After 6 years Sciter Engine finally got its own home : sciter.com.
The site is not complete though, I am still working on content, documentation in particular. The plan is to combine in one place stuff that was spread across many sites and blog articles.
Forum users are advised to re-register on Sciter’s new forum at sciter.com/forums/ hope you will find it more comfortable.
Note #1: we have changed Sciter prices.
Note #2: Sciter’s versions RSS channel is here, please update your links.

I am adding zip resource packaging support to Sciter v. 184.108.40.206.
Imagine that you have some folder where your app files are located:
then you can load it into the Sciter using …/content/index.htm path. Nothing new up to this moment.
But with ZIP packaging support you can compress that folder into single content.zip file and load that zip into the engine as a whole using …/content.zip url.
Sciter will unzip that archive on the fly and will try to find and load either one of following files at its root: index.htm, index.html, main.htm or main.html.
All relative links inside that file will be resolved against content of the zip. So if you have <img src=”images/img1.png”> then its URl will be resolved to artificial
…/content.zip/images/img1.png and the image will be loaded from the zip.
Given schema allows to use same content in a folder or as packaged into zip file without any changes.
Among other use cases consider zip packaging for downloading applications over the wire – it will minimize bandwidth and eliminate multiple http connection requests for resources of the application.

That’s Norton 360 of Symantec and its Sciter based UI in transition from 2007 to these days:
They are updating UI and styles each year, some screenshots are not present.

FreeConferenceCall company has published new version of their video conferencing application that aims at one-presenter-thousands-viewers video conferences and screen sharing.
Their application works on Windows and OS X and uses solely Sciter based UI with extensive use of Sciter’s unique popup DOM elements. Even video is rendered by Sciter with custom native video frames providers.
It is probably hard to realize, but that bar on the top and popup from it is HTML/CSS in reality.
