Sigh.

    5: The newest build is 0.2.0.  <font color=red>The build is
    6: being placed on sdagley's people page at Netscape.  It's in
    7: the queue for publication, so it should show up in a few hours.

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

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