Mozilla 1.7 Release Candidate 3 Available

Tuesday June 8th, 2004

dmbtech writes "Mozilla 1.7 RC3 was released today. This is the final-draft-like release for the stable 1.7 milestone. This release is similar to RC2 and RC1 which are released to find any late-breaking bugs. This will probably be the last release candidate before 1.7 final comes out. 1.7 as you might know is replacing the 1.4 as the stable branch, and is being used for the Firefox 1.0 milestone." The Mozilla 1.7 RC 3 Release Notes are available, and downloads can be found on the releases page and the mozilla1.7rc3 directory on ftp.mozilla.org.

If you have installed Microsoft corefont, it's pretty nice to browse the web in gtk1 Mozilla _without_ alternating other parts of the X11/fontconfig system in anti-aliased mode.

You can make gtk1 UI look good with the following trick.

How-To: Modifying UI font of gtk1 and gtk2 application <http://www.linuxcompatible.org/thread27498-1.html>

Although I agree GTK-2.x will replace GTK-1.x eventually, there are quite a few applications still using gtk1 widget: such as XMMS, the older version of Grip, and wxWidget 2.4 binding to gtk1 such as Audacity.
