Mozilla 1.4 was released June 30th, right along with Netscape 7.1. It’s a beautiful thing. Along with many other features, we got
about:config, which allows you to tweak out a variety of hidden settings, as well as support for
about:config allows you to mess with all sorts of nifty things, like enabling
timebomb.first_launch_time, whatever that is. Supposedly, Gecko 1.4’s ability to understand ActiveX objects is limited to Windows Media Player. I haven’t had any time to test yet, but I’m hoping it supports other plug-ins as well. I’m sure it doesn’t support Windows Scripting Host, but who says it never will?
On the other end, 1.4 is replacing 1.0 as the stable branch for Gecko. This is great, as much has changed in the last year since Mozilla 1.0 came out. 1.4 also marks the end of the SeaMonkey project in favor of the Firebird project focused around the former “Phoenix” project.
