Deer Park Alpha Bits

July 8, 2005


For the past few weeks, I have been dutifully upgrading my Firefox configuration with the most recent nightly builds. I do this for two reasons. First, I want to help with the QA process and provide feedback when problems arise. Second, I am just a sorry soul that loves to sail the stormy seas on a dingy! Seriously, I do this because I love seeing what’s new when it is at its newest.

This morning, I am seeing something at its newest. As noted earlier, I have been testing the automatic update facility in the Deer Park builds. And after upgrading this morning, I checked the About diakog on my Windows build. What to my wondering eyes did appear, but an Alpha 2 tag for my Deer Park reindeer. I haven’t seen any confirmations of this fact yet, but I am excited to see it.

So what’s new? Well, SVG is in the build. And the new automatic installer is in the build. And there have been a host of bugs squashed along the way. Since I am now seeing the tag in the Help dialog, I would expect a formal announcement sometime in the next couple of days.
