[EDIT] With Release candidate 1 available for download we feel that the requirements of the bounty has been met. As of yesterday (23.07.12) money has been transferred to the Friedens for their great work on this project. We hope to see many more improvements and updates over time[/EDIT]
Donations can still be made directly to the Frieden brothers: http://www.friedenhq.org/ Click the Paypal Donate button. :-)
Timberwolf is the project name of the AmigaOS port of the Firefox web browser (for legal reasons it cannot be called Firefox). Firefox is an award-winning open source web browser and is the de-facto-standard browser across a wide variety of operating system, taking second place in popularity after Microsoft' s Internet Explorer. Its features include tabbed browsing, support for HTML 5, ECMAScript 3.1, and CSS 3, extensibility through addons, and a lot more. In short, Firefox is the most complete open source browser to date.
|Bounty:||6732.72 EUR  Out of 7063.69 EUR originally submitted.|
|Title:||Timberwolf Alpha 1 released|
|Text:||We have to apologize for the long absence. Workload, personal issues and other things slowed down development considerably.
However, we're finally able to make the first binary release of Timberwolf. This is going to be an Alpha version, meaning it will be prone to crashing and misbehavior, it will be slow, and not all functionality is implemented yet.
Future plans include an update to the latest baseline source code of Firefox (3.7 beta), an Amiga-specific theme, as well as a major rewrite of the rendering code. The current version of the rendering code (Did we mention it's an alpha release ?) has some conceptual problems that will lead to misrenderings, and massive overdraw (some webpages might be rendered 2 to 8 times, you may notice the window will turn black several times during page buildup).
Feedback is welcome; please point your browsers at http://amigans.net and visit the Timberwolf support forum.
Have fun with the first release.
