ReSiStance with WebKitGtk inside
I have released ReSiStance 0.3 (in case if you wonder what about v0.2, it is just that I didn’t blog about it, but it was released on Monday). I don’t know how it could happen, but I totally overlooked the presence of WebKitGtk python bindings in the Maemo repos by the time I started to code ReSiStance. I decided to move to WebKit as soon as I noticed my mistake, specially knowing all the cool features of WebKit Gtk port from the Igalia mates hacking on it.
These are the more remarkable changes since v0.2.1:
- HTML rendering is now WebKitGtk’s business. It performs blazingly fast, much more than GTKHtml, you’ll easily notice that.
- Feeds list can be sorted
- Added application settings
- Auto load images
- Default font size
- Portrait/Landscape modes
You can see all of them in action in this screecast:
UPDATE: I had to push v0.3.1 to the repositories because v0.3 had missing package dependencies
