This status update page is updated approximately once a week. To get news in between these updates, you are invited to check out MozillaZine, a site devoted to Mozilla news and advocacy.
Camino now has a new search bar that offers built-in searching of Google, Google Images and the current site via Google Site Search (bug 158246).
Launching Downloaded Executable Files
It is now possible to launch downloaded executable files from within Mozilla (bug 91969).
Mail & Newsgroups now supports yEncode (yEnc) decoding (bug 119964). There are currently no plans to support yEnc encoding.
'No Proxy for:' IP Address Masks
The 'No Proxy for:' box in Preferences now supports /xx masks for IP addresses (bug 80918).
SMTP Server Issues
- The bug that causes the same SMTP server to appear multiple times in the Advanced Outgoing Server (SMTP) Settings dialog has been fixed (bug 96207).
- A problem with SMTP server user names containing @ or % characters has been fixed (bug 86370).
- If your incoming and outgoing mail servers are the same, Mozilla will use your incoming server user name as the user name for your SMTP server, rather than the first part of your email address (bug 107953).
Address Book Searching
Name searches in Address Book now match not the Display Name, but also the First Name and Last Name too (bug 125197). This makes Advanced Address Book Search consistent with Quick Search (the Search Bar).
Mail Start Page
The Mail Start Page is now loaded from the chrome, rather than downloaded from mozilla.org (bug 191171).
Translucent Non-Rectangular Chrome Windows
Mozilla can now do translucent non-rectangular chrome windows (bug 113232). This feature currently only works on GTK and will crash on 24-bit color displays.
Building with --disable-xul now works (bug 69995).
The tree is currently open (but check tinderbox for the latest status). The trunk will freeze for 1.4 Beta at midnight between Tuesday 22nd April and Wednesday 23rd April.
Stuff That Should Have Been in the Last Update
Minotaur Help, a site containing FAQs, tips and tricks for Minotaur, has launched.
