Kirix Strata Beta 4 Now Available

Monday, September 24th, 2007

It's been a few weeks since our last beta release, but the time has been spent well. We've focused on fixing a wide-ranging number of annoying bugs; the new Beta 4 is available for download now.

Here are a sampling of features and bug fixes that have made their way into this latest version:

  • ATOM Support as suggested in this forum post
  • A bunch of RSS compatibility fixes
  • SQL compatibility updates
  • Scripting now includes a DOM API subset
  • Lots of keyboard navigation work
  • The structure editor view now allows field reordering
  • Strata can now handle websites with unsigned certificates
  • mailto: links handled properly as reported in this forum post
  • Tons of other bug fixes, including the notorious appmain shutdown zombie

Keep the bug reports and suggestions a-comin'. Thanks!
