    Quite some bugs are fixed and have patches that are not checked in. E.g. 256072 and 256007. Why is this??

    Do these builds show up as 0.9.3? I thought (after reading your FAQ) that the Trunk builds get more code, so I installed a nightly and it was still showing 0.9.1, so I’ve gone back to the 0.9.3 release.

    Branch nightlies show up as “0.9.1+”, but they’re newer than 0.9.3 in every way.

    I’m relying on this, it seems to summarize what’s what:

    Aviary is going to be the basis for the eventual OSX v1.0, and that’s linked to this:

    What I get downloading, I get this:
    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040819 Firefox/0.9.1+

    Izzat right?

  5. Hank Says:

    Oh, my head. As I said, I followed the link here:


    It tells me to get the Aviary nightly, and the word “Aviary” is hyperlinked to here:


    Okay, but what’s in “~nightly/latest-0.9/” identifies itself as:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040819 Firefox/0.9.1+

    So, I wonder, and I go back and look. Yes, that did come out of “~nightly/latest-0.9/”

    From there I go to the parent directory, and find, Lo, there is an adjacent “~nightly/latest-0.9.1” but the file in there is old, old, old.

    Some get as far as finding bugs in the software; my contribution so far is limited to finding problems with the published instructions available for people to FIND the software. Well, it’s something, I hope.
