XML News from Friday, February 9, 2007

The Mozilla Project has posted the second alpha of Firefox 3.0 for Mac, Linux, and Windows. This release should be ACID2 compliant for the first time, though I haven't yet tested it. It also implements the Web Apps 1.0 API for changing stylesheets and supports CSS 2.1's inline-blocks and inline-tables. Furthermore, "XML documents can now be rendered as they're downloaded instead of only after the full document has been loaded." JavaScript and DOM are also more standard. Windows 2000 or later and Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later or Linux are required. Windows 98 and earlier and Mac OS X 10.2 and earlier are no longer supported. Final release is not expected for another year.
