Development Update

I know many of you are anxious for the next release of K-Meleon. On the K-Meleon side, things are pretty much ready to roll. However, we have two "show-stopper" bugs in the Mozilla code. The first has resulted in downloading being broken such that any attempt to download in K-Meleon fails. Fortunately, this does appear to finally have the attention of the Mozilla team:

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134523

The second bug affects accessing sites using SSL:

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113007

This bug prevents users from accessing sites like Hotmail.com or anything else requiring a secure connection. Mozilla is aware of the bug and they have indicated that they will try to get this corrected quickly.

Our release is on hold until these two bugs are fixed. Unfortunately, that leaves us at the mercy of the Mozilla coders. However, once those bugs are corrected, we will do our best to release K-Meleon 0.7 as soon as possible. As always, we will be doing testing right up to the point that we release to ensure that we release a browser as free of bugs as is possible. For those who are beta-testing, your input is very important to ensuring that happens.

We appreciate those of you who have been patient with the time that is has taken us to reach release 0.7. Based on our beta-testing of the new release, I think you'll find it worth the wait.

Everybody with a Bugzilla account can vote for these bugs.
(Don't know if that helps, but you never know...)

Voting at Bugzilla always helps get the Mozilla people's attention. But I think they are on to both of these issues since they seem to be affecting all embedders. Still, some votes would probably point out the importance of getting this fixed. I just hope people don't post comments like "fix this now!". That will only tick off the Mozilla coders.

Looks like we can shift our votes here:

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=113007

the other bug is being reported as fixed. We'll have to build and test to confirm but that is good news.

Yeah, right... ;-)

I've seen in bugzilla there is a "band-aid fix" for bug #134523, but they still talk about some problems with a progress dialog?

JanC,

I think there's some debate between the Mozilla people about which is the correct fix. I think that will be sorted out shortly.
