Deer Park Alpha Candidate

May 24, 2005

Well, it looks like the march towards the next version of Firefox is now well underway. Asa has announced that the nightly trunk now represents code bits that will find their way into the Deer Park Alpha. What is Deer Park? Well, its the code name for the Firefox 1.1 product. According to the roadmap, the beta for Firefox 1.1 will arrive in June.

So what’s in the build? Well, it includes the latest security bits. It also includes inline SVG support. Finally, it includes new bits for the Gecko rendering engine. This is good stuff. But some of the really cool stuff is still “in the wings.” In particular, per site options for the browser should be available in the 1.1 -> 2.0 timeframe (think July or later). In the meantime, I’m loving the new bits…
