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.

Bugzilla has some interesting comments on the reflow bug (follow the link above). I'm experiencing the same thing on my own M11-win32 copy, and it sounds to me like reducing the number of reflow calls overall will speed up page loading.

But personally I think the reflow idea is wonderful, even if it is at the moment imposing a high-speed penalty.

I love the chrome, and I really love the layout engine. There's still lots of work to be done on them, but don't take them out!

Implementing reflow fixes the one biggest annoyance in Navigator: not seeing any table content until the entire table and all images without height/width tags are loaded first. Now I have no reason at all to use IE!
