I have been using Links2.16 since it was available, months ago.
Use it all the time. Writing with it now. :)

And yes, it does need LINKS.CRT

I also found a bug in the program, probably a very old one: The Turkish 'dotless i' character's normal and bold forms are a little bit mixed up, especially in the monospace typeface. It's not a huge problam, but could be fixed in the next version.

=== RELEASE 2.17 ===

Fri Sep 7 00:04:41 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Fix verifying SSL certificates for numeric IPv6 addresses

Thu Sep 6 22:07:03 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Delete the option -ftp.fast - it doesn't always work and ftp performance
is not an issue anymore

Passive ftp enabled by default because it will more likely work than
the port command

Wed Sep 5 22:39:11 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Add bold and monospaced Turkish letter 'i' without a dot

Wed Sep 5 01:28:31 cet 2018 mikulas:

On OS/2 allocate OpenSSL memory from the lower heap
It fixes SSL on systems with old 16-bit TCP/IP stack

Fri Aug 31 18:06:26 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Fix IPv6 on OpenVMS Alpha

Thu Jul 26 07:34:24 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Support mouse scroll wheel in textarea

Thu Jul 26 05:24:17 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Delete the option -http-bugs.bug-302-redirect - RFC7231 allows the
"buggy" behavior and defines new codes 307 and 308 that retain the
post data

Wed Jul 18 21:00:23 CEST 2018 mikulas:

X11 - fixed colormap leak when creating a new window

Mon Jul 16 02:33:26 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Fixed an infinite loop that happened in graphics mode if the user
clicked on OK in "Miscellaneous options" dialog and more than one
windows were open.
This bug was introduced in Links 2.15.

Sun Jul 15 21:36:04 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Support 6x6x6 RGB palette in 256-bit color mode on framebuffer
The palette may be switched in the "video options" menu
The 8x8x4 palette has better image quality
The 6x6x6 palette preserves gray

Sat Jul 14 04:49:45 cet 2018 mikulas:

Implement dithering properly on OS/2 in 15-bit and 16-bit color mode

In 8-bit mode, Links may optionally use a private palette - it
improves visual quality of Links images, but degrades visual
quality of other concurrently running programs.

Thu Jul 12 23:06:48 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Improve scrolling smoothness when the user drags the whole document

Thu Jul 12 06:48:00 cet 2018 mikulas:

On OS/2, allocate large memory blocks directly (not with malloc)
- it reduces memory waste

Thu Jul 12 00:56:57 cet 2018 mikulas:

Fixed a bug that setting terminal title and resizing a terminal didn't
work on OS/2 and Windows. The bug was introduced in Links 2.16 when
shutting up coverity warnings.

Sun Jun 17 15:31:28 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Set link color to yellow by default

Sun Jun 17 14:04:07 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Delete the option -http-bugs.bug-post-no-keepalive
It was needed in 1999 to avoid some bug in some http server and it is
not needed anymore

Tue Jun 5 20:24:42 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Trust Content-Length on HTTP/1.0 redirect requests

This fixes hangs with misbehaving servers that honor Connection:
keep-alive but send out HTTP/1.0 reply without Connection: keep-alive.
Links thought that they don't support keep-alive and waited for the
connection to close (for example http://www.raspberrypi.org/)

Tue May 22 00:51:35 CEST 2018 mikulas:

Use keys 'H' and 'L' to select the top and bottom link on the current
page

Thank you :) 2.17 is a very good version and my main browser now. Also has the same version number as the HX runtime I use (except the '+' symbol) :D

For the Honour of DOS!

I am afraid Mikulas has cancelled the support for js. Once he compiled the 2.15 for DOS with JS enabled, I can send it to you if you give your e-mail address.
