Epiphany 1.8.2 released

Announcements Comments Off

What is it ?

Epiphany is the GNOME web browser, based on the mozilla rendering engine. It aims to be simple and easy to use.

Epiphany 1.8.2 is the second release in the stable series for GNOME 2.12 (1.8.1 contained a showstopper bug so was never formally announced). The most notable change perhaps is that keyword searches from the address bar, disabled by default in 1.8.0, have been enabled again after we had received many requests to do so.

Changes from Epiphany 1.8.0 to 1.8.1

  • Make Mozilla paper sizes work with gnome-print. [bug 163255].
  • Require pygtk 2.8. Fixes [ bug 314557].
  • Manually emit the “profile-change-net-teardown” notification;
    works around bug [ Mozilla bug 292699].

  • Don’t focus the checkbox initially. Fixes [bug 163371].
  • If the search term is empty for a smart bookmark use the normal
    URL instead of the smart url with the %s replaced by “”

  • Don’t use “cat >” as output command, it fails inpredicably.
    If not using gecko 1.9, translate the paper name to the one
    mozilla expects (mozilla bug 307404).

  • Use the tab label’s outer hbox for the size calculation instead
    of the label itself. Fixes size oscillations with the Tab States
    extension.

  • Back out the fix for [bug 158486] by re-enabling keyword: searches. Fixes [bug 314974].
  • Don’t spin unmapped spinners. Slightly decrease the frequency.
    Might help with [bug 315232].

  • Use nsIDOMWindowInternal::Close to close tabs. Delay tabs destruction to an idle handler, to avoid crashes when tabs are closed from signal handlers (blur, mousedown, keydown etc).
    Fixes [ bug 172878], [bug 172879], [bug 172882], [bug 303254], [bug 313425].

  • Schedule a GC in finalize of EphyTab and EphyWindow, to work around [ bug 317242].

Changes from Epiphany 1.8.1 to 1.8.2

  • Fix crash on shutdown when only the bookmarks editor
  • Fix a mem leak
  • Don’t grow the left pane of the bookmarks editor with each opening
