New features coming in 1.3.5 version

Holidays are almost over and new version of QupZilla is coming.
So what are those new features you may be looking for?

Directory listing
You can now list any directory on your hard disk directly in browser. Clicking on files will give you option to open or save the selected file.

Showing QupZilla source directory

New approach to session restore after crash
QupZilla may crash because of a QtWebKit issue on some specific site. When trying to restore last session, you will probably get the crash again if you are not fast enough to close the problematic tab.
You can now choose which tabs and windows you want to restore.
Big thanks goes to Franz Fellner.

You can choose what to restore or just start fresh new session

Loading progress inside address bar
Another contribution by Franz Fellner. This popular feature you might like from Safari is now available in QupZilla too. However, if you don't like it, you can of course disable it.

Progress color will always adapt to address bar background

New release will have 1.3.5 version number and string freeze will be announced next week.

Support for RTL languages

There is another update on development!

In recent commits, Seyyed Razi Alavizadeh (srazi), fixed QupZilla GUI for RTL languages. He also fixed some Windows related bugs and translated application into Persian.

Images of how QupZilla looked in RTL mode before and now will be the best for showing it:

Thanks a lot for his work!

From other new things that are in git now, I'd like to mention support for setting per-site User Agent (ISSUE-399) and also option to disable AdBlock on page or server from menu.

All these improvements are going to be in upcoming release 1.3.2.
