Atlantis 0.1.1


Atlantis 0.1.1


Atlantis is a native Web browser for the GNOME desktop.


2003-06-09 Ali Akcaagac

  • ===== Released 0.1.1 (alpha) =====
  • src/atlantis-bonoboui.c (atlantis_combo_entry_activate_callback): when entering an url in the locationbar it used to resolve it together with the url which was previously choosen in the buffer (from bookmarks, or clicks) this caused to show a concatenated effekt, we now make sure this doesn't happen anymore.
  • src/atlantis.c (skip_protocols): replace all strncmp() calls with case insensive calls from glib g_ascii_strncasecmp(). we need case insensive checks because protocols can be written in different cases in html pages and lead into crashing the browser if not found properly.
  • README: updated the readme file again and added copyright notice. Also enchanced the features section.

2003-06-08 Ali Akcaagac

  • README: updated the readme file.
  • data/atlantis-logo.png: file re-created with a better butterfly.
  • data/atlantis.png: file re-vreated with a better butterfly.
  • data/atlantis.xcf: the gimp xcf file of the raw butterfly image.
  • data/atlantis.html: values adjusted for the new atlantis-logo.png file, which has slightly changed.
  • src/atlantis-gtkhtml.c (atlantis_submit_idle_add): this function got added to process submits correctly otherwise the gtkhtml engine segfaults.
  • src/atlantis-gtkhtml.c (atlantis_submit_callback): function got changed to add an idle instead calling the submit directly. used to cause crashes in previous atlantis versions.

2003-06-07 Ali Akcaagac

  • configure.in: updated pkg_config versions for checked libraries.
  • data/atlantis.xml: fixed labeling of toolbar elements which previously showed the accelerator underscore. this shouldn't be like that so it got fixed.
  • data/atlantis.html: used tidy to check and style the html intro page.
  • src/atlantis.c: removed version output to the console.
  • data/atlantis.xml: file changed to atlantis.xml.in/ and passed through intltool.
  • data/atlantis.applications: file got added so atlantis will get registered to the mime system.
  • data/Makefile.am: uncomment entry for atlantis.application, added intltool macro for *.xml.in files, updated filelist for make dist and separated the ui xml file to it's own section.

2003-05-10 Ali Akcaagac

  • src/atlantis.h: replaced the (C) sign with xc2xa9.
  • src/atlantis-interface.c (atlantis_initialize_gtk_hpaned): changed the panesize to 225 pixels in the initial function.
  • src/atlantis.c (main): removed extra functioncall to set the panesize to 225 pixels because we do it in the initial function now.
  • configure.in: bumped atlantis version to 0.1.1 (alpha).
  • src/atlantis.c (load_bookmarks): search for bookmarks in ~/.atlantis directory now and fall back to supplied bookmarks file if none is found there.
  • src/atlantis.c (recursive_parser): remove gtk_events_pending and gtk_main_iteration_do. we don't need to check for pending events because the parser is fast enough to parse stuff before any gui action takes place.
  • src/atlantis.c (bookmark_parser): remove gtk_events_pending and gtk_main_iteration_do. we don't need to check for pending events because the parser is fast enough to parse stuff before any gui action takes place.
