After nearly a year in development (and six months later than planned) Mozilla has released Firefox 3.5 today! Many new exciting features for users and web developers:
Just Released Firefox 3.5RC3 – June 24, 2009 Schedule this Coming Week FIREFOX 3.5 – JUNE 30th Future Release Firefox 3.0.12 – July 21st
We mentioned earlier today about Firefox 3.5 RC3 Coming, it is now available for download. Whilst this may be as close to a final product, it is still a developmental version, therefore the usual disclaimer still applies: Please note: Firefox 3.5 RC3 is a public preview release intended for developer testing and community feedback. It includes many new features as well as improvements to performance, web compatibility, and speed. We recommend that you read the release notes and known issues before installing this release.

A very minor third and final RC is coming for Firefox 3.5 very soon. This RC includes retouches to the Firefox icon, localization corrections and a few performance tweaks. Due to the minor scope of this RC this should not have any effect on the final Firefox 3.5 release next week. Source: MozillaLinks

Took these photos last night. Click the photos below to see the full-size (3072×1728) The stormy (very little rain though, mostly virga) sky makes for a beautiful sunset. I do love the zoom feature on this camera. Odd, I don’t recall being able to see those palm trees from my front door. May be they are more noticeable since being trimmed and cleaned. These are the Palm Trees I usually photograph in my sunset shots. These are visible from my balcony.

With yesterday’s announcement on the Firefox 3.5 RC2 release, I was thinking I must have missed the announcement for RC1.
