New Iron-Version: 61.0.3200.0 Stable for Linux

Postby SRWare » Tue Oct 03, 2017 2:38 pm

We released the new Iron for Linux 61 today, which contains all features and updates known from Chromium 61. The current version is 61.3200.0.

Main improvements:
- Native support for JavaScript modules
- Bug-/Securityfixes

On Debian and distributions which use an older Kernel the following commands may be necessary (the .deb packages already do it automatically):

Code: Select all

cd [insert Iron directory here]
sudo chown root chrome-sandbox
sudo chmod 4755 chrome-sandbox
sudo chmod 4755 chrome-wrapper
./chrome-wrapper (for the start of Iron)


On Kubuntu, Lubuntu and other Non-GNOME-Distributions, please run once:

Code: Select all

apt-get install libgconf-2-4


To enable Netflix oder Amazon Video you have copy libwidevinecdm.so from an original Google Chrome installation to the Iron folder.
Alternative: Get it from the Slackware-Respos: http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbu ... ne-plugin/

How to get Flash working:

You can launch the "Config and Backup Tool" via ./IronConfigBackup or via the Shell as "SRWare Iron Config and Backup Tool" under Networks

WebRTC can be disabled by our extension: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=11893
Our official updater is available here: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=11751

Hello

Everything looks good except for the font hinting
It doesn't work on small font size, for example 10 or 8

Please see attached screenshot

Please add a sub category "WebBrowser" to iron.desktop

Hi there!

I have one suggestion for Iron:
to meet the recommendations from FreeDesktop the iron.desktop file should be added by the following item:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Name=SRWare Iron
Comment=SRWare Iron-Browser
Exec=/usr/share/iron/chrome-wrapper
Icon=iron_product_logo
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Categories=Network;
StartupNotify=false
MimeType=text/html;text/xml;application/xhtml_xml;image/webp;x-scheme-handler/http;x-scheme-handler/https;x-scheme-handler/ftp;


There should be added in Categories this: WebBrowser.

So iron.desktop looks like:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
(...)
Categories=Network;WebBrowser;
(...)


For more information please see see: Additional Categories from Desktop Menu Specification.
