If you are about to put out the new release, it might be an idea to
look at the build's ID, which right now is simply K-MELEON 0.9. In
Help >About there is a list of the main contributors. My suggestion is
to (at least consider) moving those contributors' names to the
K-MELEON 0.9 identification rectangle, right below the title, where
they are part of the main display.
I think you guys don't quite realize how much your general public
appreciates what you do, and what you have done. It is rather amusing
to me, as Firefox was the very opposite in its seemingly aggressive
arrogance. You folk are more modest than modest, and there would be no
harm in taking a slightly less inconspicuous bow.
Thank you all very much.

> o the year is 2005 (please check for 2004)
> o force reload (bypass both cach and proxy)
> o toggle offline stops navigation
> o all(?) prefs can be altered from plugins (such as macros)
> [this was part of the "unable to toggle offline" issue]
> o toolbar visibility can be toggled when toolbars are locked
> [from rc1 toolbar positions are never saved while locked]
> [they shouldn't move then anyway, but reports say they do?]
> o ALT+key accels for non-capitals (F&avorites and H&otlist)
> o Internal: click and dblclk messages for toolbars
> o open new layer by dubbel/middle click on the layers toolbar

> Release Tasks:
> We need to do the following in advance or as part of the 0.9 release:
> - Update the FAQ: http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php?id=FAQ
> I can work on that. Ulf has provided a list of major updates/features/fixes for
> 0.9 Let me know if you see anything in particular that should be added/removed
> from that page. I'll also be writing up some more info. on the Win9x section to
> address reports we've had from those users.
> - Update the Release Notes:
> I started this a while back. I'll work this into shape.
> - Write up a release announcement for various forums:
> We want to have a consistent announcement for the new release. Here's a short
> example from 0.8:
> We'll want to do something longer for other forums. Ulf suggested that we look
> at getting rid of some of the dated language and that we hit as many
> shareware/freeware sites as possible. If you would like to assist with posting
> to those locations, please let me know.
> - K-Meleon site pages:
> Various pages need to be updated to reflect the 0.9 release. I can work on
> that. If I miss anything, please let me know.
> - 0.9 Releases:
> Ulf: Ra requested we provide 0.9 in zip format in addition to the install EXE.
> Would that be possible? Also, could the final 0.9 version of the files get
> uploaded in CVS?
> That's it for now. Please let me know of tasks that I missed.
