1.14      hyatt       5: The newest build is 0.2.0.  <font color=red>The build is
                      6: being placed on sdagley's people page at Netscape.  It's in
                      7: the queue for publication, so it should show up in a few hours.

                     13: <p>
                     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. :)
                     20: <p>
                     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.
                     25: <p>
                     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.
                     30: <p>
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.)
                     39: <p>
1.10      hyatt      40: Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar
                     41: and sidebar icons. 
                     42: <p>
                     43: Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
                     44: stability fixes.  
                     45: <p>
                     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="">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.
1.3       hyatt      59: <p>
                     60: If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.
