Default Phoenix 0.5 nightlies

Anyone using some of the most recent nightly builds of Phoenix? I haven't tried out any of them since December and am curious to see if there have been any major improvements. 0.6 should have been out last month, but I've seen nothing on it, only that it's still on the roadmap.

The overnight 0.5 builds are stable compared to the original 0.5 which was unstable, other than that there is the intergrated XP style skin.
Maybe even a few other fixes here and there.

Using a nightly from a while back, seems to work fine.

Heard 0.6 was due to come out very soon, though.

I had a few problems with the latest nightly on my home PC. The same build works fine on my work laptop, though. Probably a bunch of accumulated kibble in the prefs.js and/or skins, since it cleared up when I wiped my profile. And the very recent builds (late January and onward) fix the bug that was introduced shortly after 0.5 that broke skin/extension installation. The roadmap has 0.6 in Jan, 0.7 in Feb, but due to the number of bugs that will (obviously, since we haven't seen 'em yet) be pushed back...

Cheers,
JND

I want to be able to go back to a Moz-based browser, but the news posting system at ********* doesn't work with any browser but IE.

I love Avant Browser, but I think once Phoenix 0.6 hits the streets, I'll be taking a look at that.

Methinks though art pulling an ATI and smoking something hallucinogenic because there's no mention on the Mozilla site about Phoenix 0.6 or Moz 1.3 beta. And there's nothing on the FTP site either.

The last good linux build was on Jan 31. All new builds are buggy.

Ditto with all the Windows builds from the same date. For whatever reasons I can get 'em to work alright on my laptop (posting this with 20030211 on Win2k), but on my desktop it goes all wiggy. There's some info in the forums:

I think as long as you keep your old profile and don't customize the taskbar, you should be able to run more recent nightly builds.

Looks like they still have quite a few bugs to fix before 0.6 will ever see the light of day. I'll stick with Avant Browser for now.
