  Description     : A wrapper library with simple API for embedding of Gecko browsers
 via XULRunner

A wrapper library that makes embedding of Gecko based browsers via XULRunner a 
simplified task. Designed for the Secondlife project, the library can be used
to display browsers on 3D OpenGL shapes as well as regular windows, by providing
access to a buffer that represents the display to be rendered.

No need to talk about XULRunner in the short description.

Ok this situation is this. This was brought up at the last open source
meeting and I discussed with Rob about the possibility of this. He is
very interested but as asked that the build environment can use cmake as
that is what they are very interested in internally now and want to
switch over everything to.

The main reason for cmake is to generate Visual studio projects and
xcode projets as well as the linux code from a single makefile.

So unless I do the cmakefile it is not going to happen for quite a
while. I will have a look at this but it will take a little time.

So for the moment the package is on hold and i will try again when we
have cmake working.

Regards

Robin

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Ok the latest story on this is as follows.

The original mozlib code that used the Mozilla xulrunner core got to a
stage where it was basicly usable, when working with xulrunner-1.8 code
base. xulrunner-1.9 has completely broken the API and the mozlib code no
longer works and it appears that it extremely difficult even to make it
work ever again with xulrunner-1.9 +. Upstream did try to contact
mozilla but this kind of embedding is not a priority for them so they
were not really interested.

Upstream has now abandoned mozilla/xulrunner in favour of webkit, in
particular the qt4 flavour of the webkit implementation. Currently this
version I have functional, and it can be built in to a debian package on
lenny or sid and used successfully, but with some bugs still.

I'm keeping my debian build details here
http://omvviewer.byteme.org.uk/mozlib-webkit.shtml

A current list of bugs against the webkit build can be seen here
http://jira.secondlife.com/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&mode=hide&pid=10050&sorter/order=DESC&sorter/field=priority&resolution=-1&component=10300

I'm going to keep updating my git tree with the latest releases of
upstreams code but its not really fit for a package until some of these
MOZ-XX bugs are squashed on the above jira issue tracker. But this is
being actively worked on now. There are a large number of very recent
bugs because upstream has just passed the code to there Q/A department
for a first parse so these should start to be knocked off one by one soon.

Robin

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of libllmozlib back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting libllmozlib, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 450850 ITP: libllmozlib -- A wrapper library with simple API for embedding of Gecko browsers via XULRunner
 owner 450850 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <450850@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--

AFAICS, libllmozlib is no longer used, having been replaced by libllqtwebkit2.
