Firefox Released

Interesting update with security features.

July 18th, 2007 at 5:00am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Software Updates

A new version of Firefox was released last night and fixed some security issues that no one seems to take the heat for, but the Mozilla foundation seems to be stepping up and fixing the problem.

The update will automatically update your Firefox, which may cause some problems.

Problems in the sense that most of my add-ons are incompatible with the new version of Firefox and since I've already updated, I'm already having problems with my status bar and weather updates.

The newest update to MythDora has been released.

December 15th, 2006 at 7:30am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Software Updates

For those who followed my post on How to create your own TiVo, MythDora 3.0 was updated this week to version 3.1 (there was a bug in 3.0) and the version of MythTV included is 0.20, the latest and greatest.

I'll be looking into upgrading my version to 3.1 this weekend, but I wonder if it will be easy enough to go to MythDora Tools and just select Update.

My guess is no. :-)

Thunderbird Released!

Mozilla's Thunderbird has been released with some interesting features.

April 20th, 2006 at 4:15am — Comments: (0) — By: Jonathan Danylko — Tags: Software Updates

Is everyone using Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird? I'm personally using Thunderbird.

Mozilla Thunderbird has been released with the following features (Taken directly from the Mozilla site):

  • Automated update to streamline product upgrades. Notification of an update is more prominent, and updates to Thunderbird may now be half a megabyte or smaller. Updating extensions has also improved.
  • Sort address autocomplete results by how often you send e-mail to each recipient.
  • Spell check as you type.
  • Saved Search Folders can now search across multiple accounts.
  • Built in phishing detector to help protect users against email scams.
  • Podcasting and other RSS Improvements.
  • Deleting attachments from messages.
  • Integration with server side spam filtering.
  • Reply and forward actions for message filters.
  • Kerberos Authentication.
  • Auto save as draft for mail composition.
  • Message aging.
  • Filters for Global Inbox.
  • Improvements to product usability including redesigned options interface, and SMTP server management.
  • Many security enhancements.

The key items I'm looking at are the Podcasting, Kerberos Authentication, and the built-in phishing detector.
