Is K-Meleon a one man show?

Just wanted to know if K-Meleon development is really a one man show and is this the reason why there are no frequent updates?

Thanks

Chris,

Since its inception, KM has been the product of one developer and coders who help out. KM 1.5.4 has been out for a few months now and KM 1.6/1.7 is in alpha code. FF has changed things up with the Gecko 1.9.xx engine and so there are more changes required for browsers like Galeon, Camino and K-Meleon to work.

Which version are you using?

P.S. I started with KM 0.6 <g>

This is a one man show currently. Since only one of the devs had some spare time.

Fell free to join the devs with Your spare time and competence.

greetings to Dubai

p.s. How is Your Arab translation of K-Meleon going or whatever You have to contibute?

Currently this is the only Windows browser with a viable user base that is not a commercialised project, that sold either its Search Engine position or received seeding money or...

So we all got to accept that it is done solely in the spare time of a dev or two. Else we ship in some of our own time and effort.

Chris,

Just wanted to add that Desga2 has been providing KM with unofficial bug fix updates for KM for some time now.

Hi, Chris

Updates may be infrequent but 20 versions over the past 8 years and still counting. In addition, I figure there must have been about a half dozen versions prior to 2002. I was still learning to use 5.3 when 5.4 was released and no sooner than I downloaded and began trying out 1.6a4, the development 1.7a was already in the works.

To completely translate K-Meleon, there are three different types of files to translate:

exe and dll files > ResHacker
kml files > text editor
jar files > prepare a jar file with the en-US model, and your locale files for seamonkey.

chrome is the hardest to do, but we all have made it and it's doable.

The model (a 7z archiv) is located on the translation page, here:

Chris, I admit that I pulled You leg, when I asked how far Your contribution is smiling smiley

The native speakers of a language must do the translation.
Or it is not done. The project does not need the translation.

K-Meleon devs or other translators give technical assistance when needed.


p.s. You have other mail from me. Please confirm when You get it.

Hey,

Thanks for changing my password

I changed it also

I think I will ask my friend who translate many other software into Arabic if he is willing to do it for K-Meleon

Regards

BTW: Please use Immunet

I hope nothing happens to Dorian. I would hate having to switch to any other browser. It would be like going from Bugatti Veyron back to Renault all over again. grinning smiley
