    4: 
    5: The newest build is 0.2.0.  You can download it 
    6: <a href="downloads/chimera-latest.dmg.tar.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: Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar
   28: and sidebar icons. 
   29: <p>
   30: Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
   31: stability fixes.  
   32: <p>
   33: Enjoy!  <br>

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