I know Camino development is driven by bug fixes and new features as opposed to dates, so I was curious what kind of new features and bug fixes we might be expecting in upcoming builds! :)

- Midas support
- Spell check (not just yet)
- Tab re-ordering
- Improved preference UI and options
- Bookmark manager in a tab or window

And ofcourse countless other small improvements.

Ooh cool thanks :D

Hmm, any future plans to change toolbar bookmark behavior? <_<

I think that's somewhere on the list, but I'm not sure exactly when.

What changes specifically? There are some new patches (still waiting for review) that would improve bookmark toolbar drag-and-drop behavior.

Oh um, ideally (for me at least) toolbar bookmark behavior like Firefox's, in which it acts like the Finder menubar. But I think japser said that would require a lot of programming and that no one was doing it...

But at least, maybe a less sensitive bookmark toolbar? I'm sure this has been mentioned before, where people accidentally drag the bookmark folder from the toolbar into the content area and it opens all the links in tabs. Unless this is done on purpose?

In fact, I can open a bookmark folder in the toolbar, then close it, then go to the menubar and open up a menu, click below the menu and drag down a little bit (as if I am trying to click out of the menu), and doing so will drag down the last opened bookmark folder in the toolbar, resulting in all the links opening up.

That sounds like bug 201898.

Ya pretty much. I'm not really referring to the original bug (though that can be a problem as well), though they mention what I'm talking about farther down. But I don't think anyone mentioned reproducing this through the actual menu bar at the very top of your screen after having opened and closed the bookmark folder.

Any chance the favicons will be moved out of the cache?

Today we finally gained the support for Midas, an inline Rich text editor for webpages. We also have a variety of bookmark bar fixes ligned up that should be checked in any day now. Also the support for importing Ominweb 5 bookmark files will be comming ever soon.

The team is also looking into the regression regarding scroll speed, which was most likely caused by a change made to gecko (the mozilla render engine).

So all in all it's going very well.

Kudos on the Midas support. My employer uses an inline editor for their CMS, and since it works in Firefox, I've been hoping for a compatible Camino release.

Josh today checked in a fix for the notorious "Too Easy to accidently drag Toolbar Bookmark folders" bug that together with the check in for some drag and drop fixes should really make a difference in nicely organisizng the bookmark bar as of today.

Bug 201898 - Too Easy to accidently drag Toolbar Bookmark folders
Bug 171852 - Cannot drop dragged bookmark between two folders on Bookmarks Toolbar

There are people looking into the scrolling bug but as far as I know a fix isn't close yet :(
