This is a list of things that still need to be fixed before NetSurf 2.9 can be released.


Potential crashers

  • ?

Memory usage

  • ?


  • GTK: Changing between tabs does not update the favicon to match the current tab's page. r13460
  • Framebuffer: Linux surface support.
  • Have any install targets broken? Missing resources? Trying to copy things that have gone?
  • Debian/Ubuntu packages

WONTFIX in 2.9

  • 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'



  • Branch some time in Jan 2012
