2011.02.15: Too long between releases!2010-02-15
Wow, it's already been 3 months since the last release? That's too long.
I've been dreading this release, because it breaks backwards compatibility. In short:
- the way downloads are handled has changed
$UZBL_TITLEare available to scripts as environment variables, but not as command-line arguments.
$ENVIRONMENT_VARIABLESare no longer expanded by the config parser
- cookie daemons are no longer supported
The full details are on the wiki, including how to get your browser working again.
The good news is:
- downloads will work on sites that they didn't before
- it's easier to write and understand scripts
- uzbl parses commands faster and more consistently
- uzbl can make requests immediately rather than waiting for a response from an external cookie handler
Besides these changes and various cleanup and bugfixes, we have:
- a per-site-settings script that executes commands from a config file based on the current URL
- powerful cookie whitelisting and blacklisting
- gtk3 support (we build against gtk2 by default, enabling gtk3 requires uncommenting some lines in the Makefile)
accept_languagesvariable, which controls the
- a split statusbar that allows right-aligned content
This release was brought to you by Ben Boeckel, k0ral, David Keijser, Jochen Sprickerhof, and myself. (I'm the one to blame for the compatibility changes.)
