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?
Yes. r9802 introduced an incompatible API change to libcss, and the
autobuilder is not intelligent enough to know which version of libcss it
should be building NetSurf against.
Additionally, we're rather more interested in completing the new cache
implementation than we are in fixing this issue. Doubly so as I've
vetoed any such fix being applied to the trunk code as it will conflict
badly with the new cache work.
There have been very few modifications to the trunk code since the
autobuilder stopped, so you're not missing out on much.
I know it is the last released RO version
No. The last released version of NetSurf (on all platforms) is version
2.1. Development builds are just that. We make absolutely no guarantees
about their stability or, indeed, their general availability.
, 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.
I assume that you're compiling this yourself?
As an aside on the GTK version, is there a way to see from the
executable what the release number is in the same way that the RO Info
menu option does?
Help->About will show you. If you compile it yourself, however, it will
not show you the exact SVN revision the sources came from. This
information is inserted by the autobuilder.
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.
Please ensure that you are using revision 9801 of libcss. NetSurf is
currently unable to use anything more modern than that.
