XPViewer Runs Natively on OS/2!!

Tuesday November 10th, 1998

Paulo Dias writes in with great news for OS/2 users! Apparently the OS/2 port is kicking ass and taking names! Paulo writes, "The Warpzilla Team has done it again... The XPViewer is now working natively in OS/2 without the previous XP bug, and with support for 8bit alpha blending. The homepage is a bit outdated (still talking of the older version), nonetheless the new nglayout was uploaded to hobbes (hobbes.nmsu.edu) and IS working rather well. For all non OS/2 users, you can look at this screenshot. Also the author told me that the last time he checked (last week), the OS/2 libraries were the most complete of the pack (yes, even more then win32)...

OS/2 is ruling the ports;)"

Side Note: I'm back from my D.C. trip, and a lot of news will be coming up shortly! Stay tuned!

I tried out the NGlayout OS/2 port and it seemed SO fast at rendering HTML (but slow with the rest of the UI, which is understandable). I went around looking for a Linux version to try as well (figuring that the Linux or Win32 version would be farther along), and then I read that the OS/2 version is the farthest along! Yow! Cool!
