Authored by kyrios123 on Aug 29 2019, 4:50 PM.


  • Security bug fixed: when links was connected to tor, it would send real dns requests outside the tor network when the displayed page contains <link rel="dns-prefetch" href="http://host.domain/">.
  • Fix a crash if:
    • External fonts are used
    • Rendering is optimized for LCD
    • The document contains some characters with zero width
  • Accept file urls in the form file://localhost/usr/bin/ or file://hostname/usr/bin/ according to RFC 8089
  • Fix an error "ERROR: select for write (5) failed: Bad file descriptor" that could happen if the master process was doing dns lookup while being suspended
  • Fixed a memory leak of the SSL structure
  • Try to open the file "/dev/input/mice" and use it instead of gpm (the user must be in the "input" group). This results in smooth mouse movement on the framebuffer.
  • Report "Lynx/Links" user agent when searching on Google so that Google returns non-css page
  • Support the zstd compression algorithm
  • Use proper cookie expiry
