1.12      hyatt       5: The newest build is 0.2.0.  <font color=red>I've had to
                      6: remove the binary because mozdev simply can't handle the
                      7: traffic.  Once I get it moved to a site with more bandwidth, I'll
                      8: post the new link.

                     12: <p>
                     13: The latest build of Chimera demonstrates a highly experimental
                     14: implementation of Quartz rendering.  The current build locks you
                     15: into Quartz, but the Quickdraw renderer will still be available
                     16: via a pref in a later point release.  For now you're locked into
                     17: Quartz with the current build.  Also, printing with Quartz turned on
                     18: is pretty busted, so don't even bother. :)
                     19: <p>
                     20: Chimera 0.2.0 has much improved scrolling over previous versions.
                     21: Most importantly it now uses native Aqua scrollbars rather than 
                     22: emulating the look via the Appearance Manager.  Scrolling is also
                     23: much faster, using both the wheel and the keyboard.
                     24: <p>
                     25: The tab browser feature has had some crash fixes and speed
                     26: enhancements.  You can now also cycle through tabs via the keyboard
                     27: and close tabs.  In addition the tab strip will auto-hide when only
                     28: one tab is being used.
                     29: <p>
1.13    ! hyatt      30: Support for Command and Shift clicking of links has been added.  You
        !            31: can use Command+Click to open a link in a new window.  If you use the
        !            32: Shift modifier, the window will load in the background.  You can also
        !            33: make Command/Shift open tabs instead by setting the same pref that is
        !            34: used by Mozilla.  The load links in background pref that Mozilla uses
        !            35: is also supported by Chimera.  (These prefs aren't exposed in Chimera's
        !            36: UI yet, so you'll have to enter your secret .mozilla dir and edit your
        !            37: prefs.js by hand.)
        !            38: <p>
1.10      hyatt      39: Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar
                     40: and sidebar icons. 
                     41: <p>
                     42: Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
                     43: stability fixes.  
                     44: <p>

1.5       hyatt      51: Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under
                     52: the code name ChimChim).  You can find those instructions
                     53: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/ChimChim.html">here</a>.
                     54: Be aware that the downloadable build listed above contains numerous
                     55: patches to Mozilla that have not yet been accepted, so any builds that
                     56: you do will not be as stable or as performant as the downloadable
                     57: build above.

                     59: If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.
