+<dt><a href="/downloads/">NetSurf 3.2 released</a> <span>30 Aug 2014</span></dt>
+<dd>NetSurf 3.2 is primarily a bug-fix release. In addition to fixes, a disc cache feature has been added, and a little work has been done to improve CSS3 support. Several of the front ends have received quite a bit of attention, with new features and improvements; notably the GTK, AmigaOS and Framebuffer front ends. We recommend all users upgrade.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">NetSurf in Google Summer of Code</a> <span>01 May 2014</span></dt>
+<dd>NetSurf is participating as a mentoring organisation in Google Summer of code again this year. We have a student called Rupinder Singh Khokhar who will be working on updating our core web technology libraries, LibDOM and LibHubbub, to bring them into line with the current versions of the specifications.</dd>
+<dt><a href="/downloads/">NetSurf 3.1 released</a> <span>26 Apr 2014</span></dt>
+<dd>NetSurf 3.1 contains many improvements over the previous release. The highlights include much faster CSS selection performance, faster start up time, new look and feel to the treeviews (hotlist/bookmarks, global history and cookie manager), improved options handling, undo/redo support in textareas, and general improvement of forms. Also included are many other additions, optimisations and bug fixes. We recommend that all users upgrade.</dd>
+<dt><a href="/about/awards">NetSurf wins Award</a> <span>23 Jan 2014</span></dt>
+<dd>NetSurf won the award for &quot;best non-commercial product&quot; at the 2012/2013 RISC OS Awards. Thanks to everyone that voted for us!</dd>
+<dt><a href="">NetSurf developer workshop report</a> <span>06 Jan 2014</span></dt>
+<dd>The NetSurf core developers gathered in Cambridge at the start of the year, and managed to do a considerable amount of work across various areas of the project. See the <a href="">developer workshop report</a> for more details. Thanks to <a href="">Collabora</a> for hosting the event.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">New bug report system launched</a> <span>17 Dec 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>We have created a new bug reporting system and transferred most of the existing reports from the old SourceForge powered bug tracker. Let us know if you have any trouble with the new system. The NetSurf project no longer uses SourceForge, and any issues raised there will go unseen.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">LibCSS selection performance boost</a> <span>02 Dec 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>A significant optimisation has been made to LibCSS's selection engine performance. This is the code that works out which CSS rules apply to DOM elements, and calculates their computed styles. Recent <a href="">development builds</a> of NetSurf include this improvement.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">Static analysis of the NetSurf codebase</a> <span>22 Nov 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>NetSurf and several of our libraries have recently been added to the <a href="">Coverity Scan</a> service for open-source projects. It has enabled us to identify and fix quite a few bugs over a very short period. We also have the Clang static analyser set up as part of our <a href="">CI system</a>. For more information on the utilisation of static analysis by the NetSurf project, take a look at <a href="">this article</a>.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">Summary of recent development</a> <span>16 Oct 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>Some of the recent changes made to NetSurf have included a rewritten core treeview widget. It fixes bugs, provides a nicer look &amp; feel, and yields an improvement to startup time. The Global History, Hotlist (Bookmarks), Cookie Manager, and SSL Certificate Inspection treeviews have all been rewritten with the new treeview. Another recent change is the addition of undo and redo support to NetSurf's textarea widget.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">Continuous Integration experiences</a> <span>05 Sep 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>We've been running our Jenkins based <a href="">Continuous Integration (CI)</a> system for a year now. It now builds NetSurf and our libraries for multiple architecture, operating systems and with different compilers. It runs static analysis, automated testing, produces test coverage reports, code documentation and more. Vince has written up <a href="">our experiences</a> with the CI system.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">NetSurf 3.0 released</a> <span>20 Apr 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>NetSurf 3.0 contains many changes over the 2.x release series. The biggest difference is the use of our new Document Object Model library, <a href="">LibDOM</a>. This new library is a foundation that paves the way for us to implement a fully dynamic layout engine in the future. Other improvements in NetSurf 3.0 include completely new textarea support, ability to fetch and parse CSS in parallel with HTML documents, extensive behind-the-scenes refactoring, and a host of smaller changes and fixes. A more complete listing is available in the <a href="">Change Log</a>.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">NetSurf at the Wakefield Show</a> <span>23 Mar 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>The NetSurf developers will be exhibiting at the Wakefield RISC OS trade show on Saturday 20th April. Please visit our stand to discuss issues, future plans, or just to meet the developers.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">Developer guide &ndash; 2: Working with the codebase and community</a> <span>07 Mar 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>The second part to Vince's development guide for newcomers to the project. This one examines the code, how its arranged, and how to interact with the existing developers.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">Developer guide &ndash; 1: Getting &amp; building the source</a> <span>07 Mar 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>Vince is producing a series of posts to help enable new contributers get involved with the project. This first post covers the mechanics of acquiring and building the source.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">New textarea handling</a> <span>11 Feb 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>We've rewritten NetSurf's textarea support, so composing webmail, forum posting, and form filling should be more reliable now. Support for text selection and other behaviour is improved.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">Project development visulisations</a> <span>01 Jan 2013</span></dt>
+<dd>Vince has produced <a href="">Gource</a> animations that show the development of our project graphically. The videos habe been uploaded to <a href="">YouTube</a>.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">Early JavaScript builds available</a> <span>13 Dec 2012</span></dt>
+<dd>While there is a very long way to go before NetSurf becomes a fully JavaScript-capable browser, brave users may like to try the JavaScript enabled test builds from our <a href="">autobuilder</a>.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">Development progress</a> <span>05 Nov 2012</span></dt>
+<dd>The NetSurf Developers held another <a href="">workshop</a> over the weekend. During the event we were able to consolidate several aspects of the browser after the previous <a href="/projects/libdom/">LibDOM</a> integration. LibDOM's performance was optimised, and the remaining usage of LibXML was removed from NetSurf. Thanks to <a href="">Collabora</a> who kindly hosted the workshop.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">Moved from SVN to Git</a> <span>15 Jul 2012</span></dt>
+<dd>We have migrated from Subversion to Git for our source version control. See the <a href="">Getting started</a> and <a href="">Git cheat sheet</a> documents on the Wiki. Please let us know if you find anything amiss.</dd>
+<dt><a href="/downloads/">NetSurf 2.9 released</a> <span>28 Apr 2012</span></dt>
+<dd>NetSurf 2.9 contains many improvements over the previous release. The most significant changes are new multi-tasking behaviour, optimised URL handling, fetcher optimisations, cache optimisations, and faster CSS selection. Full details in the change log. We recommend all users upgrade.</dd>
+<dt><a href="">LibDOM progress</a> <span>26 Mar 2012</span></dt>
+<dd>The NetSurf Developers held a <a href="">developer workshop</a> over the weekend, during which much progress was made on <a href="/projects/libdom/">LibDOM</a> which sits at the heart of our <a href="">NetSurf 3.0 plans</a>. NetSurf trunk is now using the LibDOM library in place of LibXML2, and we hope to extract several benefits from this change over the coming months. Thanks to <a href="">Collabora</a> who kindly hosted the workshop.</dd>
+<dt><a href="/projects/ttf2f/">New home for TTF2f</a> <span>07 Dec 2011</span></dt>
+<dd>The RISC OS font conversion utility TTF2f has a new web page here, on the NetSurf site. It is capable of converting TrueType, OpenType and other formats to the native RISC OS format. It supports conversion of large fonts with wide Unicode coverage. Anyone wishing to develop TTF2f further should get in touch!</dd>
