General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=Fred] I have found out, that K-Meleon 1.6 runs also with the files of Xulrunner 126.96.36.199pre. Debian Squeeze is the stable branch of one of the main Linux distributions, and it has a very conservative attitude concerning the applications that it uses in its rolling releases. The browser of Debian is Iceweasel, which is actually Firefox with a different name. The heart of Iceweasel in Debian Squeeze is Xulrunner 1.9.1.x . This is updated usually with backports as soon as securitry flaws appear in Firefox. There is now a Xulrunner 188.8.131.52pre for Linux, but also for Windows in the Mozilla nightlies. I presume, that Xulrunner 1.9.1 will soon be updated to Gecko 184.108.40.206 for Linux, and hopefully also for Windows. As Debian Squeeze will probably not change from Gecko 1.9.1.x to a higher Gecko version, I hope that updates for Xulrunner 1.9.1 will continue for a while. Debian releases new stable versions usually every 2 years. Debian Lenny 5.0 came out in 2009, Debian Squeeze 6.0 came out in 2011, so the next stable Debian 7.0 would appear in 2013. This gives K-Meleon 1.6 a chance to survive for a while as it is, provided that Xulrunner 1.9.1.x would be also updated in a Windows version. As Xulrunner 1.9.1 as well as k-meleon.exe from 1.7 need the 80's runtimes, and the older kplugins need the 70's runtimes, the 70's and 80's dlls would both have to be present in a variation based on Xulrunner 1.9.1.x .
