DEER PARK ALPHA 2

Deer Park Alpha 2 was released on 2005-07-12.

This release is the second release in the Deer Park product development cycle. It includes all major and significant features, whether pref'd on or off in order to achieve wider testing and to solicit quality feedback. The quality standard of this release is pre-production and therefore it should be of the quality required to support testing, and for extension, theme and web application developers to begin compatibility and feature testing in advance of Firefox 1.5. It may break some but not all 1.0+ targeted Extensions. It should not contain any significant known crashers.
