All official Linux builds are now gtk2+xft, so I'm going to omit the phrase "gtk2+xft" from build descriptions from now on.

Firefox 0.9 is out!

MozillaZine: Mozilla Firefox 0.9 Released.

Download using HTTP or download using BitTorrent.

If you've been following the trunk with The Burning Edge, the interesting things about 0.9 are:

  • A new default theme, Winstripe.
  • Theme/extension managers that actually work.
  • Increased stability from being on a branch.

If you're coming from 0.8, or if you want to be reminded of the big improvements between 0.8 and 0.9, read the release notes or the bigger picture.

In addition to 0.9, there is also a new official site for Firefox themes and extensions, update.mozilla.org.

Firefox 0.9 coming soon

Firefox 0.9 will be released soon from the Aviary branch, which is not the same as the 1.7 branch.

Neil Turner's Firefox 0.9 tour with screenshots.

Draft of 0.9 release notes.

The Burning Edge's Bigger Picture: What's new in 0.9. This list is more detailed than the release notes, but less detailed than daily Burning Edge posts.

The branch has a new theme, Winstripe, which has not yet been checked in on the trunk. It also has a different version of the theme and extension manager than on the trunk.
