Riding along with the 17 beta will be a prospective blacklist on Type 1 PostScript fonts, which Chris and one of our users demonstrated don't work with Harfbuzz and may be the underlying cause of this Tenderapp issue and this Tenderapp issue. However, I have a remarkably small amount of replies from users for whom this was allegedly a crippling issue. It would really help me if those of you affected would chime in and say if you see the same thing, because the fixes are shots in the dark as I have not been able to replicate them on my internal test systems. The specific workarounds for Arial, Helvetica and Times will stay in, just in case.
10.0.8 was made official Monday night, btw. Remember, 10.0.9 will be the last 10.x release.
In other news, 16.0.1 will probably be the last official Firefox release supporting 10.5 ("adieu, spotted cat"), assuming no further chemspills. For those of you still making PPC builds directly from source without modification, that will break when 17 comes out, including the current incarnation of SeaMonkey PPC.
