I'm developing an app for Windows and Raspberry Pi using Xojo. I'm relying on the HTMLviewer heavily in places to render web driven content.

I have multiple Raspberry Pi 3s, reading the Xojo documentation I can see that HTMLViewers are not supported on Jessie, however I cannot run Wheezy as it will not run on the Pi 3 due to kernel support for ARMv8.

I have tried using Ubuntu Mate on the Pi and using sudo apt-get install libwebkitgtk-1.0.0, however this does not work as Ubuntu has deprecated 1.0.

I'm looking for suggestions as to how I can get the HTMLviewer working on the Raspberry Pi 3. I'm open to any suggestions - OS versions etc. The Pi will only be used for the custom app.

Run Wheezy (No, Really)

According to this answer, you can run Wheezy on the RPi3. You just need to update Wheezy on a different, older Pi before putting the SDcard into the RPi3.

Not sure if it's the best solution though...
