We're happy to announce the release of <a href="http://beta.caminobrowser.org/">Camino 1.1a2</a>.

This release provides lots of features and bugfixes not present in Camino 1.1a1 (full list <a href="http://wiki.caminobrowser.org/Releases:1.1a2:Notes">here</a>), and is a major milestone on the road to Camino 1.1.

Please note that this release is not our stable version; <a href="http://www.caminobrowser.org/download/releases/1.0.3/">please download Camino 1.0.3</a> if you want a stable browsing experience. As such, make sure to backup your profile before using this release and report any bugs you find in your travels, specifically those in new features or those that are regressed from Camino 1.0.3 or Camino 1.1a1.

Also, because this isn't a final release, <b>please don't submit this release to MacUpdate, VersionTracker, or other such software trackers</b>. We want the majority of our user-base using the stable version of Camino.

<a href="http://beta.caminobrowser.org/">Get it while it's hot!</a>

About the session saving, the release notes say there is a preference for it... Is it accessible via Preferences or only the <code>user.js</code> file?

Cheers

So far, all is well. It is really fast too.

Right now, session saving has no GUI, but we're hopefully going to change that by the final release.

yeah, session saving requires user.js at the moment. Add the line

<code>user_pref("camino.remember_window_state", true);</code>

to ~/Library/Application Support/Camino/user.js (creating it as a plain-text file if it doesn't already exist)

Howdy,

Been following the nightly branch builds for quite a while; the trunk has been too unstable for my taste right now. I've noticed the following behavior for quite a while and it is there (saw it yesterday) in 1.1a2 (20070109 build).

I have the download window set to
Remove successful downloads: Upon completion
and
When downloads finish: Close Downloads window.

Occasionally, and I haven't been able to make head or tail of it, the Downloads Window stops closing upon download completion.

Outside of that minor annoyance the recent branch builds have been quite solid and fast. Camino has been my default browser for years now; since back in the Chimera days!.

Good Luck,
Herb Schulz

This includes both session saving after a normal quit and after a crash? Is there a way to enable it for only one case, either normal quit or crash?

So far, no issues. I've upgraded to Tiger (sort of a Christmas present for me), and Safari 2.0.4 doesn't feel nearly as fast as Camino 1.1a2.

Well, actually, one minor thing. I've noticed on Tiger that the rearmost window in Camino goes back to pinstripe-theme. What area might this issue fall under? I'd look, but after the last bug I reported, I think I'll ask here politely before firing up the Bugzilla account.

Looking sharp! Nice work, guys!

Crash protection is active at all times, but restore won't work unless the pref is set right now.

Expected Mac OS X behavior ;) Background unified windows get the same appearance as background normal windows.

Okey-fine. Got it. Thanks.

You guys ought to be really, really close to Camino 1.1 final. For the most part, Camino branch nightlies feel more stable than some other beta software I've used in the past. It's really a credit to those contributing code.

Liking 1.1a a lot -- thanks again to the developers. Still have issues with video on some sites like CNN.com, slow scrolling on ESPN.com. Firefox is rock solid playing video and scrolling, but ugly and un-Mac like. While I definitely understand that plug-ins and themes can't be made to work with Camino, it does seem like basic functionality and speed should be comparable(?). Is there hope of that in the near term, or more of long term thing?

Am wondering if there is an easy way to change the user agent so I can play video on MSNBC for example, which won't play on a browser it doesn't recognize. My understanding is that CamiTools no longer works?

Thanks again for the great work on Camino.

Fantastic release, devs! the two things I was really looking forward to have been added (safari-omniweb-camino all using the same keychain entries, and improved spell checking), and the browser seems faster in general.

I saw the .Mac bookmark sync slowed down and won't be in 1.1, but as soon as that's added I can't really imagine any 'general' feature I would want from a browser. Keep up the amazing work, guys!
