AmigaOS4 port of Origyn Web Browser with ARexx port, a simple toolbar
and scroll bars added.
All required shared objects are included in this archive. If you
haven't used OWB 1.13 or newer yet you have to copy the file
OWB/Workbench/Devs/curl-ca-bundle.crt to your DEVS: directory for
https:// to work, but except for that nothing has to be installed.

Change history:
1.21 (18.4.2008)
- Added a workaround for font releated OWB memory leaks in the AmigaOS4
  font implementation.
- Fixed http://crashlog.os4depot.net/cl25 and
- Speed up text rendering.
- No longer uses own pointer mouse pointer.

1.20 (11.4.2008)
- Optimized scrolling, now the moved parts are really scrolled and only
  the new parts updated instead of updating everything.

1.19 (24.3.2008)
- Fixed wrong offsets in frames.
- Now ignores fonts using URLs.
- Protected the up-/download ASL requester from concurrent usage.
- No longer tries to download anything but application/* mime types.
- Added the changes to only render the visible parts and made it
  If the tooltype LOWMEM is set it only renders the currently visible
  part of a page instead of the complete one. That way it needs much
  less memory on large pages, but scrolling is much slower, it's not
  optimized at all (for example it doesn't scroll but rerenders the
  complete visible part instead), and I didn't get everything working
  correctly yet, for example the selection frames around text input are
- Built current version of SDL_gfx as shared object and added
  workarounds for the zoomSurface() crashes on http://qxl.dk/ in it.

1.18 (11.3.2008)
- Fixed wrong scrolling and incomplete updates, for example in
- When downloading OWB now checks if the file already exists and a
  requester is opened to confirm overwriting it or cancel the download.
- The comments of downloaded files are set to the URL.

1.17 (6.3.2008)
- The download progress windows are now opend on the correct screen.
- Fixed wrong download attempts for urls without mime type.
- Fixed too short filename buffer, downloading to FFS partitions works
- Included a new version of libgcc.so required since 1.16.

1.16 (5.3.2008)
- Disabled the alerts on memory corruption and errors like double free()
  in the memory allocator.
- When resizing a page, incl. the updates while loading, it now frees
  the old one before allocating the new one. Should make it usable on
  Amigas with only 128 MB RAM again for a lot of pages.
- Added download and upload support <Andrea PalmatÚ>.
- Changed the memory allocator to support multiple threads for the new
  download threads.
- Added progress windows for the downloads.

1.15 (1.3.2008)
- In 1.14 stdio wasn't disabled for workbench start, fixed.

1.14 (29.2.2008)
- Implemented a new memory allocator for OWB.
  It's slower and needs more memory than the prevous one, 256 MB is
  probably the minium for OWB now (it will never need more for most
  pages since I don't have more RAM in my A1 ;-) but more sites work in
  OWB without crashing now, for example OWB doesn't crash on exit any
  more, usually even killing the rest of the system, after using
- Added scroll bars.
- Rebuild with GCC 4.2.3.

1.13 (23.2.2008)
- Fixed OWB bug 178 (fonts related endless loops) in the AmigaOS4 fonts
- If loading a page failed the progress bar is set to 0 now.
- Added tooltype DISABLEGIFANIMS, if it's set the anims are still played
  once since usually the last image is better than the first.
- Using shared libcurl, libssl, libxml2, libxslt and libz now, you have
  to download sobjs.lha, extract it and and copy them to SOBJS:.
  Not required if you used AmiUpdate to update OWB, the new shared
  objects were installed automatically already.
- The shared libcurl uses DEVS:curl-ca-bundle.crt instead of
  S:curl-ca-bundle.crt (since it's not a script using S: was wrong).
- Mounting RANDOM: is not required any more.
