We are delighted to announce that BrowserPlus 2.2.0 is now live at browserplus.yahoo.com. Yes, we pushed on a Friday. Again.
Here's a brief summary of some of the highlights of this release:
2) I18n and L10n Using Yahoo's amazing localization resources, we have currently localized the platform into 13 languages and 30 locales. The localization applies to our Installer, Permissions dialogs, and Configuration Panel.
Seeing is believing:
We use IDNA to handle non-ascii domain names. We display dates and times in a locale-respectful manner in the Config Panel.
All of this is based on detection of the user's locale, and falling back to appropriate parent locales when necessary.
3) Services in their own process As mentioned in a previous blog post, BrowserPlus Services now run in their own process. This enhances the stability of the platform, and also aids in debugging when you're writing a service.
4) It's Shrinkage! We are now exploiting LZMA compression in our packaging and are seeing great improvement in the delivery size of the platform and services.
