This is for those who are interested in the continued development of K-Meleon, and getting involved in the beta testing phase. There has just been a *new* beta build released, and it is based on Gecko/Mozilla v1.2b.

The message containing the links to download it are here:

Remember, do get involved and let Jeff know about any bugs and quirks you may find.

Not very good. It will not download because of missing file. After getting that file repeated crashes on Windows 95 and from what is written 98.
I wonder what the rush was to issue a new beta based on Mozilla 1.2b when they cannot provide a stable release based on the latest Mozilla milestones

Using beta build 647. I don't see any difference from the last. I still have to mix and match kplugin dll files to get it to work correctly for my customizations like I had to with build 488. Namely toolbars.dll(from 2 betas ago) and macros.dll(from Ulf's plugin page). The macros dll in the latest doesn't support prompt. And the toolbars dll crashes when I try to close Kmeleon as it did in build 488. Supposedly there's new macros capabilities with $link_url and $image_url but I don't know how to write macros. I just steal them from other people who've created them so I don't know what to do with those. I don't notice a difference with speed of the engine from 488 to 647. Both are pretty stable and fast. Maybe 647 is a tad faster at loading pages but I'm not sure. It's still very good. I just wish I could tell a difference between the two or some improvement.

A new EXE is available to correct the start up problems with the current beta. This is why we encourage beta testers to be on the developers list. More details here:

Thanks Andrew' in addition, I had to remove the HOTLIST.DLL from K-Meleon folder and it works fine now.
