Preparing for Chemnitz 19 March 2016

Freshly printed Midori stickers just arrived, in November the last ones of the old batch were being given out to visitors of the OpenRheinRuhr. So I ordered new ones at FlyerAlarm, a print company based in Würzburg, Austria. This time around I went for circular ones and slightler smaller than they used to be. This [...]

Heads or tails

As things go we diverged a bit from the original plan of making a big compatibility break with this release. Instead much of the original branch has been broken off into pieces that made their way into trunk. We did however bump WebKit2, libSoup and Zeitgeist dependencies. The most visible change is support for CSD, [...]

A leap of leopards (or: 0.5.10)

Whilst work on the compatibility breaking branch is coming along nicely it seemed sensible to do another bug fix release. Thus Midori 0.5.10. So download Midori v0.5.10 now (1.2 MB) The source tarball is up. Windows is going to follow suit shortly, and others are still being refreshed, so be patient if the option of [...]

Ballet (or: 0.5.9)

Seven months of sweat and tears… oh well, not quite so dramatic. In any event Midori 0.5.9 is out! We’re already scheming… I mean planning for the next cycle. We want to go WebKit2 and GTK+3 only now and do away with the fourfold compatibility setup. Anyone who finds this thrilling is more than welcome [...]

Midori booth at OpenRheinRuhr 2014

At OpenRheinRuhr 2014 we had a Midori booth again. Almost didn’t happen due to the strike of Deutsche Bahn which caused many people to miss the event. Fortunately my humble self made it. In addition to stickers, this time around we even had edible gummi paws! Amongst the most posed questions was process isolation, something [...]

Kitten looking to be adopted

The following unfortunately comes up regularly these days: This Midori looks interesting, maybe I should try it out. Aha, there’s a Debian package for it. sudo apt-get install midori midori (0.4.3+dfsg-0.1) Meh, pretty crashy, I better ask some devs for help. Ah, so 0.5.8 is the latest. So why isn’t this packaged!? The answer is [...]

Experimental Windows Snapshot for 0.5.9

Time for testing. Fresh build with many great fixes from the current trunk as well as updated dependencies. This build should resolve startup issues for users of Windows 8. In case of crashes debug files are shipped in the archive and you are encouraged to provide a backtrace. Known issues Non-working webinspector. Regular View (DOM) [...]

Advertisements and two little kittens

Today is the day of Midori 0.5.8. Dedicated to Adblock and WebKit2. Rather than trying to meet fixed dates as we used to, we selected which goals define if the cycle is done. No more no less. As liked, fast and efficient our Adblock extension was, the original maintainer isn’t around anymore and flaws were [...]

Peas and Beans

The avid user may have noticed the release is overdue, although scheduling a release over new year’s eve was probably a lost bet to begin with, so that’s why. The good news is we got some extra bug fixing time. So what did we get done? A good amount of clean-up including a revamped notebook [...]
