Late Wednesday, the Camino Project released version 2.1.1 of Camino, its free, open source web browser.
The new version, an 18.5 megabyte download, adds the following fixes and changes:
- Upgraded to version 188.8.131.52 of the Mozilla Gecko rendering engine, which includes several critical security and stability fixes.
- Blocked versions of Adobe Flash Player 10 older than 10.3.183.15 and Flash Player 11 older than 184.108.40.206 on Intel Macs due to severe security issues.
- Tweaked the autocomplete algorithm to reduce the weight of visit count.
Added a hidden preference to allow turning off autocomplete’s use of page titles in matches.
- The location sheet once again shows an autocomplete window.
- It is now possible to clear the “Recently Closed Pages” menu with the “Clear History…” menu item even when history is disabled.
- Improved the appearance of the bookmark toolbar in background windows on Mac OS X 10.7.
- On Mac OS X 10.7, Camino now appears in the “Productivity” category when sorting Finder windows by category.
- Camino now correctly checks for the presence of a Java plug-in on Mac OS X 10.7.
- The “open location” AppleScript command now supports optional “referrer” and “loading in background” parameters.
- Camino will now display an error message when the “open location” command’s direct parameter is empty or missing.
- A new “reload” command allows AppleScripts to reload browser windows and tabs.
- The status of Camino’s offline mode is now available to AppleScript, and scripts can toggle offline mode on and off using the application object’s “online” property.
- The AppleScript “visit count” bookmark property once again works correctly.
- Pressing Escape will now cancel Tab Overview.
- “Fill Form” no longer fills disabled hidden form controls.
- The “Block Flash animations” checkbox is no longer enabled if Flash is not installed.
- Camino now correctly resolves Bonjour services that do not include an initial forward slash in their “path” information.
Camino 2.1.1 requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later to run.
