Cookies issue + Build for Mac OS X available!

Cookies issue in 1.8.x
In 1.8.0 version, new option for Filter 3rd party cookies feature were added and the yes/no checkbox had to be changed to 3-option combobox.
The new options are now Always, Never and Keep existing with meaning Always block third party cookies, Never block third party cookies and Keep cookies from third parties already in cookie jar.
However, the title was not changed from Filter 3rd party cookies to Allow 3rd party cookies. Moreover, Never option was made default.
As a result, with 3rd party cookies being always blocked, some sites stopped working. It includes commenting on blogger (QupZilla blog) or on YouTube videos.

Until the 1.8.3 is released, you can fix this issue by setting the Filter 3rd party cookies to Always.

Mac OS X build
Latest 1.8.2 build is now available for Mac OS X! It can be downloaded from homepage as usual.

Older Windows builds
For some reason, the latest 1.8 version is not working on Windows 2000. I am not really sure why it doesn't, I have used exactly the same libraries as for building 1.6 version.
Some users asked for links for 1.6 Window builds, so here it is:

QupZilla 1.6.6 Windows installer
QupZilla 1.6.6 Portable

    Ok, understood -- that's a shame! Would've been great to be able to use 1.8.x.
    TYVM for the links to 1.6.6, which indeed works AOK on Win 2K
    Anything one (e.g. I) could do to help you understand why it doesn't start as before on Win 2K? Don't know what I could test/debug as a simple user

    1. I don't think there's anything to do, except actually trying to compile it. I'm sorry.

    Don´t forget to pull/push updated file to/from transifex. String from issue #1468 wasn´t pulled before 1.8.2

  4. The only thing that would have made these guys better would have been better communication in the earlier planning stages, but it all worked out great in the end.
