Sigh.

    1: 
    2: <!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
    3: <P><B>Installation</B><BR>
    4: The newest build is 0.2.0.  
    5: <p>
    6: Download Chimera <a href="downloads/chimera-latest.dmg.gz">here</a>.
    7: <p>
    8: <p><b>What's New In 0.2.0</b>
    9: <p>
   10: The latest build of Chimera demonstrates a highly experimental
   11: implementation of Quartz rendering.  The current build locks you
   12: into Quartz, but the Quickdraw renderer will still be available
   13: via a pref in a later point release.  For now you're locked into
   14: Quartz with the current build.  Also, printing with Quartz turned on
   15: is pretty busted, so don't even bother. :)
   16: <p>
   17: Chimera 0.2.0 has much improved scrolling over previous versions.
   18: Most importantly it now uses native Aqua scrollbars rather than 
   19: emulating the look via the Appearance Manager.  Scrolling is also
   20: much faster, using both the wheel and the keyboard.
   21: <p>
   22: The tab browser feature has had some crash fixes and speed
   23: enhancements.  You can now also cycle through tabs via the keyboard
   24: and close tabs.  In addition the tab strip will auto-hide when only
   25: one tab is being used.
   26: <p>
   27: Support for Command and Shift clicking of links has been added.  You
   28: can use Command+Click to open a link in a new window.  If you use the
   29: Shift modifier, the window will load in the background.  You can also
   30: make Command/Shift open tabs instead by setting the same pref that is
   31: used by Mozilla.  The load links in background pref that Mozilla uses
   32: is also supported by Chimera.  (These prefs aren't exposed in Chimera's
   33: UI yet, so you'll have to enter your secret .mozilla dir and edit your
   34: prefs.js by hand.)
   35: <p>
   36: Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar
   37: and sidebar icons. 
   38: <p>
   39: Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
   40: stability fixes.  
   41: <p>
   42: Enjoy!  <br>

   46: <p><b>Building Chimera</b><br>
   47: <p>
   48: Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under
   49: the code name ChimChim).  You can find those instructions
   50: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/ChimChim.html">here</a>.
   51: Be aware that the downloadable build listed above contains numerous
   52: patches to Mozilla that have not yet been accepted, so any builds that
   53: you do will not be as stable or as performant as the downloadable
   54: build above.
   55: <p>
   56: If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.
