Description Milan Kerslager 2003-02-01 05:11:18 EST
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:

To fix what bug, specifically?
Comment 2 Milan Kerslager 2003-02-01 10:07:56 EST
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):
