discontinued?

Sent from my HTC 10 using XDA Labs
Not officially.
Earlier this year, Google made some major changes to Chromium and the LineageOS devs made a major restructure from Gello browser to Jelly.
As Pyrope was based on Gello/Chromium it is entirely possible that Pyrope browser requires a complete re-write, as opposed to just tweaks.
In May the Dev was taking exams and vacation in July. In August he mentioned these changes and hinting at work on Chrome60 and analysing the changes to Jelly browser
That's a mere 4 months ago for a busy young dev working for free in his spare time.
It's possible the project may be stalled, but I'm sure if that if it is ever abandoned we will be informed.

A bit of an exaggeration, but yes there has been no specific update for a while, the last we heard was August last year about possible work on a new version rebased on Chromium60 here
But for now, I think we can assume the current version will receive no more updates.

I really like this browser so much, i think it's time to move on. :(

    Gello, the developed browser based on chromium / swe, directly from the CyanogenMod team is available for all 5.0+ devices. :D :D
    Optimized for Qualcomm® Snapdragon™*- Pyrope works on other devices which don't have a Snapdragon™ chip (Web Refiner Module not included)
    This app is based on chromium / swe and Cyanogemod, and it needs a proper build env to be compiled is like 40GB download and it takes a decent amount of time to download and compile. They don't make it that easy.

    KNOWN BUG:
    -Adblock work only with snapdragon device, I now stay work to version beta to fix it, the problem is in the chronium source update see the post #724http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=68515224&postcount=724
    FROM CODE AURORA FORUM
    WebRefiner libraries
    1.The libraries listed in src/components/web_refiner/ (downloaded during the 'gclient sync' phase) are built on top of SWE based on Chromium version M42. Attempting to use these libraries in any other version of chromium will result in instability.
    2.libswewebrefiner.so is built with dependency on libswe.so. If you are changing the chromium library name to something else in your project, then libswewebrefiner.so library loading will simply fail at runtime.
    3.Libraries support ARM and ARM64 architecture only.

    Are there any plans to update the base chromium version of this browser?

    Thanks!


    https://review.lineageos.org/#/c/154784/
    I think cm/lineage is finally switching to their own fork of chromium which is more up to date (55.0.2883.105) so this should be good news for gello security.


    Agree adblocking is essential, I have exynos handset and lack of blocking is the one thing stopping me using this browser. Is there any beta testing I could do to help @Ninnix96 bring this browser to exynos with blocking enabled? I'd love to help where possible particularly as the one blocking browser adblock browser is resource intensive and sometimes crashes, pyrope is definitely the better browser.


    I have starting to a 55 version of pyrope, ad block for all and I hope Google sync for all!
