Releases:Release Notes 2.1

From Camino Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

These are the “running” or incremental release notes for Camino 2.1 (𝌙), i.e., the interesting bug-fixes since the last major release (e.g., 1.5) or milestone (e.g., Camino 1.6 Alpha 1). The actual release notes for major releases, milestones, or security releases can be found on the corresponding Releases:Ver:Notes page, e.g., Releases:1.6b1:Notes.

(Note that not all checkins are considered interesting; in particular, fixes for regressions that only occur between milestones, code cleanup, or build changes are not included in release notes.)
There are several pages that track "major" changes on the trunk. These could be useful when we create our final release notes. Firefox 3.6 for developers.

These running release notes (and the milestone release notes that are developed from them) form the "complete" changelog on the website (1.0, 1.5); the release notes for the final 2.0 release are a summary or short-form and can be found at Releases:2.0:Notes.

Release Notes for Camino 2.1b2 are at Releases:2.1b2:Notes (Release Notes for Camino 2.1b1 are at Releases:2.1b1:Notes, and notes for Camino 2.1a1 are at Releases:2.1a1:Notes).

These notes are for checkins after the release of Camino 2.1b2.
