    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: Support for Command and Shift clicking of links has been added.  You
   31: can use Command+Click to open a link in a new window.  If you use the
   32: Shift modifier, the window will load in the background.  You can also
   33: make Command/Shift open tabs instead by setting the same pref that is
   34: used by Mozilla.  The load links in background pref that Mozilla uses
   35: is also supported by Chimera.  (These prefs aren't exposed in Chimera's
   36: UI yet, so you'll have to enter your secret .mozilla dir and edit your
   37: prefs.js by hand.)
   38: <p>
   39: Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar
   40: and sidebar icons. 
   41: <p>
   42: Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
   43: stability fixes.  
   44: <p>
   45: Enjoy!  <br>

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