another page,which was still loading,caused the crash. The
log is at https://dl.dropbox.com/u/77062274/log.zip
Since then, no problem. I've not noticed any performance difference as
compared to the 'normal' 3.3 builds.
RiscPC, RISC OS 6.20
I have built a copy of RISC OS NetSurf using a much newer version of the
compiler (GCCSDK's prerelease based on 4.7). If people could give a few
minutes to playing with it to give us some confidence of it working,
that'd be great. (Also any comments on performance difference, better
or worse, would be of interest.)
I have discovered that attempting to complete forms rendered in 3.3 (Dev
CI #2327) can crash NetSurf and stiff the computer. In particular ists,
where one selects from a list to complete the form, fail to show the list
and everything hangs - here anyway.
Bug report raised (after reverting to an earlier NetSurf to circumvent
this problem on the tracker).
Virtual RPC-AdjustSA on Windows 8.1 Pro
RISC OS 6.20
Sometimes I have noticed that when exiting Netsurf it
says it cannot save the hotlist.
I have noticed this issue for months but only recently
made a connection.
It only seems to occur whenever I have used the "View source"
It could be that the editor I am using to view the source
is holding a file lock but why would it lock the hotlist ?
Currently using Atari build 2327.
I noticed recently (from another posting) that (some) other platforms seem
to still have Save as PDF which was implemented under RISC OS and later
I was wondering about the status of this, as it seemed like a miracle at
I know we can still use the Drawfile export and print to a PDF file, but
the direct option seemed so much more elegant!
