Firefox 3.1 coming soon? Sniffing out the bugs
Developers working on the next version of Firefox aim to release a beta to the public in August.
The project team has set a date of 19 August to freeze features and make the test version of Firefox 3.1 available, according to a calendar posting to the Mozilla wiki. However, the posting notes the date is an estimate.
Expected new features in Firefox 3.1 include native support for the open-source Ogg Vorbis audio codec and the Ogg Theora video codec, according to a draft list posted to the wiki. The inclusion of the open-source formats accompanies support for HTML5 in the browser, which will mean Firefox 3.1 will work with audio and video HTML tags.
