Tabs on Top and Windows test build

Development is moving towards next release, 1.4.0.

Tabs on Top
The latest thing added worth noting is option to move tabs on top. It has been requested in issue tracker (#640) and is now fully implemented.
This feature is, of course, only optional, so that means you don't have to use it if you don't like it. Tabs on top are also not enabled default.

Windows test build
I have finally succeeded in building QtWebKit 2.3 for Windows. Next version will then be shipped with the latest version of QtWebKit.

Current build (February 18 27cd8cce64): Download (zip)

Notes to this build:
 - it now actually should run even on Windows 2000
 - updated OpenSSL to 1.0.1e
 - updated QtWebKit with Page Visibility API support
 - only English dictionaries in zip (all languages will come with release)

String freeze
String freeze is planned by the end of this week and new version will be released by the end of the February.
Update: String freeze February 19

Translations moved to Transifex

I'd like to announce that translations of QupZilla has moved to Transifex service.
From now on, all work on translations will happen there. From time to time (and also before releasing new versions), translations will be pulled to git repository.

QupZilla project:

I beleive that managing translations on Transifex is easier for all of us. A lot of translators already have account there and are familiar with the service.
I also beleive that this move can attract even more new translators.

FTP Support
One thing that is worth pointing out from the current development is support for ftp protocol. Thanks goes to S. Razi Alavizadeh for his excellent work.
You can now browse and download files on ftp servers.
