Mozilla Firefox 3.0.6

Posted in Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Solaris, Web Apps, Windows

All of us might be waiting for the newest version of Mozilla Firefox to be released, however it still does not beat the current stable (official) version of Firefox 3.0.6. The main reason is that there are still plugins that are currently not supported by the latest version of Firefox 3.1.x.

Firefox is one of the most popular web browsers, commonly used by computer users in the world. I guess it needs no introduction. Generally, the following are the changes in this version:

  • # Fixed several security issues.
  • # Fixed several stability issues.
  • # In previous versions of Firefox, some users experienced a problem where parts of the screen were not properly displaying after Firefox was open for long periods of time.
  • # Improved the ability for scripted commands (including those included in popular extensions like Adblock Plus) to work properly with plugins.
  • # Removed the client user ID from crash reports.
  • # Fixed issues with the display of some Indic scripts.

WordPress 2.7.1 RC 1 Released

Posted in Beta, Business Software, Fun Stuff, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Software Companies, Solaris, Web Apps, Windows

Ryan Boren’s email has revealed that WordPress 2.7.1 RC 1 is made available to the public. This was announced earlier than expected, as the release is still not announced formally at the main page of WordPress. Based on the information, the following issues have been fixed:

  • * URL column in Edit Links removes www. from domains that end in www
  • * Theme preview fails when theme in subdirectory
  • * “Draft Saved” current_time not reflecting timezone setting in the edit area
  • * Revisions do not respect time zone offset
  • * Canonical redirect of feed URLs with suffixes is wrong
  • * index.php file in the plugins folder makes the Dashboard fail

In spite of this, WordPress users are still unable to utilise the Upgrade functionality on the WordPress software to automatically upgrade to this release candidate version. However, it isn’t too bad either, to just wait a couple more days for the final (stable) version to be available.

However, if you still bend on getting your hands onto the latest release, you can download from the link below. Just note that, it is important to avoid deploying on production machines.
