About Camino 1.0 Release Candidate 1

Camino 1.0 Release Candidate 1 brings you a heavily-updated version of the only native Mac OS X browser using Mozilla's Gecko rendering engine. This version incorporates many new features and improvements to existing features. Numerous bugs and performance problems have also been resolved.

This version of Camino is close to its final shipping state. It is a high-quality release and represents a significant improvement over Camino 0.8.4. The goal of this release is to provide the opportunity to report major problems before a final version of 1.0 is released.

Camino 1.0 Release Candidate 1 reaps the benefits of many of the improvements made in Firefox 1.5. Both products are based on the same codebase, the Mozilla 1.8.0 CVS branch, which provides a stronger, more stable, and more secure foundation than any previous version.

Due to changes in the feature set, Camino no longer supports Mac OS X 10.1. Those running that version of Mac OS X are encouraged to use Camino 0.8.4.
