+[[!meta title="NetSurf 3.5"]]
+[[!toc]] This page lists the main
+goals for NetSurf 3.5.
+ensure no library updates please, this is a fixup release because 3.4 is
+a bit of a lemon
+- <s>it's probably worth checking if the root certificates need an
+- check library is noisy if missing
+- need to fix build without libutf8proc
+- fix build without libcurl (for local only and non standard http
+- need to go on a docs rampage as everything is a bit out of date or
+ missing references
+- <s>themes integration causes segfault at start with installed
+ versions due to resource changes</s>
+ - gutted GTK application themes, now rely on GTK theming --vince
+- openBSD report issues with tests?
+### RISC OS
+- <s>system etc. merges have bad dates - master branch has a script to
+ fix this on install - verify results are ok</s>
+ - Done: I asked Dave Higton to verify this, and all was well.
+- bundled resource updates
+- any critical bugs?
+- <s>3.4 shipped broken</s>
+ - needs pile of fixes already applied to HEAD
+- <s>New compiler, needs testing and checking new binaries are
+ - have all the libraries been re-built with the new toolchain?
+ - Yes. --tlsa
+ - chrisy assures us it is all good --vince
+- <s>should we be doing something with os3 release yet?</s>
+ - probably not, it's still beta quality
+- need to sort out binary stripping.
+- <s>nasty crashes on redraw due to unexpected core locking</s>
+- <s>the Windows version has never worked on Windows 10 . nasty issues
+ in font splitting
+ <http://bugs.netsurf-browser.org/mantis/view.php?id=2445> </s>
+ - This front end has never been a release candidate. I suggest we
+ don't expend effort on this for 3.5 unless a Windows maintainer
+ steps up. --tlsa
+ - mostly work again so possible preview release candidate
+- completely non functional - crashes badly
+- Linux framebuffer surface input still broken
+- no feedback on if either version build properly on CI
