! 8: The above build contains experimental plugin support. If you value stability on pages
! 9: with plugins, you will probably want to avoid this build. If you want to see our progress,
! 10: then happy downloading. If not, you should probably stick with 0.2.3.

! 16: <b>What's New (0.2.3 -> 0.2.4)</b>
! 17: <p>
! 18: Plugins plugins plugins! Quicktime seems to work rather well, but Flash still has several
! 19: crashers. Pages with Flash *will* be unstable in this build. Do not replace 0.2.3 with
! 20: this build unless you like living on the edge. :)
! 21: <p>
! 22: - Gamma correction has been returned (hopefully) to the 0.2.1 level.
! 23: <p>
! 24: - Font defaults have been tweaked a fair bit to hopefully provide a better default browsing
! 25: experience than 0.2.3.
! 26: <p>
! 27: - Popups now position themselves better. (I won't go so far as to say "properly", but they're
! 28: better.)
! 29: <p>
! 30: - Textareas now have an Aqua appearance (this was left out of 0.2.3).

1.6 hyatt 33: <p>
1.25 hyatt 34: Chimera 0.2.2 was compiled with correct ATSUI (ATSUI with kerning and ligatures
35: enabled). Yes, we have that working, but as you saw, it slows things down substantially.
36: Chimera 0.2.3 returns to the fast ATSUI as the default. This pref will eventually be
37: exposed in Advanced preferences (along with the ability to use Quickdraw as well).
39: The gamma correction regression present in 0.2.2 has been fixed in 0.2.3.
41: The form controls are now Aqua. This includes button, checkboxes, radio buttons, textfields,
42: listboxes and menulists. Most importantly menulists now function! :)
44: Some more crash fixes also made it into 0.2.3.

1.19 hyatt 50: <p>
1.23 hyatt 51: Chimera can now open URLs sent to it from other apps, so you can
52: now make Chimera your default browser and not have it sit there
53: looking stupid when you tell it to load something. ;)
1.19 hyatt 54: <p>
1.22 hyatt 55: Text Zoom has been implemented, so you can now increase and decrease
56: the font size used in a Web page.
1.19 hyatt 57: <p>
1.22 hyatt 58: Chimera now obeys the new minimum font size pref, ensuring that
59: Quartz-rendered fonts don't fall below the typical anti-aliasing cutoff
61: Quartz rendering has been improved. In addition to being speedier,
62: it now has fixes for printing and for text spacing.
64: Chimera now has a bookmarks toolbar. Like the Mozilla Classic personal
65: toolbar, Chimera's toolbar can wrap to multiple rows and supports pages
66: and folders.
68: Bookmarks management has been improved. You can now specify where you
69: want to create a new bookmark. You can now create new folders.
70: The sidebar tree widget has been enhanced to support more keyboard
71: navigation (left/right arrows to open/close, return to launch,
72: delete key to delete, etc.).
74: Bookmark groups have been fully implemented. When adding a bookmark
75: with multiple tabs open, you have the option of bookmarking all the
76: tabs as a single group. Use this feature to load bundles of pages in a single
1.19 hyatt 78: <p>
1.22 hyatt 79: Background tab loading will now work. Background tabs will now refresh
80: properly if left unattended.

1.5 hyatt 88: Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under
89: the code name ChimChim). You can find those instructions
90: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/ChimChim.html">here</a>.
91: Be aware that the downloadable build listed above contains numerous
92: patches to Mozilla that have not yet been accepted, so any builds that
93: you do will not be as stable or as performant as the downloadable
94: build above.

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