Adding 0.2.3

    3: <P><B>Installation</B><BR>
    4: The newest build of Chimera is 0.2.3.  You can download it from the following locations:
    5: <p>
    6: <a href="http://idisk.mac.com/sdagley/Public/chimera23.dmg.gz">Steve's iDisk</a><br>
    7: <a href="http://people.netscape.com/sdagley/chimera/chimera23.dmg.gz">Netscape</a><br>
    8: <p>
    9: <b>What's New (0.2.2 -> 0.2.3)</b>
   10: <p>
   11: Chimera 0.2.2 was compiled with correct ATSUI (ATSUI with kerning and ligatures
   12: enabled).  Yes, we have that working, but as you saw, it slows things down substantially.
   13: Chimera 0.2.3 returns to the fast ATSUI as the default.  This pref will eventually be
   14: exposed in Advanced preferences (along with the ability to use Quickdraw as well).
   15: <p>
   16: The gamma correction regression present in 0.2.2 has been fixed in 0.2.3.
   17: <p>
   18: The form controls are now Aqua.  This includes button, checkboxes, radio buttons, textfields,
   19: listboxes and menulists.  Most importantly menulists now function! :)
   20: <p>
   21: Some more crash fixes also made it into 0.2.3.
   22: <P>
   23: Enjoy!

   26: <p><b>What's New (0.2.1 -> 0.2.2)</b>
   27: <p>
   28: Chimera can now open URLs sent to it from other apps, so you can
   29: now make Chimera your default browser and not have it sit there
   30: looking stupid when you tell it to load something. ;)
   31: <p>
   32: Text Zoom has been implemented, so you can now increase and decrease
   33: the font size used in a Web page.
   34: <p>
   35: Chimera now obeys the new minimum font size pref, ensuring that 
   36: Quartz-rendered fonts don't fall below the typical anti-aliasing cutoff
   37: point.
   38: Quartz rendering has been improved.  In addition to being speedier,
   39: it now has fixes for printing and for text spacing.
   40: <p>
   41: Chimera now has a bookmarks toolbar.  Like the Mozilla Classic personal
   42: toolbar, Chimera's toolbar can wrap to multiple rows and supports pages
   43: and folders.
   44: <p>
   45: Bookmarks management has been improved.  You can now specify where you
   46: want to create a new bookmark.  You can now create new folders.  
   47: The sidebar tree widget has been enhanced to support more keyboard
   48: navigation (left/right arrows to open/close, return to launch,
   49: delete key to delete, etc.).  
   50: <p>
   51: Bookmark groups have been fully implemented.  When adding a bookmark
   52: with multiple tabs open, you have the option of bookmarking all the
   53: tabs as a single group.  Use this feature to load bundles of pages in a single
   54: click!
   55: <p>
   56: Background tab loading will now work.  Background tabs will now refresh
   57: properly if left unattended.
   58: <p>
   59: Enjoy!  <br>

   63: <p><b>Building Chimera</b><br>
   64: <p>
   65: Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under
   66: the code name ChimChim).  You can find those instructions
   67: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/ChimChim.html">here</a>.
   68: Be aware that the downloadable build listed above contains numerous
   69: patches to Mozilla that have not yet been accepted, so any builds that
   70: you do will not be as stable or as performant as the downloadable
   71: build above.
   72: <p>
   73: If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.
