[quote=guenter] [quote=bksening] [quote=rodocop]But KM hadn't mastered even GRE 2.0 so it has 'improvement space' at least up to Gecko 8-9 without losing compatibility :-) More thoughts I'll keep to myself as I'm not a programmer...[/quote] Because KM should really "improve" for GRE 2.0, an outdated and slow rendering engine???? Is that something actually desired? Will it even be practical? My other post was responding to the previous comment "Firefox 3.6 is still fully supported", which is talking about official support for FF versions, which actually is all about official support for the OSes they run on. I actually find it funny that Mozilla lists Win2K as a supported version, because that is end-of-life as well. Microsoft won't be providing support if any issues are found with Win2K. And now FF3.6 is slated for EOL in April 2012, and an Extended Support Release (ESR) will be created based on FF10. At that point there will no longer be any Mozilla support for FF3.6. https://wiki.mozilla.org/Enterprise/Firefox/ExtendedSupport:Proposal What kind of development will KM see in the next 4 months? Where will KM be headed after that? Hopefully KM will at least move to code based on FF10, instead of trying to work with FF3.6 code which is outdated and soon will not be supported anymore.[/quote] 1.) Are You unaware of the fact that K-Meleon is not supported by any active c++ coder currently? No matter what You think is practical... K-Meleon 1.6 can be finished without changing C code. That is GRE 3.5.[b]1[/b].x. It is either that or nothing. 2.) Win2000 can run Win32.exes. No matter whether it reached EOL & whether MS left their customers in the rain. People will not throw their hardware away unless they can afford to replace it. MS is jeopardizing their other customers when they stop fixing critical problems for their EOL Versions that folks still use. 3.) If there is no C++ coder that has time and has interest in the project there will be no version for 3.6.2.x beyond the 1.7.alpha nor anything else like FF-GRE 10 support.[/quote]
