Changes in 1.0 alpha 1 since 0.9 alpha 2
  • Significant new features and improvements
    • Drawing speed on pages with multiple animations is much improved, as is typing speed on many pages.
    • Camino now has certificate management capabilities.
    • Camino now saves the list of downloads between sessions. Downloads can be paused and resumed.
    • Ad-blocking is much improved, no longer requires a restart, and does not interfere with userContent.css.
    • Camino now has a preference to limit image animations.
  • New features
    • On first launch Camino will ask if you wish to set it as the default browser (which can be turned off).
    • The location sheet now supports autocompletion and bookmark keywords just like the main location bar.
    • You can choose page header/footer configuration when printing now (in the Camino section of the print dialog).
    • Print orientation and other page setup details are now correctly remembered between runs.
    • Double-clicking on tab bar background now creates a new foreground tab.
    • Improved behavior when opening multiple items in tabs, and opening tabs from external applications.
    • The about:config preference editor works better.
    • Security-related features
      • Certificate-related dialogs have been improved, and now show the details of the certificate in question
      • It is now possible to trust a new Certificate Authority, and create certificates.
      • You can view the set of certificates that Camino ships with, and any that you have downloaded, in the Certificates window accessible from the Security preferences panel.
  • Bookmarks
    • Custom favorite icons are now shown for Bookmarks, History, and local files.
    • Fixed the window title when viewing Bookmarks and History.
    • Bookmarking a URL with a relative anchor works correctly now.
    • New bookmark folders, and pasted items, are now created after the selected item in the Bookmarks view.
    • Added Command+Shift+N shortcut for creating a new bookmark folder.
    • Fixed a potential crash when dragging a bookmark to the bookmark bar.
    • When the bookmark title for a linked image is empty, we now use the URL.
    • Fixed some problems in the bookmark bar when deleting certain items (like the dock menu folder).
    • The bookmarks splitter location is saved now.
    • Bookmark folder expanded states are now saved correctly.
    • Dragging multiple items from the history view works now.
    • The Export Bookmarks save dialog now has the 'Show/Hide Extension' checkbox.
  • Download manager
    • The list of downloaded files is now saved on quit, so that downloads from previous sessions are preserved.
    • You can now pause and resume a download now.
    • Destructive toolbar actions are now disabled when the downloads window is not active.
    • Long text in a download instance is now truncated.
  • Preferences
    • Added a preference to control image animations.
    • We now read Proxy Auto-Config (PAC) settings from the System Preferences .
    • We added a new hidden preference, "camino.use_system_proxy_settings" which affects whether we read the proxy settings from the OS at all. Setting this to "false" allows you to specify you own proxy settings using hidden preferences.
    • Logging of CSS and JavaScript errors in the Console is now off by default.
    • Fixed some issues when editing cookies and permissions, related to filtering and removing items.
    • The "Use system Home Page" checkbox has been removed, and the home page is no longer read from Internet Config.

    • Pages with repeating background images now draw much more quickly.
    • Startup is much faster now with big bookmark collections.
  • Plugins
    • Camino now ships with the Java Embedding Plugin (http://javaplugin.sourceforge.net/), which provides support for Java 1.4 (Java 5.0 on Mac OS X 10.4). This fixes many Java issues.
    • Control-clicking on a plugin shows the plugin's context menu now.
    • Scrolling with the scroll wheel now works for plugins that handle it.

    • Implemented "Use selection for find" for finding things on pages.
    • New windows now tile with the correct offset.
    • Click-holding on the back/forward buttons now drops down the history menus more promptly.
    • When saving a webpage as plain text, we now properly attach the .txt extension to it.
    • When hitting Return in an empty location bar, we now keep focus in the location bar.
    • We now hide the scrollbar when a popup is opened without the scrollbar flag.
    • The user can now show/hide the toolbar and bookmark bar in a popup window (making the location visible)
  • Installation
    • A license agreement is presented when mounting the disk image now.
  • Localization
