Camino 2.1 Release Notes

Camino 2.1 is no longer the current release. Please download the latest stable release.

After over a year of hard work by devoted volunteers, the Camino Project is proud to give you Camino 2.1. This latest version includes many bug fixes and new features, providing all users with an improved browsing experience.

This release displays web pages with Gecko 1.9.2, the same rendering engine used by the popular Firefox 3.6 web browser, improving web compatibility and sharing many of the security fixes and Gecko improvements that are in that version of Firefox.

The features listed below are just some of the many changes in Camino 2.1.

Camino 2.1 is available for Mac OS X 10.4 and later.

Features in Camino 2.1

The following are the major changes and improvements made since the Camino 2.0 release. A full list of features and fixes is also available.

Web content support

Camino now uses version 1.9.2 of Mozilla’s Gecko rendering engine, which contains thousands of bug fixes, enhanced support for web standards, and improved JavaScript performance.

Enhanced location bar autocomplete

A completely rewritten autocomplete now searches both bookmarks and history and matches against page titles as well as page URLs.

Changes to plug-in support

Camino now disables certain insecure or incompatible versions of common plug-ins.

A new “Internet Plug-Ins” folder in the profile allows for Camino-only plug-ins.

A new hidden preference allows disabling specific plug-ins.

Camino no longer includes a Java plug-in; users who need to run Java applets should install Java Plug-In 2 or the Java Embedding Plugin, as appropriate for the version of Mac OS X in use.

Offline mode

New “Work Offline” and “Go Online” items in the “Camino” menu allow Camino to enter offline mode and provide a more useful experience when no network connection is available.

Status Bar

The status bar can now be hidden by choosing “Hide Status Bar” in “View” menu.
