Check Out XMLTerm!

Wednesday March 15th, 2000

R. Saravanan writes, "As Mozilla approaches beta, XMLterm finally approaches alpha. Check out the new screenshots at On Linux/Solaris, XMLterm can now be compiled simply by setting the configure option --with-extensions=xmlterm. XMLterm can also be used as a powerful Javascript console (check out a screenshot).

If you are a Linux mozilla user who also uses xterms in some form, please try out the M14-compatible version of the XMLterm binaries, which may be downloaded from here. Remember this is pre-alpha software; so don't delete your xterm binaries just yet! There are still many bugs and unimplemented features, but any feedback on the 'feel' of XMLterm will be appreciated."

What?? Mozilla never crashes!! ;)

Seriously though, within a couple of months after the release of Mozilla it's likely to be one of the most stable pieces of software you ever saw, thanks to the *huge* number of people debugging and sending talkback data and stack traces. That's not the case *now* of course, but that's what you get for using alpha software. It'll happen, and xmlterm will be as rock-solid as the rest of the OS (and *more* solid than some...)
