Dillo is eight years old!
After a very slow 2006, and a project stop in year 2007, the new 2008 came with a renewed work force that kept working steadily behind the scenes. The fruits of this effort are a new and stable dillo based on FLTK2 (aka dillo2), that has more features, bug fixes, goodies and half the memory footprint of the GTK1-based dillo!
This new branch of dillo is scheduled for release in late
September or early October 2008.
The main focus of this release is to show and share dillo with:
Our users will surely enjoy this new release as it will give them the same things they're accustomed plus antialiasing, different character sets, accepting compressed pages, control over image loading, smaller footprint, fewer dependencies, better table rendering, bugfixes, improved GUI, ... In brief, a better dillo.
Distributions including dillo (hint hint DSL!) are strongly encouraged to switch to the new branch. It's better, easier to package (FLTK2 is statically linked), and even more memory efficient.
During all these 8 years of dillo, the project has advanced, progressed and grown in direct relation to its developer and user communities. If you're part of them or want to be, please don't hesitate to help.
