NetSurf 3.6 web browser released!

Download http://cy2.uk/netsurfos3

Memory fragemention problem is now solved thanks to Olaf Barthel's work.

It requires :

OS3.5/9 32mb ram.
guigfx and render libraries.

Netsurf itself doesn't require FPU, but render library does.

This is real desktop version based official source tree here :

http://www.netsurf-browser.org/downloads/source/

Chris Young is looking for a help to get all features same level than OS4 version has.

DNADNL has made nice automated script for compiling, so nobody shouln't have problems to compile this. It downloads latest sources and compiles them. Making thing easier for those who would like to tinker with code.

https://github.com/DNADNL/NetScript

PS. It is also in aminet.net upload queue.

Thanks for the work done

The Browser It has greatly improved, I find it even faster, these are the problems encountered (I attach screenshots):

- Small fonts on Web pages
- The Prefs you can not save a larger font, request requires disk fonts
- If you choose a script from the menu "SMTube" it is required volume?
- If you try to do a Zoom the graphics will ruin,because of my configuration AFA:OS?

-Small fonts problem is mostlikely also because of AFA OS
-I don't have that problem, AFA OS? You can modify settings file manually user/choises
-It is direct port odf OS4 version. There is no SMTube for OS3.5/9 Chris should remove that entry.

I also tried AFA OS long time ago, but with real amiga it was too much slowdown and I got tens of little problems.

PS. Java is not enabled By default.

I solved the problem by deleting the directory "user", now on AFA NetSurf it's perfect

You can get it here http://aminet.net/package/comm/net/AmiTCP-bin-30b2

You don't need to install AmiTCP just copy usergroup.library to libs.

You shouldn't have memory problems, it works just fine with 32mb ram.

But you should report your problem to Chris

(A600 Vampire setup with MCP. WB 3.9 Boingball 1 and 2)

When trying to start Netsurf-nofpu I get "Unable to initialise the font system", and SnoopDos fails to open Fonts/DejaVuSans.tt (I guess .ttf, and that Snoopdos window is cutting off the last letter).

Obviously I dont have that font in my Fonts directory. Just posting to see if its something else that would produce such a output beyond missing font...?
And where can I download this font?

I copied the fonts from my AOS 4 FE Classic CD, but it still gives the same error. (Failed on Snoopdos).

you copied *.font *.otag and the corresponding _TrueType/*.ttf file ?
preserved the path structure?

example:
fonts:dejaVu Sans Mono Oblique.font
fonts:dejaVu Sans Mono Oblique.otag
fonts:_TruType/DejaVuSansMono-Oblique.ttf

#1) just found this FTManager on aminet.
this one can produce the *.font / *.otag files, if you provide it the *.ttf font

yep, frustrating. you can try to make snoopdos more verbose, by selecting "Functions" -> System/Amiga DOS ---> ALL ( next to the red pointer ).
should output more information this way

You are talking about Arti's SDL / Frambuffer hack.

I haven't had that kind of font problems with Netsurf.

do you use the version from the 1st posting?
make sure you have AmigaOS 3.5 or 3.9.
