Mozilla releases Firefox 3.7 Alpha 3 developer preview
Following the second alpha earlier this month, Mozilla has announced the availability of the third Firefox 4.0 preview, labelled "3.7 Alpha 3", a developer preview of its latest Gecko web rendering platform build. The developer milestone is based on version 1.9.3 alpha of the Gecko rendering engine – Firefox 3.6 uses Gecko 1.9.2 – and includes a number of changes and new features.
As with all development releases, use in production environments and on mission critical systems is not advised. Users testing the release are encouraged to provide feedback and report any bugs that they encounter.
More details about the release can be found in the release notes. Firefox 3.7 Alpha 3 is available to download for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X 10.5 or later. Firefox binaries are released under the Mozilla Firefox End-User Software License Agreement and the source code is released under disjunctive tri-licensing that includes the Mozilla Public Licence, GPLv2 and LGPLv2.1. The latest stable releases of Firefox are version 3.0.18 and 3.5.8 from mid-February and Firefox 3.6 from January.
