XML News from Saturday, October 8, 2005

The Mozilla Project has posted the second beta of Firefox 1.5. The automatic update classifies this as Firefox 1.4.1. New features in 1.5 for XML developers include:

Other new features in 1.5 include:

" This release does not contain any major new features since Beta 1. Improvements to automated update system, Web site rendering and performance, along with several security fixes are included in this release Beta 1 users that want to help test software update, should wait for the automatic update to be triggered sometime in the next few days. The incremental update from Beta 1 to Beta 2 is 700K bytes." I've been using this version since the alpha 2 release a few months ago. It feels a little slower than 1.0 but otherwise has been quite stable.
