Mozilla Deer Park Alpha 2 Release Candidates

Filed under
Software

I couldn't resist of posting these, despite of the fact I'm currently learning my Opera ways. As you should be aware of, Firefox 1.1 is currently being developed under the code-name Deer Park. Not so long ago I tried the Alpha 1 build, and it was very solid, especially for a piece of software in such an early stage, so perpaps Mozilla fans will be willing to give this a try and report any bugs.

These candidate builds are now available for testing for each of Windows, Mac and Linux--- with l10n builds to follow shortly. Please note that for our alpha releases there are feature and polish issues that have not yet been completely worked out. We release these milestones to get the core code out to our community to test out major gecko and platform changes as soon as possible. If these test out well, we'll be shipping Deer Park Alpha 2 shortly.

This will be second alpha in the Deer Park product development cycle and will include all major and significant features, whether pref'd on or off in order to achieve wider testing and to solicit quality feedback. The quality standard for this release is pre-production and therefore it should be of the quality required to support testing, and for Extension, theme and web application developers to begin compatibility and feature testing in advance of Firefox 1.1. It may break some but not all 1.0+ targeted Extensions. It should not contain any significant and known crashers.

CentOS 5.11 Officially Released, Probably the Last One in the Series

As you all know already, CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from sources provided by Red Hat. This is the eleventh update for the distribution and probably the last one. It features all the packages from all variants, including Server and Client, and the upstream repositories have been merged into a single one. Red Hat announced less than a month ago the release of their last update for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, 5.11. It stands to reason that CentOS 5.11 will also be the last update in the series.
