Whats new in version 2.8.7:
  • change quoting for fixup to help_files.sed in 2.8.8dev.17 to work around bug in cygwin's make/sed programs -TD
  • change quality value for application/xhtml+xml mime type added for Debian #184482, to ensure that it is offered as one of Lynx's internal types on an "Accept:" line sent to the server (Debian #725178) -TD
  • trim unexpected query-parameters from file: URIs when checking for their presentation and compression types. Not all browsers do this, etc. -TD
  • modify forms-submit to trim query-parameters from the action URI if it happens to be a file-URL. IE and some other browsers do this. The RFCs do not mention this since forms are an HTTP feature (Debian #738121) -TD
  • reviewed command-line options which were not provided in lynx.cfg; added others which could be useful for dumps (i.e., force_html, hiddenlinks, listonly, list_inline, localhost, short_url, with_backspaces) -TD:
  • add dont_wrap_pre to lynx.cfg (request by GV) -TD
  • use idn_free() rather than ordinary free (patch by GV)
  • build...
