So far I haven't worked on actual code today, but at least I've already gone through bugmail and reviewed the chabges needed to add API in WPE which will allow specifying the back end library to use:


It may not sound like a big deal, but it will allow sharing the same WPE WebKit build among different applications, regardless of which back end they want to use.

"The Lunar Orbiters never returned to Earth with the imagery. Instead, the Orbiter developed the 70mm film (yes film) and then raster scanned the negatives with a 5 micron spot (200 lines/mm resolution) and beamed the data back to Earth using lossless analog compression"

@jk ...yet still better in many ways 😅

@sir As someone working on Web engines, I can tell you that is amazing the hoops they have to go through in order to cope with all the cruft people throw into onscroll events... :aaaa:

@Gargron With that name it crossed my mind that it would be a mod about medieval “doctors” 😅
