1.25 hyatt 9: <b>What's New (0.2.2 -> 0.2.3)</b>
1.6 hyatt 10: <p>
1.25 hyatt 11: Chimera 0.2.2 was compiled with correct ATSUI (ATSUI with kerning and ligatures
12: enabled). Yes, we have that working, but as you saw, it slows things down substantially.
13: Chimera 0.2.3 returns to the fast ATSUI as the default. This pref will eventually be
14: exposed in Advanced preferences (along with the ability to use Quickdraw as well).
16: The gamma correction regression present in 0.2.2 has been fixed in 0.2.3.
18: The form controls are now Aqua. This includes button, checkboxes, radio buttons, textfields,
19: listboxes and menulists. Most importantly menulists now function! :)
21: Some more crash fixes also made it into 0.2.3.

1.19 hyatt 27: <p>
1.23 hyatt 28: Chimera can now open URLs sent to it from other apps, so you can
29: now make Chimera your default browser and not have it sit there
30: looking stupid when you tell it to load something. ;)
1.19 hyatt 31: <p>
1.22 hyatt 32: Text Zoom has been implemented, so you can now increase and decrease
33: the font size used in a Web page.
1.19 hyatt 34: <p>
1.22 hyatt 35: Chimera now obeys the new minimum font size pref, ensuring that
36: Quartz-rendered fonts don't fall below the typical anti-aliasing cutoff
38: Quartz rendering has been improved. In addition to being speedier,
39: it now has fixes for printing and for text spacing.
41: Chimera now has a bookmarks toolbar. Like the Mozilla Classic personal
42: toolbar, Chimera's toolbar can wrap to multiple rows and supports pages
43: and folders.
45: Bookmarks management has been improved. You can now specify where you
46: want to create a new bookmark. You can now create new folders.
47: The sidebar tree widget has been enhanced to support more keyboard
48: navigation (left/right arrows to open/close, return to launch,
49: delete key to delete, etc.).
51: Bookmark groups have been fully implemented. When adding a bookmark
52: with multiple tabs open, you have the option of bookmarking all the
53: tabs as a single group. Use this feature to load bundles of pages in a single
1.19 hyatt 55: <p>
1.22 hyatt 56: Background tab loading will now work. Background tabs will now refresh
57: properly if left unattended.

1.3 hyatt 64: <p>
1.5 hyatt 65: Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under
66: the code name ChimChim). You can find those instructions
67: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/ChimChim.html">here</a>.
68: Be aware that the downloadable build listed above contains numerous
69: patches to Mozilla that have not yet been accepted, so any builds that
70: you do will not be as stable or as performant as the downloadable
71: build above.

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