The Web plugin for netscape is working now. :)
I only tested it under gentoo linux with mozilla firefox and there are
1. There can be only one instance of the plugin.
2. It's very slow.
3. No shaders.
4. A random "Xlib: unexpected async reply" error occurs.
#1 will require not only plugin changes but also Ketsji modifications
as there are some global variables being used in the code unless we fork
the plugin instance.
I believe #2 and #3 are related - once I got one fixed the other fix
will come with it.
I don't know about #4 yet. It gotta be some part of the plugin that's
running outside the lock. I believe it can be fixed as soon as we
isolate the problem.
Most probably we'll be able to fix all those bugs forking the plugin
instance. But that will require a major refactoring of the plugin code.
This will be schedule for later work - only after we got the svn branch
Any tips will be rightly appreciated.
I'll submit a patch to the bug tracking ASAP.
