Syllable, AtheOS The Syllable project has reached another long-time milestone. It was always planned to factor out the web rendering engine of its web browser, ABrowse, into a library with a native Syllable View widget on top, so it can be embedded into more applications than just a web browser. Kristian Van Der Vliet did just that: building on Arno Klenke's WebCore port, he updated that and then stepped up the modularisation by creating the WebView class. He rewrote the browser on top of that and named it Webster [screenshot]. The first alpha version is available in the project's applications downloads. The latest Syllable 0.6.6 development build is required to run it, as several bugs in the system were fixed for the new browser. The next development build will have Webster included. The source code is available on the development site.

The next step?

Perhaps the next step should be the integration of gnash into webster. Does that mean, that a "SDL View" is required? As far as I know, it is only possible to create an "SDL Window".

There are a lot of steps in between, not least of which is writing the Syllable platform support for plugins in WebCore. You also can't have an SDL view running inside a "real" Syllable application, so we'll have to port Gnash to Syllable as a native port before we can create a plugin for Webster.
