Opera Dragonfly open for business

,----[ Quote ]
| Since the inception of Opera Dragonfly, we 
| planned for it to become an open source 
| project. It has always been released under 
| an open source BSD licence, but the source 
| repositories were on Opera servers. 
| Starting today, Opera Dragonfly is a fully 
| open source project, hosted on BitBucket. 
| Since the previous version of Opera 
| Dragonfly, a lot of work has gone on behind 
| the scenes replacing the existing 
| architecture with a modern version of the 
| Scope Protocol â STP-1. Opera Dragonfly has 
| been rewritten to use this faster and more 
| efficient version of Scope. Now that we 
| believe that the underlying protocol is 
| stable and performant, and a public desktop 
| build has been released with this included, 
| it is time to put Opera Dragonfly on a 
| public Mercurial repository.


Firefox Turning Into A Multi-Browser 

,----[ Quote ]
| In an upcoming version, Firefox will be a 
| multiprocessing browser. The developers of 
| Firefox at Mozilla are preparing for one of 
| the most important changes in the history 
| of this browser. It will not be the version 
| of Firefox 3.5 which will make the Firefox 
| browser a multithreaded one. But it is 
| expected to be so in any of the following 
| versions, such as version 3.6, which we 
| have already spoken of. Or in version 4.0 
| Firefox can become a multi-browser. For 
| those of you who do not know what a 
| multithreaded browser means, you can keep 
| an eye on the post explaining what a multi-
| browser is all about.


WordPress Mobile now available, free and open source, for BlackBerry, Android and iPhone; Nokia soon!

,----[ Quote ]
| WordPress, the gold standard in blogging 
| platforms, has just announced that they now 
| have WordPress applications for RIMâs 
| BlackBerry (NSDQ: RIMM) platform, Google 
| (NSDQ: GOOG)âs Android, and the iPhone. 
| Theyâre all free, and theyâre all open 
| source, so the community can help make them 
| better. Theyâve also announced that in a 
| few weeks theyâll be playing with Qt and 
| releasing a beta for not only Nokia (NYSE: 
| NOK)âs Symbian platform, but the Linux 
| based Maemo too.



Opera 10.50 Alpha

,----[ Quote ]
| The people at Opera Labs are being very
| careful with this release, and taking much
| time before going so far as to call a
| delivered product a beta. Another build, 3199,
| has been released as  alpha, dropping the pre-
| from the moniker.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
