Can't we have anything for GNUstep? I'd really like to see how this is coming out but I don't have a Mac! Whatever happened to Vespucci, the web browser that was posted to the Wiki a few weeks ago? It seemed interesting
but the download link wasn't working.

Some Patience please...

We are happy that it works so far and now we have to dig out why it
works on the Mac and partially on mySTEP but not on GNUstep some issue
with NSURLConnection).

Possibly simply that nobody has implemented http download using it yet (it's been on the task list for quite a while, but nobody has volunteered). Without going back to check, my recollection is that mySTEP has a skeletal implementation implementation of the recent macOS-X URL handling classes with most methods doing nothing, but with just enough implemented to download simple xml pages, while gnustep has a more complete implementation (for example the code for basic and digest authentication is present and working in GNUstep and used by NSURLHandl) but misses the functionality to actually make NSURLConnection work. Most likely copying a little bit of download logic from mySTEP would be sufficient to get it working.

Alternatively the SimpleWebKit code could just use NSURL or NSURLHandle to download stuff ... a quick fix, but it would be better to enhance gnustep.
