Description Milan Kerslager 2003-02-01 10:11:18 UTC
Second public beta has an old version of elinks (elinks-0.3.2-4.i386.rpm). Use
latest stable release please:


Change the URL in SPEC file header to point to proper page too. See:

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-02-01 11:51:02 UTC
To fix what bug, specifically?

Comment 2 Milan Kerslager 2003-02-01 15:07:56 UTC
Latest stable release has UTF-8 support and I'm able to work with Bugzilla too.
Old version has a bug somewhere in cookies code as Bugzilla is not the only Web
I can not work with (try to login and then select My Bugs for example). New
version seems to be better in other ways too (colors in X environment for example).

Do you need more reasons?

Here is modified RPM, SRPM and SPEC file:


You can find my packages here too (daily mirror):

Comment 3 Milan Kerslager 2003-02-01 16:10:57 UTC
