bonsai.mozilla.org will tell you. I hope to have the 1.1 "What's New" section of the release notes finished by tomorrow but you can get a pretty good idea by reading the 1.1alpha and 1.1beta release notes. We don't take new features in the 1.1final polish and cleanup cycle so there won't be any significant additions to the What's New section.

Well, for 1.1 bugs 164086 and 163598. As us plebs aren't authorised to read Bug 164086, that means that Bonsai will not tell us what changes have been made recently. So Asa, how about telling us what is going on?

There have been over 500 bugs resolved as fixed on the 1.0.1 branch since Mozilla 1.0 was released and there have been over 1500 additional bugs fixed for 1.1. Out of that list of fixes there have been a handful of security fixes which will, according to the Mozilla Security Bug Policy <http://www.mozilla.org/pr…security-bugs-policy.html> be opened to the public as soon the bug reporters and the mozilla.org security group are ready to do so (probably after 1.0.1 and 1.1 have been released). So if you want details about all of the fixes that are new to these upcoming releases then ask bonsai. If you want to know about a small handful of security bugs out of the more than a thousand fixes that have happened since 1.0 then you'll have to wait until those bugs are made public.

Thanks, I read the "What's new" sections for 1.1alpha and 1.1beta. I'm looking forward to reading the What's new sections for the two new versions.

But, I went to bonsai.mozilla.org, and couldn't figure out how to get it to tell me what has been fixed between 1.00 and 1.01, or what has been fixed between 1.00 and 1.1. How do I do this?

There will be nothing more in the What's New section than what's in the 1.1alpha and beta What's New lists.

With Bonsai you can query for changes between specific dated and on specific branches.

#12 MARQUEE :(

Since when did Mozilla start supporting marquee? I downloaded the latest-1.1 version and upgraded from 1.1-beta, and suddenly text is scrolling accross the screen on some certain sites. I check my other computer which still has the official 1.1-beta and it does not scroll there. Select the line of text that is scrolling and view-selection-source, and its in a marquee tag. Isnt that a IE-specific thing?

Apparently Mozilla doesnt support Marquee all the way yet. . . here is a good example of how to annoy Mozilla users with a really slow-paced scroll that will be much faster in IE:

marquee scrollAmount=1 scrollDelay=3 trueSpeed=true

Apparently Mozilla doesnt support the 'trueSpeed' parameter, but more importantly, we need a option to disable this as well as blink :)

Isn't it possible to do this with a user stylesheet? For BLINK I am sure:

blink {text-decoration:none !important;}

My guess for disabling MARQUEE:

marquee {text-decoration: none !important;}

But I didn't try. Somebody can comment on this?

In the chrome/ directory of your profile, create a file userContent.css (if it doesn't exist yet), and add this line:

marquee { -moz-binding: none; } You can also add overflow: auto; and display: block; for better display.

The bug for creating a pref for marquee and turning it off by default is 161109: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=161109> - it's got a patch by David Baron.

Other than surfing a few sites that use it extensively (eg Bugzilla), try this list (copied from some bug or other ages ago):

The main site navigation bar consists of the following eight items: * 'Top' button -- <link rel="start" /> * 'Up' button -- <link rel="parent" />, <link rel="up" />, etc. * 'First' button -- <link rel="first" /> * 'Previous' button -- <link rel="prev" /> * 'Next' button -- <link rel="next" /> * 'Last' button -- <link rel="last" /> * 'Document' menu -- see below * 'More' menu -- see below

The 'Document' menu supports the following: * 'Table of Contents' item -- <link rel="contents" /> * 'Chapters' menu -- Any number of <link rel="chapter" /> * 'Sections' menu -- Any number of <link rel="section" /> * 'Subsections' menu -- Any number of <link rel="subsection" /> * 'Appendices' menu -- Any number of <link rel="appendix" /> * 'Glossary' item -- <link rel="glossary" /> * 'Index' item -- <link rel="index" />

The 'More' menu supports the following: * 'Help' item -- <link rel="help" /> * 'Search' item -- <link rel="search" /> * 'Authors' item -- <link rel="author" />, <link rev="made" />, etc. * 'Copyright' item -- <link rel="copyright" /> * 'Bookmarks' menu -- Any number of <link rel="bookmark" /> * 'Other Versions' menu -- Any number of <link rel="alternate" /> * Additional menus -- Unrecognised values, e.g. one or more <link rel="pineapple" />, receive their own menu

There aren't official "RC" versions of 1.1 (where official means 'moved from the nightly directory to the releases directory'). If you want to test the latest candidate builds ("release candidates") then you can get the builds from the latest 1.1 directory at mozilla.org's ftp site <http://komodo.mozilla.org…zilla/nightly/latest-1.1/> .

Thanx. So does that mean only 1.0 is a long lived branch? I mean there will be perhaps 1.0.2 and so on but no 1.1.x.

1.0 is a long lived branch. There will perhaps be a 1.0.2, 1.0.3, 1.0.4, etc. released from that branch. See <http://www.mozilla.org/ro…dmap.html#tree-management>

#8 rpms of the 1.1 version?

Sunday August 25th, 2002 7:35 PM

Reply to this message

I'm happy to test versions to try and find problems and report bugs etc, but like others I know I'm not that keen to go through compiling each new build. Any chance of rpms being available? I know that it'll be more work, but it'd also be more eyes looking for probs.

cheers,

There are tar.gz-builds available. No need to compile it.

To test it as user, do:

tar -xzf mozilla-i686-pc-linux-gnu-sea.tar.gz cd mozilla-installer ./mozilla-installer

... and there you go.

1.0.1 contains bugfixes to 1.0.0.

1.1 contains the same bugfixes + new features.

Personally, I stick with 1.0.1 cause I love it's stability and familiarity. It's like 1.0 without the oingo. And it's great to develop skins for because they would work in Netscape 7.

But most people would go for 1.1 because it has a few extras not found in 1.0/1.0.1.

I have chosen 1.1 for a silly reason, really. When I do a "right click" with my mouse, "Open Link in New Window" is on top, like previous Netscapes. In 1.0 & 1.0.1 it is second to/below "Open Link in New Tab". I prefer Windows over Tabs.

Tabs are so cool, and I have my middle mouse button set to "open link in new tab" (in Mozilla 1.0). But maybe you can set your middle mouse button to "open link in new window" since you prefer windows. It's a lot easier than using the right-click menu.

By default, a middle click on a link opens the link in a new window, you can change the default under edit/preferences/navigator/tabbedBrowsing. Make sure that no other programm takes over your mouse button for something else (like the Logitech driver for simulating doubleClick or similar).
