General discussion about K-Meleon.
[quote=ndebord] [quote=Fred] It would probably work, but the main problem is, that Firefox 3.6.x, on which K-Meleon would have to be based, is reaching the EOL end of life sooner or later. The existing k-meleon.exe's do unfortunately not work with Firefox 7 and upcoming Firefox updates. This would need a new k-meleon.exe etc to be developped, and I do not know how far such a project is at the moment. My KM 17 variation with the old kplugins can be updated still, but only as long as Mozilla will support FF 3.6.x . For earlier versions, the support was available for up to a year after the release of the new Firefox version, but this is very uncertain now, after the announcements of some of the Mozilla developers. Fred[/quote] Fred, As I understand it, one of the problems with KM 1.7 is the kplugins from KM 1.6 don't work (some of them that is) and so your use of KM 1.5.4 is why I posted this message... small ray of light in the tunnel. Yup, know about the problems with Gecko 2.0. As for Gecko 1.9.2 (Firefox 3.6.xxx), because of complaints from Enterprise users and because Debian is still using 3.6 in its official variation of Firefox (Iceweasel), support will probably continue for some time... not a long period of time, but some time. Mozilla Corp. backed off of Asa's extreme pronouncements and quietly changed their policy. Don't know what to say about building a new executable, as I have never been a coder. We need a C++ developer to reappear for K-Meleon, whether it be Gecko as the engine or do like others have done, move to WebKit. I do not like the idea of saying goodbye to KKO's macro scripting improvements. FWIW, I use PSI 2 to tell me if my software is bad and it says that KM 1.6 is OK (for now that is). It just makes me think that a KM 1.7beta is a possibility as you have demonstrated here.[/quote]
