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.

1.10 hyatt 11: <p><b>What's New In 0.2.0</b>
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. :)
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.
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.
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.
42: Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
43: stability fixes.
45: Enjoy! <br>

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.
