If anyone's interested, I'm uploading nightly GTK2/XFT Linux/x86 builds of Firebird & Thunderbird, to:

http://rykros.ath.cx/~calum/mozilla/

The tar files are gzipped, about 11MB. Built with gcc-3.3 (glibc 2.3.1), so any C++ plugins (e.g. Sun's Java plugin) will need to be correspondingly built (e.g. the Sun plugin from SDK 1.4.2 beta). Non C++ plugins will work fine, of course.

There is, but I can't get it to do anything. There's also proxy settings under Options, but they don't seem to relate to anything.

oups must have illspoken here
I mean it's the first time I see the little lizard on the tabs u use to reduce/maximize ur windows on the taskbar
Before that there was only a white icon, like every other app when no icon is set.

proxy setings are still under "connexion", I don't need them here but at uni they used to work. not tested with this build yet.

Yup, I've seen the icon for a while...

As to my other points: I was stupidly referring to Thunderbird, which now has a big "M" mozilla icon on the main toolbar, but I can't get it to do anything.

Just uploading this morning's builds now; my nightly uploader failed, but that's now fixed. Builds will normally be uploaded around 0600 GMT.

Can you include xft/gtk2 builds of 0.6.1 as well?

sorry for this being OT - but I really apreciated the nightly *Mozilla* XFT builds there!

A big THANK YOU to you calum!

Since the last build is from July, 22nd, allow the question - will you continue to provide nightly builds? :)

It is a pity that Mozilla.org does not provide regular XFT by their own, since pages with XFT enabled Mozilla look incredibly much better (incidently, why? there must be much more different than just the anti-aliasing, no?).

Is there a good reason why they do not provide XFT builds? I never had a problem with them ...

Is SVG available in the main tree? I thought it required a branch, which I'm not tracking...
