    5: The newest build is 0.2.0.  <font color=red>I've had to
    6: remove the binary because mozdev simply can't handle the
    7: traffic.  Once I get it moved to a site with more bandwidth, I'll
    8: post the new link.

   11: <p><b>What's New In 0.2.0</b>
   12: <p>
   13: The latest build of Chimera demonstrates a highly experimental
   14: implementation of Quartz rendering.  The current build locks you
   15: into Quartz, but the Quickdraw renderer will still be available
   16: via a pref in a later point release.  For now you're locked into
   17: Quartz with the current build.  Also, printing with Quartz turned on
   18: is pretty busted, so don't even bother. :)
   19: <p>
   20: Chimera 0.2.0 has much improved scrolling over previous versions.
   21: Most importantly it now uses native Aqua scrollbars rather than 
   22: emulating the look via the Appearance Manager.  Scrolling is also
   23: much faster, using both the wheel and the keyboard.
   24: <p>
   25: The tab browser feature has had some crash fixes and speed
   26: enhancements.  You can now also cycle through tabs via the keyboard
   27: and close tabs.  In addition the tab strip will auto-hide when only
   28: one tab is being used.
   29: <p>
   30: Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar
   31: and sidebar icons. 
   32: <p>
   33: Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
   34: stability fixes.  
   35: <p>
   36: Enjoy!  <br>

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