M11 is out!

Tuesday November 16th, 1999

M11 binaries are now available on the ftp server in Win32, Linux, and Mac flavors, with more to come.

Things new in this release:

  • New name (mozilla, not apprunner)
  • The new chrome
  • rginda's Chatzilla IRC client enabled (see the Chatzilla page for info on how to test it out)
  • Incremental reflow - still a work in progress, but pages now display as the content comes in and no longer wait for closing tags
Check out the release notes for more.

Yes, the PowerPC processors are RISC processors, and I have noticed that a Mac version of a program will be a tad bigger than the PC version, but we're talking about a 4 meg difference here, which isn't a tad.

This is coming from a guy with crude understanding but doesn't RISC reduce the instructions required on the processor by using a base amount of instructions, and the rest is created on the fly by combining the base instructions, so it's still all hardware. Well I read this in an article years ago and not sure if I remember it correctly or if it might be false.
