This is a list of things that still need to be fixed before NetSurf 2.8 can be released.


Potential crashers

  • Floating point exception on quit when no images have been displayed. Divide by zero in image_cache_fini() - Fixed in revision 12794

Memory usage

  • ?


  • RISC OS: LWC strings remaining on exit - fixed in r12805
  • Amiga: resize frames redraw is broken - fixed in r12802
  • Have any install targets broken? Missing resources? Trying to copy things that have gone?
  • Debian/Ubuntu packages

WONTFIX in 2.8

  • GTK: URL bar and search bar border messed up with Ubuntu 10.04 theme -- Rounded corners are clipped. Probably the lib sexey thing is broken.
  • framebuffer: leaks font stuff (Well, leaks in that it doesn't free them on exit)
  • core: cURL handles are huge, can we reduce our defaults or are we at the minimum limit of acceptability?
  • New warnings since 2.7 in core (gcc version 3.4.6 (RISC OS GCCSDK 3.4.6 Release 2)):
image/png.c: In function `png_cache_convert':
image/png.c:430: warning: variable 'bitmap' might be clobbered by `longjmp' or `vfork'
image/png.c:433: warning: variable 'row_pointers' might be clobbered by `longjmp' or `vfork'
