Happy Easter everybody! IBrowse 2.5.4 is now available for download from www.ibrowse-dev.net (OS4 users may use AmiUpdate instead). This is mainly a maintenance release with refinements and improvements to new features introduced in IBrowse 2.5. Some development work has also been done on HTML <iframe> support (which Stefan started during IBrowse 2.4 development), but this remains disabled in public releases until it is deemed stable. We hope to have addressed all of the issues raised since the release of IBrowse 2.5.3 last year:
  • Fixed crash when modifying strings in the spoof settings, which occurred with older MUI versions
  • Tweaked default fastlink URLs, whilst adding EAB.abime.net
  • 68k: Fixed drawer icon inheritance setting
  • Removed call to deprecated MUI_Error() function
  • Completely abandoned bidirectional SSL shutdowns due to some servers being broken and not replying properly, which caused HTTPS connections to hang and never complete
  • Updated Polish language catalog
  • OS4: Fixed AmiUpdate not updating the Norwegian catalog
  • Updated PNG decoder using libpng 1.6.37
  • Fixed possible reference to freed memory for secure pages when updating the status bar
  • Detect incomplete gzip encoded downloads, flagging them as an error and allowing the auto resume feature to handle them too
  • Added handling of marginwidth, marginheight, border and scrolling attributes for <iframe> elements
  • Fixed broken JavaScript in iframes, due to wrong (parent) context being used
  • Skip alternative content for iframes when iframes enabled
  • Fixed crash when freeing pages with nested iframes
  • Image links and maps now default to showing no border
  • Border now rendered for non-linked image elements when specified
  • 68k: Downgraded locale.library requirement from V39 to V38, for Workbench 3.0 compatibility
  • Fixed crash that would happen should locale.library fail to open
  • Fixed case where HTTPS connections did not finish loading due to some servers not responding to an SSL shutdown, when the disk cache was disabled
This is the fourth free update for registered users of IBrowse 2.5. IBrowse 2.4 and 1.x users may upgrade to IBrowse 2.5.4 via our store at discounted rates.

AmiSSL 4.9 has also been released today and can also be obtained via the IBrowse download page, AmiUpdate on OS4 or from Aminet soon. AmiSSL has been updated to use the latest OpenSSL 1.1.1k, released last week, which brings security and bug fixes. See the full list of AmiSSL 4.9 changes at https://github.com/jens-maus/amissl/releases/4.9. AmiSSL 4.9 is fully backwards compatible with most existing applications that use AmiSSL v4, including IBrowse.

Thank you for both of these, downloaded and running both now.
