I have uploaded Arena v. 0.94 to sunsite.unc.edu:/pub/Linux/Incoming
The binary and a short readme are in the file Arena-0.94-bin.tar.gz

Arena is a WWW-browser for HTML3 and can do sub- and superscripts,
centering, maths, tables etc. The new version uses multithreaded CERN WWW
-library and has many old bugs fixed and some new introduced.

Here is the readme:


Welcome to use the binary of the WWW-browser Arena. The new version 0.94
is build on the top of the multithreaded version of CERN WWW library.
So, you can eg. read the text in a HTML-document, while the program loads
the inlined pictures. If you have tried Netscape, you know what I mean. 

This program is still beta, and the developers don't wan't to distribute
the source before they have got it more stable. However, the program works
already quite well, and as far as I know, Arena is the only WWW-browser,
which already complies most of the HTML3 standard (sub- and
superscripts, centering, maths, tables etc.).

The program should start without any options, but if you have problems
attaching the home page of Arena in CERN, you can give some other
WWW-server as a parameter. If the program starts, but seems not to do
anything, there might be some problems with your mailcap, and you can
give an option -nomailcap, to make it work.

The binary is dynamically linked to the following libraries:

        libX11.so.6 (DLL Jump 6.0) => /usr/X11/lib/libX11.so.6.0
        libm.so.4 (DLL Jump 4.5pl26) => /lib/libm.so.4.5.26
        libc.so.4 (DLL Jump 4.5pl26) => /lib/libc.so.4.5.26

The questions concerning the compilation for Linux can be sent to me,
but all the questions about the program itself should be sent to the
developers of the program, who are:

Dave Raggett (HP), Hakon Lie (CERN), Henrik Frystyk Nielsen (CERN),
Phill Hallam-Baker (CERN)
