Just a short blog today to announce the immediate availability of rekonq 0.4.90 (0.5 beta) tarballs. As I’m having troubles today with my sf account (rekonq site and tarballs are on sourceforge), you’ll find code just on gitorious (download source from git there) and on kde-apps (the usual tarballs).
If you live under the rocks and you yet don’t know what rekonq is, just let me say that it is a web browser based on (Qt)WebKit that aims to be lightweight and to be well integrated with KDE technologies.
New features for the upcoming 0.5 release are:
- improved adblock, automagically updating filter lists (+abp scheme support)
- RSS support
- new urlbar (tech preview): it’s just nice and more will come..
- downloads history tracked
- SSL Info support
- Bookmarks & history panels improvements
- bugfixing & users wishes
All rekonq screenshots, as usual, are here.
Another notable thing is that in this development period, rekonq has been accepted in the Extragear Software Collection (has it changed name, accordingly?)
Please, help us to let shine 0.5 stable release, reporting any bug or trouble using it here.
