Any hope for a Wayfarer browser port for OS 4?

Now that MorphOS has the updated Wayfarer browser, is there any hope of a port for OS 4? Or is OS 4 not up to date enough to handle it?

There are no developers around to do the work.

Modern WebKit core on wich Wayfarer based needs fixes in our GCC (so in adtools repo). And the only person of late updating it was Sebastian (SBA), who didn't update it for half of the year now.

Also, it may need new changes in the kernel too, which need fast fixes and fast work, which also in current realms, not the case.

Just because the MorphOS people needed to change things in their kernel, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's also needed in the AmigaOS kernel.

Do we know exactly which changes they had to make in their kernel and why?

Best regards,

Niels

As the Wayfarer code is in ObjectiveC, wouldn't this be a big show stopper for a port?

Can't the "missing bits" be coded seperately as a shared library ?
