Basic changes:

  • Implemented the missing capabilities of the HTML element ‹dialog›including tools for displaying modal dialogs and stylizing the background (for example, darkening the rest of the page content when the dialog is active).
  • Added the ability to configure the distortion interval to prevent indirect identification of the system by the rendering features of the Canvas element (hashes from the rendering of the same Canvas content on different systems may differ, which is used for identification).
  • Added support for additional units of measurement of visible area sizes (viewport) – svw, svh, svmin, svmax, lvw, lvh, lvmin, lvmax, dvw, dvh, dvmin, dvmax, vb, vi, svb, svi, lvb, lvi, dvb and dvi.
  • Removed legacy FIPS module and code for storing passwords in DBM files.
  • CSS allows values fit-content without the “-moz” prefix (“-moz-fit-content”).
  • Problems with building using GCC 14 and Clang 16 have been resolved.
