#1981 closed task (wontfix)


Reported by: a.hatzim@… Owned by: Richard A Downing
Priority: normal Milestone: 6.3
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


Version increment to 0.8.6

The author claims that is the last gtk1 based release (the next release will be based in the fltk toolkit).

Even in this release there is a dependency to fltk2 to build a fltk gui for downloads. This can be disabled with --disable-dlgui.

If however someone needs this option a fltk2 snapsot required (fltk-2.0.x-r5111 is fine),along with a sed to configure (icorrectly is looking for fltk-config).

sed -i 's/fltk-config/fltk2-config/' configure

No support for UTF-8 since gtk1 doesn't support it.

However and just for the record (obviously a wiki stuff) there is an unofficial patch that enables display of pages with Japanese,Chinese, Korean, French,Greek and other character sets. Additionaly there is support for tabs among some other features. For more information about the patch in the next link.

This ticket depends in #2226. If the decision in that ticket is to include Dillo in the release, and if there is no one that can accept this ticket, then I will do the update. I will leave it unassigned for the moment, hoping that someone has gtk1 installed.

See #2226. Dillo removed from the book, by commenting out. May be re-added when, and if, the fltk2 version becomes stable.
