Apprunner is Operational!

Tuesday January 26th, 1999

Mike Pinkerton of the XPFE group has written us to say that the new browser based around the XPFE and NGLayout has made its first steps towards life. To quote Mike, "AppRunner is up and running with toolbars instantiated from xul and working back/forward/home/stop buttons using the xptoolkit command architecture."

What does this mean? It means that the toolbars are starting to work within the application shell, they are instantiated via XML documents (XUL) and stylesheets, and their background code is created within the extensible cross platform backend they have developed.

I pulled and did an optimized build of Mozilla today (on Win 98). It built apprunner.exe, but when I moved it to dist\win32_o.obj\bin and ran it, it did nothing at all... not even the empty window that it used to. Where does it need to look for the XML components to get it started?
