Issue with Ubuntu PPA fixed

Recent issue with installing "qupzilla" package from PPA has been fixed now.
  E: Package 'qupzilla' has no installation candidate
You can now install "qupzilla" and also "qupzilla-next" packages from PPA without any problems.

I am very sorry for any inconvenience.

And, as this is probably going to be my last post before 24th,

  Merry Christmas :)

Development builds available

I have recently created new package in QupZilla PPA "qupzilla-next".
This package is going to be updated quickly and will contain current development build of QupZilla.

If you want to help reporting bugs or you just want to use latest version, install it by following commands:

Add PPA to system:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nowrep/qupzilla
sudo apt-get update
Install package:
sudo apt-get install qupzilla-next

This package conflicts with stable "qupzilla", so it's not possible to have installed both of them.

Also please note, that this is development build, so it may (although I am trying to commit only tested changes) contain bigger or lesser bugs.

QupZilla 1.1.0 released

I am happy to announce release of new version, 1.1.0!

This month, December 2011, is connected with QupZilla not only by this release, but it is exactly one year since I started working on it.
And really a lot of work has been made since the very first release (if you saw it, you would agree with me).

  • option to turn on XSS Auditing
  • option to select all text in locationbar when clicking on it
  • added Speed Dial
  • possibility to select + copy text on a lot of labels
  • improved source code viewer performance + highlighting
  • importing bookmarks from html files
  • restoring closed tabs now remember position
  • multiple sizes icon in linux
  • ppa for ubuntu
  • fixed: saving certificate exception
  • fixed: overriding cursor by some flash objects
  • fixed: problem with loading urls with % characters from history
  • fixed: favicon of qupzilla internal pages in ubuntu
  • fixed: loading of user defined stylesheet
  • fixed: saving of user defined fonts
  • and other ...

The main feature in this release is of course Speed Dial.

I'd like to thank to all, who reported bugs and also to all translators.
Above that, I must specifically thank to Jonathan Hooverman and Jorge Sevilla for a lot of testing and tips to improve design, usability, etc...

I'd be happy if you take this release as a little christmas gift from me :-)

Download here:

Ubuntu users:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nowrep/qupzilla
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qupzilla

QupZilla gets PPA!

It is now possible for Ubuntu (and derivates) users to install QupZilla from its PPA.
The main advantage of this, as most of you know, that you will get updates with the rest of system automatically.

PPA is currently containing development snapshot of QupZilla, but don't worry to install it, there is a lot of new stuff totally worth it :-)
After next release (1.1.0), I will make 2 separate packages, qupzilla (stable) and qupzilla-next (development snapshots).

You can add PPA and install QupZilla with these commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nowrep/qupzilla
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qupzilla

Speed Dial appears in Git!

Hello, few days ago I was writing about initial speed dial mockup. I'm happy to announce that it is ready now :-)

Almost all has been implemented on html page side in Javascript and jQuery. jQuery offers very nice effects with just few lines of code. This was my first touch with jQuery library at all, so please don't judge me :-D
Page loading is very fast thanks to caching page thumbnails in profile directory. Actually, on my machine (64bit Debian on ThinkPad R61 with Core2Duo T8100 2,1 Ghz) page loads in 200ms and on very slow Toshiba netbook (32bit Windows 7 on old single core Atom) it loads in 2s.
Loading time on netbook is not ideal, though, but everything is very sluggish on Windows there, so that might have some influence on it too.

Changing of page background and keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl + 1, 2, ...) are not implemented yet.
While page background won't be problem, keyboard shortcuts will be quite tough. The main problem is laptop keyboards with lack of numerical block. In this case, clicking Ctrl + 1 emits Ctrl + + signal (and this keyboard is already registered to Zoom In). But I hope I'll manage to do it somehow.

You probably want to see some demonstration of how it works, so here you go:
