IE7 version 0.8 is now available for download. Please read the release notes before upgrading.
For this release, I’ve concentrated on improving performance (I hope that this is very noticeable). I’ve also gone to great lengths to ensure that IE7 is modular and extendable.
- support for
<object type="image/*">(now you too can be a markup wanker)
- limited support for DHTML
- more CSS3 selectors (
- dynamic attribute selectors (implementing this provided some funding for IE7)
And quite a bit more. View the IE7 compatibility page for a full feature list. Despite all the new features, IE7 remains pretty lightweight (23KB). This is largely due to the higher compression from my packing software.
I’d like to say thank you to all my regression testers. Any bugs that slipped through their diligent fingers can be reported on the IE7 forum.
This is the last big overhaul of IE7. Subsequent releases will be bug fixes only as IE7 moves towards a beta release.
