New Arachne fixes numerous bugs and it is
also once again slightly faster, more
stable and includes some new features.
Arachne 1.69 finaly fixes some of "evergreen" bugs, like
totaly unpredictable memory leaks caused by limitations of
16bit DOS memory management. HTML renderer was finaly
rewritten to use only Arachne's own memory management instead of storing some page components to conventional memory, so these memory leaks should be history now.
Other bugs were fixed in Insight mail manager, which should
always choose valid DOS filenames for e-mail attachments. Full support for CC: and Bcc: fields was finaly implemented,
which means that Insight is slightly evoling from simple,
lightweight e-mail client into powerful
Arachne 1.69 features also new HTML layout enhancements:
eg. <TABLE BACKGROUND...> attribute is supported by
both Netscape and MSIE, but it is still ignored for example
by Opera 4.x.
