Beta 5 release (2015-04-01)

Fifth beta has been released!

It’s not a joke, it’s finally here!

Now I should write something funny, like adding image of main window with all toolbars hidden (just web view plus window decorations) and add caption: “We are even better than Chrome, we don’t have UI at all!”. πŸ˜‰

Most important changes since beta 4:

  • experimental backend for QtWebEngine (Blink), disabled by default;
  • added advanced options for cookies;
  • added interface for configuring toolbars;
  • added support for bookmark bars;
  • added Ctrl+Tab tab switcher;
  • added support for taking notes;
  • added interface to deny or grant permission to use geolocation etc. (set of available permissions depends on what is supported by backend);
  • restore tab position when restoring closed tab;
  • tabs are now drawn horizontally in vertical toolbars.

Known issues:

  • use of “Always ask” option for cookies might lead to crash;
  • opening links in new tab can cause crash – fixed in hotfix.

As usually I would like to thank all contributors (again especially bajasoft and Chocimier), bug reporters, translators and all users.

Source and binary packages are available at sf.net downloads page, (update: there are now new packages containing important hotfix).

According to GitHub Pulse last week gave us:

  • 32 commits by two authors,
  • 5 new issues (7 closed),
  • 39 issues still open (including 3 bugs).

Most interesting changes being support for custom profiles for keyboard shortcuts and action macros (still missing configuration UI) and option to delay loading of tab contents until it gets selected.

Next week will bring second alpha release which should contain some more customization options, like custom menu layouts and possibly initial work on toolbars configuration.

Weekly report #3 (2014-01-20)

Numbers for last seven days:

  • 28 commits since previous report (plus 3 “fake”, created by github merges),
  • 3 pull requests (all merged),
  • 9 issues created,
  • 34 issues still open (including 2 bugs).

Initial proxy support (still missing handling of PAC files) was finally merged (thanks bajasoft), work on support for custom keyboard shortcuts is still ongoing (takes longer than expected but is almost done).

Thanks for all pull requests and feedback. πŸ™‚

Weekly report #2 (2014-01-13)

Current numbers:

  • 31 commits since previous report (plus 4 “fake”, created by github merges),
  • 7 pull requests (4 merged),
  • 34 issues created (still most of ther are wishes and tasks),
  • 32 issues still open (including 5 bugs).

Except some drafts of new configuration pages there are almost no user visible changes in recent commits.

But some new stuff is being worked on, like proxy support or keyboard shortcuts and macros for actions (both based on profiles).

Weekly report #1 (2014-01-06)

Almost one week passed since Phoronix published first news about my project (thanks again :-)).

I cannot guarantee that such reports will be made each week (as they require a bit work to be done too and there may be not enough interesting stuff to be covered) and they will be most probably moved to Sunday anyway.

Reactions were usually positive (I’ve read many of comments, written in various languages – Google, you seriously had to improve translating from Hungarian!), thanks for all good words and constructive criticism. πŸ™‚

Lets proceed then, with some numbers:

  • 21 commits since alpha 1 (plus 3 “fake”, created by github merges),
  • 5 pull requests (3 merged),
  • 37 issues created (relax, it includes wishes and tasks too),
  • 20 issues still open (including 3 bugs),
  • 2 179 downloads of experimental packages according to sf.net statistics,
  • 102 stargazers, 37 followers and 14 forks on github,
  • over 13 600 unique visits on homepage (over 20% coming phoronix.com).

In terms of coding this week was “weak”, I’ve barely had time to code myself (but still I’ve managed to enforce “at least one commit per day” policy ;-)), since project management eats most of the time.

Hopefully it will improve soon. Some nice features are currently being worked on, those who follow IRC know what exactly is being cooked right now. πŸ™‚

Those who would like to get involved are welcome to check out issues page, items marked as “junior jobs” can be taken (but please ask first on IRC, they may not be always properly marked as taken) and there are also “discussion” tickets, where feedback is especially welcomed.

In case of programming task please take a look at CONTRIBUTING.md file first, it contains some rules that will be mercilessly enforced (well, in worst case I can do code reformatting myself, I know, some of these rules seems to be “weird” ;-)).

Last but not least, I would like to clear some misconception about source of inspiration, it is not Maxthon (which itself is inspired by Opera, but remains closed source), I’ve only meant that I’ve used it a bit in 2004, when it was still called MyIE2 (I couldn’t stand simplistic UI of vanilla IE), before going for Opera.

Alpha 1 release (2014-01-01)

So time has come and there we have first (very) experimental binary packages which can be obtained from sf.net downloads page, source packages can be fetched from github.

Keep in mind that this is very early version and there are lots of things still to be done (especially more UI customization features), all things listed in TODO are not yet available but will be added one after another, also including minor or obvious stuff not listed there.

Please not to judge project until first beta (hopefully in early March), this is first public release done after only 400 commits (two months of work).

This page will see more improvements later, for now it’s best to stick with Atom feed channel on github, for now it makes more sense to focus on browser itself.

Thanks for early feedback (including some criticism, yeah, I’ve read most of these comments scattered around internet :-P) and support. πŸ™‚
