you say that Hubbub is still under active development and has not had
official release, but the previous page on the website says that Netsurf
now uses Hubbub as of 11th August 2008. Should this say the Netsurf that
developers are working on now uses Hubbub, or was the parser released?
Hubbub as a standalone component for use by other developers in their
applications has not been released as it is currently missing some amount
of functionality and does not yet have a totally stable API. There are
other factors, too, but these are the main ones.
Test builds of NetSurf have indeed been using Hubbub since the 11th
August. That's because we:
a) don't desperately need the features that Hubbub is currently missing
(though they'll be useful once they appear)
b) are quite happy to fix NetSurf every time Hubbub's API changes
There is no release version of NetSurf that includes Hubbub. NetSurf 2.0,
when it is released, will include Hubbub.
