Software : : Odyssey v1.16 released!
Posted By: takemehomegrandma. on 2011/12/26 16:25:12
Fabien Coeurjoly has now released v1.16 of his WebKit-based browser Odyssey. Here is a list of changes since v1.15...

- 24.12.2011: Odyssey Web Browser 1.16
- Updated to WebKit r103170 (December 2011).
- Added Postscript printing support.
- Added PRINT REXX command.
- Connected JavascriptCore print method to the printing system.
- Reworked PDF export to produce more usable output dimensions.
- Added an option to define if a popup should open in a tab or a window.
- The page where a download is coming from (when available) is now also stored
and can be restored from download manager contextmenu.
- Enabled large file support in Curl (>4GB files, assuming the underlying filesystem
supports it).
- Make F11 key (fullscreen toggle) also work in the video overlay area.
- Disable blanker when entering video overlay mode.
- A quicklink wouldn't be updated properly after its URL was changed in bookmarks.
- Make the webview object active after a provisional load event, to be able to tab-cycle
between the page form elements without clicking the webview first.
- Fixed a crash issue with the imp.free.fr webmail (old version). It was a deadly
combination of the 417 status code handling and frame disposal.
- Fixed an issue in authentication process happening for instance with system.ch server.
- In middle mouse button scrolling mode, releasing button over a link would open
the link.
- Updated Youtube.js

    No go here. Any URL says, "sending request..." and the application dies. Tried it several times. Back to 1.15 for me.

    Travis_H, weird behaviour, you didn't opened OWB 1.15 to download OWB 1.16 and then run OWB 1.16 without any reboot ?

    Ouch, that's rather unusual. You can always send a debug log, but i'd say there's something particular with your setup, somehow.

    Just in case, which version of MorphOS do you have? I think your issue might be related to charsets.library and the includes i compiled it with for this version. So make sure you have MorphOS 2.7.

    I love to have a state-of-the-art browser- that was one of the key requirements that was met leading to my decision for MorphOS.

    Thanks to everyone involved for making this possible!

    I noticed a small issue in this version. The right click menu items "Open link in new window/new tab" seem to be overridden by the current "popup policy" setting. So for example if I want to open a link in a new window and popup policy is set to "new tab" it will only open tabs instead of windows.

    @realstar,

    Yes, indeed. Overlooked that. You can still drag the tab out of the window if you need a new window, as a workaround.

    I'm running MOS 2.7 on a MacMini. I've tried running it several times and it just doesn't work here. Installed to it's own directory and opened it before falling back to 1.15. Rebooted and tried again.

    How do I submit a log for you to look at?

    Explain him WHERE charsets.library is so that he can check the version he has installed.
    In not on a morphos machine now but if I remember correctly it should be in SYS:libs. Check your charsets.library version and report it.

    Well, it's a library supplied with MorphOS itself, so it's in Sys:MorphOS/libs, and if Travis has installed 2.7 he should have the correct one needed by this version of OWB.

    Anyway, i'll just wait for the debug log. :)

    it could have been overwritten by an older version. Other Apps uses and installs that library. YAM is the first example that comes in my mind..

    Actually no, YAM use codesets.library. charsets.library is exclusive to MorphOS (it might still have been overwritten for some reason, but not by a 3rd party app, at least :)).

    Is it possible to add a column which shows the moment (date and time)
    of a successful download in download window?

    Now that I found out that it's possible to use StumbleUpon in OWB, I frequently run into what I believe could be Webkit's excessive memory usage bug. Stumbling will eat up my RAM site by site until I restart and OWB releases all occupied memory reliably.

    It remembers it here. But I made OWB default settings rather conservative (avoid storing private data by default), so go to OWB settings -> privacy, and enable "save cookies", and also "save form credentials" (and anything else you might need).

    I use the lovely feature Screen to back by MMB.. in case of OWB screen its not very practical. You think you could add an option "Disable system's MMB behaviour when OWB screen/window is active" so it would not interfere with browsing?

    Also, about pagescrolling.. any chance of "click MMB once, scroll freely" like other browsers do? Keeping mousebutton pressed when scrolling just does not feel right.


    Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure i can actually bypass Intuition Hotkeys (except by some high priority input handler, maybe, but that would be ugly). So the only alternative is to let the user define the hotkey for this function instead (which is boring, of course :)).

    There are two mmb scrolling modes: first is triggered by a single mmb click, and second by a double mmb click, which spawns some "move" cursor, which probably does what you want.

    Aha ok.. I have missed this as my screen changes with first click, of course :)

    Thank you for this new version of the owbrowser! It really looks great.
    One thing I was looking forward to was the direct printing option, the gui
    looks cool ... but my printer does not work with it. Maybe someone else
    could check if I'm the only user with such problems?!
    My printer is a HP Laserjet 6 and it works with ghostscript and amigawriter
    or wordworth.

    Thank you!

    Sorry, I should have asked how to CREATE a log for you.

    In the meantime, my charsets.library is listed as:

    Well, that's it. This version is too old and will cause the crash for a binary compiled with newer includes. You should have:
    charsets.library 52.1 (26/09/2010) (supplied with 2.7)

    Now i wonder why this library wasn't updated for you (or maybe it was overwritten later for some reason).

    About logging, assuming you boot with the ramdebug option at boot (or just rd), you can get it by several ways:
    - getramdebuglog in a shell, the output being morphos.log in the current dir by default.
    - debug.sbar (you can view and save the log with its menu)
    - logtool ( http://morphos-files.net/download/LogTool ), that allows viewing the log in realtime, and much more.

    If you have another machine and either serial cable or firewire, you can also get the log there (which is useful for hard freezes), but let's ignore this for now. ;) :-x

    If I select "Print to File" in the printer prefs, what can I do with the outputted file? Ideally, I'd like to use it as a .pdf and send it to my HP eprint printer, since I have nothing physically connected to MorphOS.

    As a side note, I used the Print as PDF option quite a bit in OWB, but have noticed the last 1/2" is cut off. Normally not a problem, but tonight it chopped off half of an important RMA number for some warranty work. Is there a way you can have OWB scale the image down a bit to make it all fit?

    Thanks,

    You could just print to "ram:blah.ps" in OWB print dialog as Output, and then convert it to pdf if needed.
    Of course, you're right in uising the save to pdf option, but unlike the printer dialog, there's no scale option there, unfortunately. :)

    I tried to load Parcel2go.com's website but it failed to load, and it seems the problem is related to SSL as the link automatically loads an SSL page, though this may not be the only reason that OWB 1.17 doesn't load the page/site.

    Will you take a look into what's causing this problem.
