Camino is an open source web browser developed with a focus on providing the best possible experience for Mac OS X users.

—Camino Project mission statement


After every major release, the Camino Project collectively plans the features that will be added or improved in the next release. These development priorities are communicated to the public via this document, the Camino Roadmap.

This roadmap is a look at where Camino is headed over the next year, including major new releases and security releases for current versions of Camino. The roadmap for 2010 can be found here.

Contents

Camino 2.0.x

Camino 2.0.x releases are security and stability updates for Camino 2.0 code and come from the CAMINO_2_0_BRANCH. In general, no new features will be added to these releases; changes allowed include those involving stability, security, localization, and regressions from earlier 2.0.x releases.

The current release in this series is Camino 2.0.9, which was released on September 14, 2011.

To nominate bugs for the next security/stability release, simply flag them in Bugzilla as "camino2.0.10?". These bugs should either be regressions from a previous Camino 2.0.x release or serious bugs that exist in 2.0.x builds.

Camino 2.1

Camino 2.1 will be a small new release based on Gecko 1.9.2. Camino 2.1 will have a small number of high-impact improvements in the overall browsing experience, including improved location bar autocomplete.

The first preview, Camino 2.1 Alpha 1, was released on January 20, 2011; the second preview, Camino 2.1 Beta 1, was released on August 1, 2011; third preview, Camino 2.1 Beta 2, was released on September 9, 2011; and Camino 2.1 was released on November 29, 2011.

Camino 2.1.x

Camino 2.1.x releases are security and stability updates for Camino 2.1 code. In general, no new features will be added to these releases; changes allowed include those involving stability, security, localization, and regressions from earlier 2.1.x releases. However, general bug-fixes and some minor features (AppleScript enhancements) are currently being allowed in Camino 2.1.x releases.

The current release in this series is Camino 2.1.2, which was released on March 14, 2012.

To nominate bugs for the next security/stability release, simply flag them in Bugzilla as "camino2.1.3?". These bugs should either be regressions from a previous Camino 2.1.x release or serious bugs that exist in 2.1.x builds.

Tentative Schedule

Camino releases have always been feature- and quality-driven, not dictated by dates. What follows are rough estimates for the dates of next major releases.

We hope to deliver Camino 2.1 in mid-2011; at the moment other development plans are too far in the future to provide reasonable estimates for a date for a subsequent release.
