Hello IBrowse users!

IBrowse 2.5.7 is now available, which is the seventh free update for
registered owners of IBrowse 2.5. IBrowse 2.1-2.4 and 1.x owners may
upgrade to IBrowse 2.5.7 via our store at discounted rates.

Please note: IBrowse 2.5.7 requires AmiSSL 5.5, so you are advised
to download it before updating IBrowse, otherwise you will be left
without HTTPS access.

Both IBrowse 2.5.7 and AmiSSL 5.5 may be downloaded via our website
at http://www.ibrowse-dev.net or with AmiUpdate. AmiSSL 5.5 is also
available from Aminet.

This is a maintenance release with a few fixes and improvements,
including these main changes:

- Reworked Brotli huffman decoder to avoid triggering a bug on the
68060 processor, which prevented pages from loading
- Tweaks to the loading of external modules
- JavaScript improvements
- Switched to GCC 11, with all warnings enabled, which identified
numerous previously unknown bugs which have now been fixed
- Hundreds of minor internal changes

See http://www.ibrowse-dev.net/2.5/history.php for the full unedited
list of changes.

Thank you, Oliver, much appreciated!
Already downloaded and installed. As far as I can tell everything is working like a charm.
Great to see IBrowse is still alive and kicking.
kind regards,

I've updated the 2.5.7 release archives with a new javascript.library
(4.23), due to an issue in 4.22. It's safe to simply download the
updated archive and run the installer again. Anybody who downloaded it
before 2030 UTC today will have the old version.

I always seem to find stumble on a bug as soon as I hit the release
button, that went unnoticed for several weeks during development and
beta testing!

That probably explains why both archives were 404'ing in IB & Aup a few
minutes ago!

But then it worked just now.

Thanks Oliver!!

All updates are available for both OS3/68k and OS4/PPC. This will
continue to be the case for the foreseeable future.
