indeed i will release a new beta version today, though you shouldn't expect much excitement unless you are a plugin coder.  but it is significant in the sense that it marks the start of me jump starting farr development.  updates should start coming much more frequenlty after today.

ecaradec has made a new update of the js sdk that let's plugins know when special keys are pressed in memo mode and let's plugins know when Enter has been pressed during search, which is what you've been waiting for in terms of not needing to end lines with && and other such stuff.

Out of curiosity.. Are you going to change the "end" / "home" behaviour of the keys on memo mode for this update, mouser?

The FScript SDK has been updated to support the FARR extensions and is not beta anymore... Hum, at least I removed the beta from the filename :

2.04.02 is now uploaded.

For what's new and download link, see: http://www.donationc...05.msg82198#msg82198

Note: As I said above, current end-users of FARR are not likely to notice much of a difference. I've just finally started going through and fixing bugs, and adding some significant new features for plugin writers.  Updates should be coming much more frequently in the near future, especially as the plugin writers and I figure out new features we need for plugins.

I can't wait to see what plugin writers can come up with using the new html view mode.

To help test the new internal browser mode i added a command to the core-internet aliases called "igo", so to open that page in the html view mode type:
igo www.google.com

Yay! Downloading now! Although, why didn't it download via the update program?

Mouser, we need either a new feature request thread, or for the old one to be unlocked. I keep wanting to suggest things that aren't plugins. heh.

For instance, you added the option to have FARR minimize if it loses focus. I'd also like to see a similiar option to have it return to its hidden state if it loses focus. Nevermind. I'm a dumbass. Didn't notice that this already exists. Though I still vote for a new feature request thread.

Okay I have a suggestion already for the new browser plugin. It would be great if it could detect the size of the website and adjust accordingly, and then return to proper size when you're done browsing. Google works fine, but I navigated to my own website and either had to use the scroll bars, or re-adjust the width of FARR. Then had to adjust back to my preferred size when I was done.

davidma we are thinking alike.
i'll tell you a few thoughts i had:

1) ability for FARR to autodetect needed window size within range.
2) return to normal window size when back in normal mode.
3) if #1 proves impractical, a workaround would be for FARR to remember what size it was last resized to when viewing pages on each domain.  so that basically you would resize it when you went to a new domain, and it would thereafter remember to resize to that size next time that website was visited.

regardless, let's remember FARR is not meant to be a full browser, this new view mode is mainly meant for plugin writers to display custom output.

Oh! Another thought. Now that we have this browser plugin, we need someone to allow things like define, wikipedia etc to open in the FARR browser. Especially when you're just going to be looking for a quick answer rather than wanting to launch your browser.
