Am I the only one who can't use Topics in the browser since one of the later releases?

I'm using this:
mob/Login()
 src << browse("<a href=#\ref[src]>test</a>")
mob/Topic()
 src << "Is this working?"

No effect at all. If I don't use browse, it works.

You are correct, but this is intentional. Links inside the browser are now http:// by default, so if you want to make byond:// links you have to explicitely set them:

src << browse("<a href=byond://#\ref[src]>test</a>")

I think that the old byond:// default was more sensical (and consistent with the text links), but it caused a whole bunch of subtle problems with the parsing so until I can sit down and resolve them I'd prefer to do things this way. It's better practice to always preface links with the protocol (byond:// or http://) anyway.

Sorry for the inconvenience! These little things sometimes are hard to notice in the massive notes.

No problem, thanks! Since there are many new features not mentioned anywhere else than the release notes, could you put them all together in a zip file, until you updated the docs?
