New QupZilla logo

After a quite long time of silence, I have a news about QupZilla.

New logo
Adrien Vigneron volunteered to create a new logo for QupZilla and already sent me couple of ideas. I believe the current logo is not great enough, so I every help is greatly appreciated.

I'd like to share the drafts with all of you, so you can make comments or even improve it!




These are the drafts I like the most. For other ideas, please see Adrien's blog.

Development status
There haven't been much activity lately. This is mainly due to web engine state in latest Qt release. QtWebKit (which uses QupZilla 1.x) is now deprecated and QtWebEngine is not yet enough API-rich to be used for full featured web browser.
There is also a huge problem with some distributions not packaging QtWebEngine at all.

I hope it will all be fixed in future Qt releases and I will be able to release QupZilla 2.0 soon.
That being said, I am planning to release at least one more 1.8 bugfix version (1.8.7) in next month. I'd like to use the new logo for this release!

QupZilla's extension-wiki is ready

To give QupZilla users an overview about all extensions available for use, an additional wiki has been aroused. You will find detailed information about how to configure and to use the extensions. Many screenshots will visualise options and look & feel.

So, continue reading here: qupzilla-plugins/wiki

This blog post and the wiki was written by Jonathan Hooverman. Thanks a lot for his great work!
