link 2.15 with JS for dos it's out (Announce)

After many request a new version of links with js enabled it's out

I uploaded a version of Links for DOS with javascr*** here:

(from Mikulas's mail)

http://www.jikos.cz/~mikulas/links/links-2.15-js.exe

BUT:
* there are unfixed bugs in the javascr*** engine, so it is not secure
(though, no one would probably bother writing exploits for it)
* the javascr*** engine was written in the era of Netscape 3 and 4 and
it supports features of those browsers. It doesn't run javascr*** on the
current internet

Regular binaries are available from: http://links.twibright.com/download/binaries/

I dunno the difference between links-2.15-lite.exe and links-2.15.exe. Maybe "lite" means text-mode only.

I haven't tried the latest version yet. But, in older versions, yes, "lite" was text only (and also no HTTPS/SSL).

Where are the sources? Are they the same as vanilla 2.15? Binaries and sources (for exact same version) must both be available (GPLv2+).

i suppose it's a special version of 2.15 created by author under request.

The source it's not provided, only the binaries (from personal site of authors, not from project site..)

Probably meant only provisionally as a test version. But what to test it on? One sore point of contention has been Google Groups, which has required Javascript since a few years. Maybe we should test there? (But I'll have to do it later.)
