Activity
========

Michael
-------

* Coverity fix for LibCSS that makes the select hash insertion at start of non-empty list code more readable.
* Worked with Daniel on fixing NULL node hover crash on page with all content set to `visibility: hidden`.
* Much plotting and planning of libnslayout's text layout, with Daniel.
* Looked at browser window scale stuff with Vince and moved the scale handling for invalidate to the core, and updated the GTK front end.
* Setting up of frameworks for new libparagraph stuff.
* Updated duktape to version 2.4.0.
* Made local-history bitmaps scale with DPI
* Made iframe test on <https://test.netsurf-browser.org/html/iframe.html>
* Attempted to add support for core window `scroll_visible` to RISC OS front end.  (Still to be tested.)
* Added support for scaling keyboard shortcuts to nsfb.
* Added support for scrolling core windows to the RISC OS front end.
* Fixed the RISC OS core window get_window_dimensions to handle toolbar height.
* Made all the core window callbacks return nserror instead of void.
  - And updated all the front ends.
* Changed the core window interface for scrolling from scroll_visible to much simpler get/set scroll APIs.
* Reimplemented old scroll_visisble API in the core on top of the new set/get scroll and get_window_dimensions, using Daniel's algorithm from the GTK front end.

Daniel
------

* A number of bug fixes
* Worked with Michael planning text layout
* Acquired a polyfill for `Array.from()` and fixed `consoleFormatter`.
* Fixed a typo (`BUTTOM`)
* Made it so that cURL fetches will abort early if possible
* Updated stacktrace handling to new duktape
* Added cookie setting support
* Wrote reload support into monkey driver/farmer
* Added a cookie test using JS and a new cookies CGI
* Various cleanups with `fetch_fdset()` vs `schedule_run()`
* Added extra diagnostics during monkeyfarmer shutdown
* Fixed the oldest bug!  (Added scroll-visible to local history and added key
  navigation)
* Did similarly to treeview (scroll-visible)
* Added click support to monkey, monkeyfarmer, monkey-driver, and added a test
  to netsurf-test which will use it.
* More robustification of the asyncio loop in monkeyfarmer.
* Added additional intuitive nav to local history
* Added a 'aborted-fetch' test (and fixed monkey_driver a bit)

Vince
-----

* Restored OpenBSD to functionality in the CI
* Splitting up of `browser.c`
* Removed `scale` from `_invalidate`.
* Removed scaling from `get_dimensions`.
* Re-fixed Haiku worker in CI.
* Cleared out leftover junk builds from the CI carrier.
* Continued the `scale`ectomy in `browser_window_mouse_click()`
