What's new

[2005-09-15] The Copenhagen hackfest release of 0.10.6

Over the summer quite a few important updates have accumulated. Most importantly the problem with key presses turning up as key prefixes, which a lot of people has reported. Apart from the regular fixes this release also brings many smaller improvements which should hopefully make the life of the ELinks user much better.

[2005-05-03] Monthly update to the stable branch - 0.10.5 released

This monthly update to the stable branch mostly brings you lots of bug fix and minor improvements. There is however also some changes which are a bit more experimental namely support for less aggressive caching. It is not perfect but it seems to do the right thing most of the time. Finally, the documentation is now available as one file in either plain text or HTML version.

[2005-04-06] 0.10.4 is available for download

Trying to keep up with the months going by, here is the fourth update to the stable 0.10. There are still a lot of stuff going on. Besides the usual fixes we had to change the FTP parser due to licensing issues so be sure to report any problems. Also usability of the managers has been much improved from the improved keyboard accelerators for buttons.
