Camino 1.5? Oh yes!

I wanted to let everyone know about a little change we've made recently to our version number for the next release. Camino 1.0 was a very long time ago (too long) and for those who have been using nightly builds for ages, it's easy to forget just how many features we've added for our next version:

  • spell checking with suggestions
  • single window mode
  • improved popup blocking
  • flash and plugin blocking
  • session saving
  • keychain interop with Safari
  • RSS feed detection
  • tab jumpback
  • resizable search field
  • custom profiles
  • ...and much much much more!

Whew! That's just off the top of my head too! When you stop and look at that list, it hardly seems like a small effort. Personally, I don't think calling it Camino 1.1 does it justice, it's more like a 1.5, so that's exactly what we've done. In the next week or two, we'll be releasing Release Candidates of Camino 1.5, with hopes of shipping the final version this month.

I think everyone will be impressed with the improvements we've made to the usability and usefulness of the product while maintaining the stability, speed, and web compatibility people have come to take for granted. I'm impressed by the team's efforts and I can't wait to get this in users' hands. Great job to everyone involved!
