1.10 hyatt 9: <p><b>What's New In 0.2.0</b>
11: The latest build of Chimera demonstrates a highly experimental
12: implementation of Quartz rendering. The current build locks you
13: into Quartz, but the Quickdraw renderer will still be available
14: via a pref in a later point release. For now you're locked into
15: Quartz with the current build. Also, printing with Quartz turned on
16: is pretty busted, so don't even bother. :)
18: Chimera 0.2.0 has much improved scrolling over previous versions.
19: Most importantly it now uses native Aqua scrollbars rather than
20: emulating the look via the Appearance Manager. Scrolling is also
21: much faster, using both the wheel and the keyboard.
23: The tab browser feature has had some crash fixes and speed
24: enhancements. You can now also cycle through tabs via the keyboard
25: and close tabs. In addition the tab strip will auto-hide when only
26: one tab is being used.
1.13 hyatt 28: Support for Command and Shift clicking of links has been added. You
29: can use Command+Click to open a link in a new window. If you use the
30: Shift modifier, the window will load in the background. You can also
31: make Command/Shift open tabs instead by setting the same pref that is
32: used by Mozilla. The load links in background pref that Mozilla uses
33: is also supported by Chimera. (These prefs aren't exposed in Chimera's
34: UI yet, so you'll have to enter your secret .mozilla dir and edit your
35: prefs.js by hand.)
1.10 hyatt 37: Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar
38: and sidebar icons.
40: Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
41: stability fixes.
43: Enjoy! <br>

1.5 hyatt 49: Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under
50: the code name ChimChim). You can find those instructions
51: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/ChimChim.html">here</a>.
52: Be aware that the downloadable build listed above contains numerous
53: patches to Mozilla that have not yet been accepted, so any builds that
54: you do will not be as stable or as performant as the downloadable
55: build above.

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