seeing as there seem to be some folks with good knowlede of C++ programming in this forum, along with a sense of dedication to keeping Windows 98 alive, I thought this would be the right place to post.
As some of you might know or might have noticed, Mozilla has decided to drop support for all pre-Windows 2000 platforms on the current trunk code. This will impact all releases of Firefox and Thunderbird off the 1.9 branch and beyond (i.e. Firefox 3.0 and beyond). Note that Firefox 2.0 will still support Windows 9x.
With Firefox 3, they will change their grahpics module to CAIRO, which uses some APIs that do not exist on Win9x.
Here are the references:
The "Kernel Update Project" is already one exciting thing happening in this forum. Perhaps some of you would be interested in contributing and trying to develop a compatibility library for Win9x and Mozilla, along the lines of what Robert Callahan posted in one of the bugzilla threads. Obviously there is still time to do this, but I thought it would be good to get discussions started early.
Let's see if anyone is interested! On my end, I have almost no knowledge of C++ programming, but I'd be glad to volunteer in other ways.
