|NXZILLA (formerly nanozilla) is a set of libraries that allow Mozilla to be used with a NanoX server. |
The NxZilla project has been adopted by the maintainers; It was originaly a developed while we were employed by TUXIA GmbH.
|In This Release|
|This is the fourth release of the NanoX libraries for Mozilla, and is primarily a development release. While you can compile it with Mozilla 1.0rc2, the actual functionality still leaves much to be desired. If you plan on using this as it currently stands to actually do anything with, your crazy.|
|Known Bugs and Issues|
Plugins: The plugin manager has not been ported to NanoX. Therefore
nxzilla does not currently support plugins.|
Legacy plugins: Legacy plugins will NEVER be supported as they are written in either Motif or Xt.
Fonts: Font handling has gone down the gurgler since our last release. No fonts or font styles other than the default are currently supported
Leaks: There are major region leaks in the gfx code. We suspect this to stem from nsImage's handling of composite images.
Embedding: The embedded interface has not been started. Therefore there is still no way to embed gecko into an FLTK application.
|There is still lots to do (see above), so grab the source tarball and the Mozilla source and start hacking.|
