Hello everyone! 5.5 is a much delayed release which is not as polished as I would have liked. Instead of delaying any further, I would appreciate you giving these experimental features a try and giving feedback on them.
- Allow ICMP ping replies so that you can check the machine is up and running.
- Allow for several homepages to be specified which get opened in separate tabs, e.g.
- noclutter added, which hides the mouse cursor after a couple of seconds of inactivity
- Several new experimental hooks to upgrade and setup CJK locales
- A new PDF viewer based on epdfview, which unlike
xpdfhas a decent printing dialog!
- Anything else? See

Experimental option to install Webconverger onto a hard drive
The included EXPERIMENTAL installer has problems. For example the USB version only seems to work when installing without a network due to some odd grub2 transition. The development cycles for debugging installer related issues is incredibly long and painful. The whole effort might have been a colossal waste of time, considering USB boots are just as fast as booting from a hard disk.
The next release will focus on packaging Firefox 3.5 and the kiosk extension for it.
