Hi here's the latest release of Dooble compiled for Qt5. See the release notes under Help for what's new.

Is see only one single file in the zip - Dooble.exe. Do you mean starting this dooble.exe (not tried until yet) and look at the Help menu?

Hi

I renamed the old dooble.exe from c:\usr\bin and included this one. For the moment seems to work fine.

Thanks Dave

Maybe it's just me, but I could not download with Firefox 45. I could and did download using an older dooble build. The new build runs fine, but lacks a program icon on my system. That maybe the fault of Dynamic Icons. I like the improved history and bookmarks.

You are right Neil, that service (https://c.gmx.com/) does not work with Firefox 45. I had downloaded it with Dooble.

It is not executing for me. Kind of hard to read the help file when it is in the app that will not run.

Did you have the RPM version of Dooble installed? If not, you should install
It is not a help file, just what has changed.

Follow Tellies advice and look in popuplog.os2, it should have the same requirements unless I picked something in netlabs-exp, in which case there should be an entry in popuplog.os2

Meanwhile here's the icon that Paul has been distributing.
Edit: now the icon should be attached

Hello,

seems to work pretty good. Youtube plays smoothly for me, including sound. Sometimes websites stay white (going through google works then) and sometimes the programm doesn't close properly and i have to kill dooble.exe.

I notice "Open File" does not work, i tried with jpg and png files. Also in Textfields (like this one) the Del does not work. I can only delete using backspace. In the URL field Del works.

Thanls for the work done!

Yea, most of these problems are actually Qt5 or the Qt5webengine problems. Good to keep the official Bitwise RPM version around for comparison, at some point will have to open issues at Bitwise, it is still more Alpha quality. I see most of the same issues with the official Dooble-OS2 release.
As for work, Paul got the OS/2 patches accepted upstream, some of us and others have opened issues that the developer implemented, such as the tab fixes I asked for. So basically I'm just building the latest.
Edit: Fix typo

have to say a much better-stable version than my previous installed.
Opens/supports a good choice of sites as linkedin, youtube, gmail, my company organization email, OS2 World Forum ad others.
2-3 browsing windows opened same time smoothly running, and when it reaches the maximum work limit (4-5 browsing windows same time) program just quit, no system traps as it did before.
Also when exit/close the program no system traps as it did before.
Good job, right direction.
