New Version and Updated Release Schedule for JxBrowser



Today we are glad to introduce JxBrowser 6.11 with long awaited custom protocol handler feature. It allows intercepting URL requests/responses for standard protocols such as HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, etc., and custom non-standard protocols (e.g. JAR).

You may have also noticed, that new versions of JxBrowser are now published more often. We do believe, that requested features and updates should be delivered, and go live as soon as possible. This is why we decided to release a new JxBrowser version every two weeks instead of once a month to provide you with the latest improvements, fixes, and new features.

We would like to thank all JxBrowser users for your requests and feedback. They help us make the library more suitable for your needs with each release.

Take a look at JxBrowser Release Notes for detailed information of every update of the library, and stay tuned for more product news!
