v0.9 (August 24, 2005)

  • Green, red and grey (along with the good 'ol blue) UI color selections.
  • Now collapses horizontally as well as vertically.
  • Individual widget instances remember their respective language settings, sizes and colors upon restart, and clean up the preference file when they're closed.
  • When you scroll down in an article, then open a new article or go back in the history, the widget will remember where you were scrolled to, so if you return to the article it'll be where you left off.
  • Localization compatible.
  • French localization by Floréal Molina (and modified by Arnaud Boudou).
  • The 'cancel loading' behavior (click the progress indicator) has been fixed, I think. It was pretty flakey when you were 'back' in the history a couple articles, clicked a link, then cancelled the loading. A hover graphic has been added.
  • A couple scrolling-related bugfixes. Before, if you opened an article too short to fill the entire widget, and pressed the up/down arrows, or scrolled with the mousewheel, the content would jump from the top to the bottom of the viewing area. Also, if you scrolled to the bottom of a large article, then opened a small article, sometimes the small article would be displayed 'offscreen' until scrolling up.
  • The stretch animation has been smoothed out.
  • Other small bugfixes.
