Mac OS X image available and support for PAC proxy

Mac OS X image available
Thanks to Seyyed Razi Alavizadeh, Mac OS X image of 1.4.1 version is now available to download.
You can download it the same way as other versions, from homepage.

Support for Proxy Auto-Config (PAC)
QupZilla now supports loading PAC files for configuring proxy. You need to specify URL for PAC file in Preferences. PAC files can also be stored locally (as seen in screenshot).
All JavaScripts functions from PAC standard are available for scripts, so that means every PAC script should work just fine.
However, please note that there is dnsResolve function that is blocking and may hang the browser for some time (there is no way to prevent it). So if you experience hangs, try disabling PAC proxy.

Option to choose PAC file in Preferences.

Donations
From time to time I am getting a question how to donate money. Since you asked for it, it is now possible to donate money via PayPal from Contribute section at homepage. I'll be very thankful for any amount.
