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

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