[Request] Updated engines for previous versions

Post by Climhazard » Fri Jul 12, 2013 7:54 am

As we all know latest 2013 versions are still not stable (many bugs that aren't and "cannot be fixed") and have multiple missing features that are available in previous versions. I have waited eagerly for a month to see whats new update 109 is going to bring, but only 2 minor fixes per month isn't really worth the wait. Therefore 2013 builds are not usable for me and possibly many more older users, and an engine update for either 2012 build 197 or 2013 build 23 would be really helpful until newer versions are sorted out.

Could you please provide updated gecko and webkit engines for older versions in any form possible? It would be good to see engine update each month together with a new build made, for the sake of keeping both old and new version user base.

Latest compatible version with older versions for gecko was 20.0.1.4863 taken from Avant 2013 Build 107
Latest compatible version for webkit was 26.0.1410.64 also taken from Avant Build 107

Starting from 2013 build 108 engines are no longer compatible with older versions.

Both mbrazil & I have previously made this same request. Perhaps third time will be the charm ...

Sorry, i didn't see it posted. Then i guess this request is lost cause too.

I can only hope some of these requests will be fulfilled, and not just recorded (discarded) for version 2033. That reminds me, i have never seen any of requests actually getting accepted or make it into some build...

Well... there's still time till Avant 2033...

I have told your suggestion to the developer yestoday. He said he will mainly consider these(sidebar,window title bar.customize buttons etc.) in later builds. As to the final result, it's still unkown till now.
