  • Tweaked default fastlink URLs, whilst adding
  • 68k: Fixed drawer icon inheritance setting

  • OS4: Fixed AmiUpdate not updating the Norwegian catalog
  • Updated PNG decoder using libpng 1.6.37
  • Fixed possible reference to freed memory for secure pages when updating the status bar

  • Added handling of marginwidth, marginheight, border and scrolling attributes for <iframe> elements
  • Fixed broken JavaScript in iframes, due to wrong (parent) context being used
  • Skip alternative content for iframes when iframes enabled

  • Fixed case where HTTPS connections did not finish loading due to some servers not responding to an SSL shutdown, when the disk cache was disabled
The developers also explained: "Some development work has also been done on HTML <iframe> support (which Stefan started during IBrowse 2.4 development), but this remains disabled in public releases until it is deemed stable." (cg) (Translation: (dr)

AmigaOS 4: New audio driver for Intel HD Audio
A new AHI driver for AmigaOS 4 supports PCIe cards with sound chips meeting the HD Audio specifications. The archive also includes a simple "mixer" for controlling the volume.

Which cards do work (verified):
  • Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy FX (24bit/192kHz 5.1)
  • Startech PEXSOUND7CH (24bit/192kHz 7.1) -> Available under many different brands
  • Fransande 411944 (24bit/192kHz 7.1) -> Available under many different brands
Cards that should work:
  • Terratec AUREON 7.1 PCIe (will arive shortly for verfication)
  • Basically every combination of HDaudio controllers and HD audio multichannel codecs (eg. CA0113, CM8828, CM8888, CM9882A ALC898 etc)
Older cards that might work (no guarantees):
  • Asus Xonar Phoebus solo (CM8888 in combination with high quality discrete DACs)
  • Powercolor Devil HDX (CM8888 in combination with discrete DACs)
Cards that do not work (yet):
  • Core3d (CA0132) based Sound Blasters (Eg Z, AE-5, AE-7, AE-9 etc). These cards have a DSP (ca0132) instead of an audio codec. Support is planned but don't hold your breath because extensive and undocumented configuration is required.
Cards that will never work:
  • PCIe Asus soundcards that are on sale now. These cards are either AV100 ( rebadged CMI8788), CM8786 or C-media 6632AX (USB chip) based. Neither of these chips comply with the Intel HDaudio standard
  • Sound blaster Audigy RX and all other EMU based or X-FI based sound blasters. (do not comply with the Intel HD audio standard)
  • Non-PCIe soundcards in general like external USB cards
