  • Security bug fixed: when links was connected to tor, it would send real

dns requests outside the tor network when the displayed page contains <link rel="dns-prefetch" href="http://host.domain/">.

  • Fix a crash if:
    • External fonts are used
    • Rendering is optimized for LCD
    • The document contains some characters with zero width

file://hostname/usr/bin/ according to RFC 8089

  • Report errors using dialog boxes on OS/2 and Windows because

the standard output may not be visible

  • Fix an error "ERROR: select for write (5) failed: Bad file descriptor"

that could happen if the master process was doing dns lookup while being suspended

  • Fixed a memory leak of the SSL structure
  • Try to open the file "/dev/input/mice" and use it instead of gpm.

(the user must be in the "input" group)

  • This results in smooth mouse movement on the framebuffer.
  • Report "Lynx/Links" user agent when searching on Google so that

Google returns non-css page

  • Support the zstd compression algorithm
  • Haiku support
  • Fix mouse dragging not being reported in xterm
  • Use proper cookie expiry

RELEASE 2.20.1

Fixed an error "ERROR: event_base_loop failed: Bad file descriptor" if the user quits the master instance on OpenBSD.

OpenBSD uses an old libevent-1.4.15 and it doesn't handle calling event_reinit from event handler.

libevent-2.1.11 also doesn't allow calling event_reinit from event handler, so it is fixed as well.
