Cool new stuff. First release. And a nice community contribution...2009-07-03
Hi. I intend to make the lives of downstream packagers a little easier so I will call my master tags "releases" and provide links to tarballs. Expect a new release every few weeks or so.
So here is the first uzbl alpha release, version 2009.07.03
This version brings:
- A JS object to execute commands (be sure to read the security implications in the readme)
- bidirectional socket (responses come back through the socket now)
- reading config from stdin is optional now (so you can background uzbl)
- Makefile compat fix, typos, cookies.py XDG paths bugfix and more small stuff
For people with crappy window managers or on platforms over which they have very little control (*cough* you know who you are), lazy ones or just those who haven't seen the light yet, there is more good news:
Some people in the community have taken it on them to improve uzbl_tabbed.py... a lot! (uzbl_tabbed.py was the proof of concept script introduced 2 weeks ago to demonstrate the Xembed functionality) While it is quite new, I must say it is starting to look quite nice (and configurable).
It's not for everyone, but I think some people will really like it. You'll find this updated version in the example scripts directory.

PS: There are still plenty of patches in my todo list. Give me some more time :)
