iCab 3.0.3 Beta 460

Yesterday another iCab beta version was released in which Alexander fixed a JavaScript security issue:

  • Fixed a security problem: For JavaScript event handlers the "Same-Origin-Policy" did not always work correctly, so "foreign" web pages could be able to intercept event handlers from other web pages.
  • In certain very rare circumstances it could happen that iCab could no longer load any images until it was restarted. This happend if images display ways disabled and a web page defined an "onerror" handler (JavaScript) for an ordinary <img> tag which would just assign another image URL to the tag when the loading of the image failed.

iCab 3.0.3 Beta 459

Again, a small iCab update with some bug fixes was released today:

  • When printing certain HTML structures iCab could crash on Intel Macs because of a "division by zero" error.
  • Setting the FavIcon could crash under certain circumstances.

All these small fixes look like some finishing work. Maybe a new public version is being readied for release?

Today Alexander released a small iCab update (available for registered users only):

  • The number of loops in GIF animations was not correctly handled.
  • In the Filter manager the radio buttons in the network panel didn't work in a few language versions of iCab.
  • Invalid GIF animations could cause crashes.
