Cheers to everybody (and there were many) who sent me notes over the past few days, while I was furiously building and rebuilding the Ubuntu GTK1.2 Remix, about the release of Dillo-2.0. Thanks very much for thinking of me.
In fact, I caught it the day after it was released, and got my hands on the .deb files that someone built off this page. And, surprise surprise, it looks a lot like Dillo “1″ … just a little … different.
But that’s a good thing, right? I mean, all the good parts are still in there: It’s incredibly fast, it renders sort of … close to intended, and the interface is much smoother now. And the download manager is very cool. And judging by the changelog, it’s not just the aesthetic that has been adjusted.
Personally I’m looking forward to more releases of this one. It’s a little scruffy around the edges right now, and of course, point-oh versions are always a little rocky, but I think this might take over on most of my machines, just for being both fast and attractive … for once.
And no, don’t look for it in Intrepid.
