The multiple versions of OS and hardware are certainly a problem for developers (and one which I sympathise with), but in some sense it's a good problem that's a sign of a vibrant market. Particularly from an "outsider's perspective", the idea of multiple vendors competing in these areas is a healthy indication. The problem in the PC/Windows world is far far worse.
As far as the numbering of the OS is concerned, I'm not sure that what you suggest is really as sensible as it seems. We've already had "number trumping" before and it doesn't really make things clearer. Especially since there are benefits to both RO 4 and RO 5 which in my opinion (as a user of both versions) means that neither is a clear advance over the other.
If Castle and ROL can manage to create a single merged version, then that would be the time to call it version 6.
Language support module Iconv updated Version 0.09 of the character set conversion utility is available for download and future builds of NetSurf, which is among various applications that use it, will require this new release. The module can now perform conversions from the command line and supports ISO-8859-16 (Latin 10) plus a number of other fixes and tweaks. 2 comments, latest by jmb on 24/11/08 12:43PM.
