This release includes a new download manager, new history sidebar panel, and a text encoding menu, along with the usual assortment of bug fixes. To find out more, check out the new project page, or read the release notes."

We've updated the Build Bar for both new nightlies and 0.7, and we always have the Camino™ forum for you to chat in. As far as the future for Camino™, the development team plans to move to the Mozilla trunk for the next release, with preliminary builds showing up to a 15% speed improvement on page loading times. We'll keep you posted as to how the move goes.

I am very excited to hear that the future Camino builds will finally more to the Mozilla trunk. I've been getting quick sick of problems in Gecko 1.0 that have been fixed in 1.3+ That said, I still use Camino because it's so much nicer. Thanks.

A long overdue release, but it's still exciting to see the project is still moving :)

Some old browser for UNIX that nobody uses, or cares about anymore, just happens to have the same name as Chimera, and then the name is dumped for Camino? I don't get it. I guess somebody freaked out, and decided to placate any potential liabilities. Seems wussy to me.

Well, there _was_ a legal complaint about the name, as far as I have been able to tell from talking to people about this last summer. So at that point it was a matter of changing the name or fighting it in court... You willing to pony up the cash for the latter?
