Deer Park (codename for Mozilla Firefox 1.1) Alpha 2 Candidate Builds
By Asa Dotzler:
We now have a round of builds that are very close to what we will shortly release as Deer Park Alpha 2.
These candidate builds are now available for testing for each of Windows, Mac and Linux — with l10n builds to follow shortly. Please note that for our alpha releases there are feature and polish issues that have not yet been completely worked out. We release these milestones to get the core code out to our community to test out major Gecko and platform changes as soon as possible. If these test out well, we'll be shipping Deer Park Alpha 2 shortly.
This will be second alpha in the Deer Park product development cycle and will include all major and significant features, whether pref'd on or off in order to achieve wider testing and to solicit quality feedback. The quality standard for this release is pre-production and therefore it should be of the quality required to support testing, and for Extension, theme and web application developers to begin compatibility and feature testing in advance of Firefox 1.1. It may break some but not all 1.0+ targeted Extensions. It should not contain any significant and known crashers.
Deer Park intentionally uses a codename rather than the Mozilla Firefox branding to dissuade end-users from downloading the preview (an end-user beta will be available closer to the final 1.1 release).
Download: Windows | Linux | Mac OS X
