Release Notes: This release uses a library to read the Windows registry directly from the code instead of issuing regedit with a system exec. A system property has been added to give control over the method used for Windows browser discovery. Windows ME is now recognized as type Windows 9.x. Problems under Windows and Linux/Unix with file names containing $ have been fixed.
Release Notes: With this release, users no longer have to set up their own thread when launching a browser. The threading has been pushed into the library. Other changes include improved browser detection for windows, an option to force a new window, the addition of more browsers to Linux and Windows lists, and the ability to set a default browser via a system property.
Release Notes: This release adds support for SunOS, corrects problems with Windows 98 support, and adds support for dynamic browser detection on the Windows platform.
Release Notes: This release adds support for the Opera browser to the Linux/Unix module. The most significant addition is an API for browser targeting, which allows the caller to specify the browser to be used. Browser targeting is fully supported for Linux/Unix, partially supported on Windows, but not implemented for the Mac. A problem with accessing files on Windows systems with spaces in the path has been fixed.
Release Notes: This release adds logging support and support for the Konqueror browser, and fixes a problem in the Windows module.
