Yeah, but if it's to do with security then I find it strange why someone would be using 3.5 when 3.6 is more secure between the two.


Not exactly: in this moment 3.5 and 3.6 series are on the same level of security.
Of course this would change, if Mozilla will not update 3.5 line anymore (Firefox 3.5.18 as the last version).

Btw, for Win9x users it's not important anyway.

yes , but on my old W98SE machine Firefox 3.5.* run match better then 3.6.* (faster, less HD activity ....)

I'm not surprised by that: usually newest versions are at least a bit heavier than the previous ones.

Btw, I'm using Firefox 3.5 too (3.5.18).

The reason why to use FF 3.5.x is that this is the last version that supports the classic-java plugin. Since the nextGen plugin won't work on win98se this is the only way if you want to use the most recent java with your browser...

This is one of the most important reasons for me too.

Looks like that 3.5.19 version is still possible:

I have the latest version of propel Accelerator, Propel Accelerator 6.1.6.1147, which requires XP, working with Kernelex 4.5. After the installation reboot, I had to copy the file, msvcr90.dll, from the Propel Accelerator folder in c:\program files to the Windows system folder to get it working. Also, in order to have it load when opening Windows, which would ordinarily be the default behavior, I had to put it manually in my startup folder. Now that it's up and running, it seems to work just fine, better than the old Win98SE compatible version.

4.5 Final fixed the bug with the FreeCell solitaire game I mentioned many moons ago. :thumbup

Reversi still has a bug, but it's a new bug. The cursor now works fine, changing to and from crosshairs as intended. But now all the occupied squares are the same color! Rather challenging to play now; oh, well....

KernelEx-4.5-Final causes a GPF when the DR-DOS 7.03 "lock.exe" utility exits :

LOCK caused a general protection fault
in module LOCK.EXE at 0001:000001ee.

If you need a copy of this "lock.exe" utility (to reproduce this problem), DR-DOS 7.03 can be obtained from any of the following archive locations (Caldera, Inc. at the time, released DR-DOS 7.03 as a free download for non-commercial and evaluation use, as described in the 'LICENSE.TXT' file) :

ftp://ftp.uni-bayreuth.de/pub/pc/caldera/DR-DOS.703/
ftp://ftp.fsn.hu/pub/OpenDOS/DR-DOS.703/
http://replay.waybac...dos/DR-DOS.703/

While the entire package can be downloaded as 'dr703.exe', for the purposes of this exercise, the following two files are sufficient :

images/disk01.144
images/disk02.144


Also useful is a free utility to extract individual files from the above images, available via :

http://www.winimage.com/extract.htm

Once you have all three files (and extracted 'extract.exe' from 'extrac21.zip'), you can extract the 'lock.exe' utility as follows :

extract -e disk01.144 pnunpack.exe
extract -e disk02.144 lock.ex_
pnunpack lock.ex_

I really would like to know, what's going on with this project - is frozen, stopped, whatever?

The last update was made on 4 March (over six weeks ago) and Xeno is rarely seen here, on MSFN forum.

Xeno86 really isn't appearing often, but that's normal, he's never been around much. But every time he does post, he brings new interesting things. As for the KernelEx project, rest assured it's still going on strong, and there'll be further updates to it.

*****BUG REPORT*****

* Fixed: MSYS (broken)

since this fix, some programs like 7zip, and other GTK+ applications can't read/access the file/folder with non-english charcters (CJK System - Chinese/Japanese/Korean) and simbols.

just try this pheonix application (ssnes-GTK+)
https://github.com/d...win32-0.4.1.zip

rename (extension must be '*.smc' of '*.sfc') any file to (like) Chinese or Japanese and load it through 'ROM Path', then you won't be able to access/load the file properly


KenlelEX 4.5-beta2 worked/works just fine


**UPDATE**

GTK+ applications not Phoenix

Good news! Today, Xeno committed two new revisions (336 & 337). :)

KernelEx v4.5.1
Release announcement

Hi there!

Sorry for long wait folks. Unfortunately I have to confirm what some of you might have already suspected. The development of KernelEx has stalled. The release you see here is an almost unmodified version from February. I have decided to finally release it so that the work which has been done is not completely lost and so that you could benefit from it.

This is mainly a bug fix release with an addition of new feature for developers who want to hack around KernelEx and Windows APIs.
The update brings mainly fixes for Opera 11 and GTK application users but as usual the fixes might also help other applications.
Developers can now experiment with monitoring or filtering APIs on-the-fly in single applications without affecting the entire system.

What's new:
  • New KernelEx API Hook infrastructure for developers
  • Various bugfixes
Apps fixed / now working:
  • New Opera 11 non-MSI installer now works
  • Fixed download numbers in Opera 11 not being displayed properly
  • Fixed missing checkboxes in GTK applications – Pidgin and GIMP among others
  • Fixed Google Earth 5.2 installation on non-english systems

Please note that Opera 11 auto-update doesn’t currently work, so you have to perform the updates manually.

I wish I had more time, finally learn C and improve my x86 ASM skill (I like 68K, Z80, SuperH much more :P) and help with KernelEx...

Thank you for new version :D i'll be testing it out when I get back home :D

I hope it doesn't mean, that we shouldn't expect any new version in predictible future - IMHO, it's most important project for our small community.

Anyway, thank you warmly for update! :)

Yes, I suspected it. Though I hoped that Firefox 4 could be run on Windows 9x before this.

Well, Xeno86, many thanks from Windows 9x community and good luck!

Thanks Xeno86 for supporting all the Windows Me users of the world.

I'll definitely be saving my copies of KernelEx and Firefox 3.6.17.

Windows Me has reached it's zenith. It's all downhill now. :no:


I am thinking the same thing about 98. :unsure:
