rekonq 0.8 stable!


Here we are, finally! After a long, hard and busy bugfixing period, we finally fixed all the stopper bugs for the first 0.8 stable release. If you live under the rocks and you really don’t know yet what rekonq is, just click here and here or here and… to take a look about by yourself!
We can proudly say that rekonq 0.8 when used against the new shining QtWebKit 2.2.0 is an HUGE improvement compared to the previous release.
As said in the first blog of the 0.8 release series, it comes with these new features:

  • AdBlock: Third Party rules support
  • custom urlbar context menu (paste & go action, …)
  • set editable
  • restore tab’s history
  • UI changes (in rekonq menu)
  • quit closes app (and added option to close window by closing last tab)
  • use KParts to view page source
  • “click” mechanism to manage favorites
  • “Do Not Track” feature
  • history, time first visit added
  • Tab messages using KMessageWidget
  • improved drag’n’drop
  • vi style navigation (optional)
  • ctrl + number favorites shortcuts
  • SSL UIs rewamped

About this last feature, I’d like to give some clarifications about the security advisory reported here.
While rekonq was affected (as every KDE app using KSSL) from CVE-2011-3365 (KSSL), fixed now in the KDE SC 4.7.x branch, CVE-2011-3366 (rekonq) is about code coming from our new SSL UI, that has been (obviously) fixed BEFORE 0.8 release (and so it has never been really released: neither 0.7 nor 0.8 are affected).

Last note: never as in this release, people reporting bugs, giving us feedback and comments has been important. So, an huge THANKS to all you, people. This is YOUR release!

So, what are you waiting here yet? Download, compile, package, share, install, use, browse, have fun!! And if you like this release, you’ll be astonished from the incredible new features we are preparing for the next rekonq!
Stay tuned.

  4. Hello! Congrats for the new version! I’m using Rekonq 0.8.50 right now, and I just wanted to say that rekonq closes because he want, and It doesn’t appear the Report Bug Dialog so decided to say this in your blog.

    If a Bug report dialog appears I will send it (obviously) because I love Rekonq I want to use it as my default web browser.

    Sorry for my bad english, it’s not my native language x)

    • Hi Thunder. Just to let you note that if Report Bug Dialog is not appearing this probably means the crashy code is not rekonq or KDE related at all.
      I noticed it happening sometimes in my wife’s netbook browsers (all them!! Firefox, Chromium, rekonq…).
      Nothing we can do about, sorry.

  7. this version of rekonq is realy better than old version 0.7! but i found a little problems in rekonq!

    1- Tabs are ugly! i recomend change tab layout looklike chromium or ie9.
    2- when i visited a site consist 2 or 3 flash content, rekonq crashed. and when select manual load plugins resolved this problem and crashs.
    3- i waing for rekonq support chromium extentions or native plugins.

    thanks, good job. and sorry for my poor english :)

  8. It’s nice to see new features in rekonq, but i severely like the capability of konqueror to be hybrid file/internet browser/viewer. No plans on merging in any way there, huh?

  9. Hi,

    I have rekonq 0.8, it crahes a couple of times. After it crashes a Bug Report dialog appears. Apparently it is a segmentation fault. Any fix?

    • Difficult to fix something if you didn’t report it. did you?

      • no i haven’t yet. i’ll submit the report, once it occurs again. Thanks ;)

        • i found some info on the from the backtrace:
          i hope it helps.

  10. Hello.
    Is possible to configure Rekonq to use Tor?
    A shortcut button to change Tor to direct connection would be great (like torbutton in firefox).
    Thanks.
