• [VOICENWS] SW: Firefox 17.0.5 for eCS (OS/2) Beta

    From VOICE News Service@1:3634/1000 to All on Tuesday, November 05, 2013 08:10:47

    ++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

    "This is the first public release of Firefox for eCS (OS/2) since quite an outdated version 10.0.12 (released January, 2013). The major change in this release (compared to 10.x) is implementation of eCS (OS/2)-specific parts for the new IPC mechanism which is used for the Content Processes feature (that allows to run plugins in separate processes to improve browser stability and performance).

    This is a beta release meaning that not all functions work properly."

    So please bear that in mind if and how you decide to test this.

    See the web page for notes, downloads and requirements.
