Dillo web browser
Dillo-3.0 is the first release of the newest branch, which is
based on the already released fltk-1.3 toolkit. This is big news
because it clears the way for Dillo to return to those
distributions which had excluded Dillo2 due to FLTK2 never
being officially released.
The development effort shifted to the dillo-3.x branch long ago,
and it became the active one; dillo-2.x received less and less
attention, and dillo-2.2.1 became the last of its series.
The core team will focus on implementing the CSS feature of
floating elements. This will greatly improve dillo's web page
rendering since many sites have adopted floats instead of tables.
The new dillo3 has shown excellent stability.
The core team welcomes developers willing to join our workforce.
NOTE: With FLTK-1.3, when running on X with Xft enabled (the
default), font naming is more restricted than it was with FLTK2.
If your font_* preferences are no longer working well, please try
the fc-list command as given in dillorc.
Here's a list of some old well-known problems of dillo:
* no FRAMES rendering
* no https (there's a barebones prototype).
You can get FLTK-1.3 here:
Building dillo from sources
1.- Install fltk:
tar zxvf fltk-1.3.0-source.tar.gz
sudo make install
(don't configure fltk with --enable-cairo)
2.- Then dillo3:
tar jxvf dillo-3.0.1.tar.bz2
sudo make install-strip
These are installed by "make install". If you don't have root
access, copy "dillo" and "dpid" to some directory in your path
and install the dpis by running "./install-dpi-local" from the
top directory (they will be installed under ~/.dillo).
Dillo compiles on *BSD systems; please report on this anyway,
and note that you'll need GNU make.
If your dillo crashes or locks at times, just use:
so dillo uses a single thread for name resolving.
Dillo may compile and run OK on Solaris but (please report):
* use gmake (a symbolic link make -> gmake works OK)
Solaris is very inconsistent so you may need to add/remove:
at link time.
