Release Notes

For the latest stable version, visit the Source Code tab ( or see my blog.

A preview of the current state of the Awesomium 1.6 beta based WebBrowser control for .NET 3.5 SP1 and .NET 4.0. Note the .NET 4.0 version currently doesn't work (throws access violation; possibly mismatched release/debug dlls), but you're welcome to fix it. Also, there are these known issues:
  1. Scrolling the page leaves some artifacts behind; this appears to be an Awesomium issue and is being investigated.
  2. Resizing or otherwise transforming the WebBrowser suffers from flicker. This isn't an issue with previous versions (based on Awesomium 1.5.1). I'll improve this as soon as possible.
  3. Opening a second WebBrowser in the same process will crash (likely related to creating a second WebCore, rather than treating it as a singleton).
