Hi Everyone,

IcedTea-Web 1.3 is now released and available for download!

This release is the first of what we hope will be regular releases based on
time rather than features. It includes many bug fixes and new features.
Some of
the highlights include:

New features:
  - Web Start launch errors are now printed to give proper indication as to
the
    cause
  - Significant performance improvement when loading applets that refer to
    missing classes
  - Support for latest versions of Chromium
  - Security warning dialog improvements to better clarify security request
  - Support build with GTK2 and GTK3
  - Cookie write support (i.e set cookies in browser via Java/Applet)

Bug fixes:
  Common:
    - Applet window icon improved

  Plug-in:
    - PR975: Ignore classpaths specified in jar manifests when using
jnlp_href
    - PR1011: Treat folders as such when specified in archive tags
    - PR855: AppletStub getDocumentBase() now returns full URL
    - PR722: Unsigned META-INF entries are ignored
    - PR861: Jars can now load from non codebase hosts

  Web Start:
    - PR898: Large signed JNLP files now supported
    - PR811: URLs with spaces now handled correctly
