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:
The second bug affects accessing sites using SSL:
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.
