Get involved in Otter
Otter is in an exciting formative stage and is teeming with ideas to emulate and surpass Opera 12's familiar functionality. You can find out more about the development and the issues which are current on this GitHub page.

If you wish to contribute to the discussions, please start a thread here, including the issue # and exactly the same title to assist tracking of comments on the issue between DnD and Otter. By all means start a discussion on other issues that you think relevant to Otter. Note that information and ideas posted in this Ping are for free use by the Otter development.

Well, I will do my best to fill the empty headings with content and add what comes to mind.

Edit: I will surely have questions about some things. For example, right now it occurred to me that I have no clue where to get an overview of all the available mouse gestures. Mouse gestures cannot be reviewed and configured in UI like keyboard shortcuts can.

Where can I ask such questions? Will I create a new thread here or at github?

Edit2: Found the mouse gestures https://github.com/OtterBrowser/otter-browser/blob/master/resources/gestures/default.ini but if I have more questions, where will I create the thread?

@ersi, @Frenzie, yeah, we can start with that page, but later we would need to split into several sub pages, when there will be more content (just like our news section on main page should be split long time ago ;-)).

@Hebrew, yeah, these packages were broken after initial move to Qt 5.7.
I've updated URL for content blocking rules, thanks.

Great question! Just saw yesterday, that QtWebEngine-based build has more downloads than QtWebKit-based. Does it say us, that Blink in Otter is almost ready for daily usage?

ok, so heres the thing:

ones with QTWebEngine are Blink based and highly unstable
while those without it are WebKit based and stabler (as in... don't crash as much)

(you can check this on Help -> About Otter, it will say what it uses)
who it would be nice to properly label these on DL links

This seems to me like something that is best handled by the OS. One of the only user-facing improvements in Windows 10, for instance, is the fact that it now supports PDF printing by default instead of trying to push XPS.

Save to PDF is something that would have to be implemented within the browser though. In that case we're talking about a PDF document with a TOC, clickable hyperlinks, etc. Unfortunately I don't think Blink/WebKit supports that.
