It's chemspill mania!

The bug repaired in 16.0.1 and 10.0.9 inspired people to go meddling around in that section of code and, of course, more potential problems were found. Both 10.x and 16.x (and, by extension, 17.x) are affected, so there will be a 10.0.10 coming out probably on Friday or Saturday, and 10.0.11 will be the final release for 10.x. Maybe.

Though I ordinarily don't respin betas, the issues involved have some nasty knock-on effects and I really want users testing 17 before it becomes final, so I will probably respin the 17 beta and also pick up any new fixes early next week. Users of AuroraFox will need to inquire with Tobias; the faulty code is present in both 17 and 18. SeaMonkeyPPC users are also affected.


  1. when do you think 11.x will be out?

  2. We already released an 11.0 very early on. If you're asking about 17.0, which is the next stable release, you can try the beta now. However, it might be better to wait a few days to deal with the security issue fixed by 10.0.10.
