Hi All,

I'm happy to make available the first BETA version of Odyssey 1.25. This is a result of a year of work, much of it spent on porting Odyssey to work directly on WebKit and updating engine to latest version.

Requirement to use this version of Odyssey it to ran Icaros 2.03 or compatible system.

Before using Odyssey 1.25 you need to update some of your system components. The archive containing them is available here:

http://download.aros3d.org/software/AROS-components-20150917.zip

Odyssey 1.25 can be downloaded from here:

http://download.aros3d.org/software/owb-aros-1.25-20160326.zip

Do not copy the Odyssey 1.25 on top of your Odyssey 1.23 installation. Treat it as separate application!

Changes:

31.08.2015: Odyssey Web Browser 1.25 BETA 1

17.09.2015: Update to AROS-components
- opening or closing a tab does not cause flicker anymore
- switching between tabs does not cause flicker anymore
- tabs area enlarged so that button or icon are not damaged by rounded edges
- opening a new tab via middle button (link click) makes this tab inactive by default

26.09.2015: Instruction on how to configure sound so that Odyssye does not block other applications:

Copy AROS:Storage/AHI/device.audion to AROS:Devs/AHI
Copy AROS:Storage/AudioModes/DEVICE to AROS:Devs/AudioModes
Restart AROS
Go to AROS:Prefs/AHI
For "Music Unit" select a new entry called "Unit 0: 16 bit stereo++"
For "Unit 0" keep your correct audio driver selected as it was before
Save

Odyssey (and other applications that use AHI low level access) will no longer block audio.

Thanks for this.

I have installed it on Icaros Desktop 2.0.3 running on a Core i7 PC.

Everytime I type into the URL field in this new beta it prompts "Please insert volume "2" in any drive" with retry or cancel. If I cancel I get red coloured strange text below the web site titles in the url history.

(Yes I installed the patch files first, and the OWB is in it's own separate folder to the beta version)

Any ideas?

I am still trying stuff out but thought I would provide this feedback as the issue is quite annoying.

This post is from Icaros running the new OWB beta so this site works well!

Catcha,
Epsilon

Thanks to this new?
I ran Odyssey 1.25 per flight on my small Aspire One ZG5 from an external HD and had no problem in typing links, tried Youtube, a bit 'slow but that's okay.

I haven't tried it on the Acer ZG5 yet - I probably should! I am working on a Icaros Desktop 2.0.3 build on my Core i7 PC at the moment so I tried that first.

The issue I reported is still occurring.

I will try on the Acer ZG5 later on and see how I get on - I expect it will work as you mentioned above.

Catcha,
Epsilon

This is really great news! The browsing experience is very much improved!
I was able to just watch a video on YT and then another one embedded in a Facebook page. FB itself also seems to work much better, which is probably a bad thing :).
Congrats and thanks for your hard work. Would you like us to report any crashes / bugs here or just be quiet and grateful?

@Epsilon

Please install the patch files again or check sizes of your system files and the patch files. If this does not work, try deleting EnvArc/Env:Zune/OWB.x.prefs/cfg.config.
