    3: <P><B>Installation</B><BR>
    4: The newest build is 0.2.0.  
    5: <p>
    6: Download Chimera <a href="http://people.netscape.com/sdagley/chimera/chimera-latest.dmg.gz">here</a>.  <font color=red>The MIME type from the Netscape server is incorrect, so instead of clicking on the link, use your context menu

    9: <p><b>What's New In 0.2.0</b>
   10: <p>
   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. :)
   17: <p>
   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.
   22: <p>
   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.
   27: <p>
   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.)
   36: <p>
   37: Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar
   38: and sidebar icons. 
   39: <p>
   40: Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
   41: stability fixes.  
   42: <p>
   43: Enjoy!  <br>

   47: <p><b>Building Chimera</b><br>
   48: <p>
   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.
   56: <p>
   57: If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.
