What’s New in Firefox 4:

Fastest Firefox Ever

Streamlined Interface

  • App Tabs: give a permanent home to frequently visited sites like Web mail, Twitter, Pandora, Flickr.

  • Firefox puts privacy first, fixing flaws in some Web standards to prevent others from accessing your browser history.
  • HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS): automatically establishes secure connections to stop "man in the middle" attacks and keep sensitive data safe from interception during the log-in process.
  • Content Security Policy (CSP): prevent cross-scripting attacks by allowing sites to explicitly tell the browser which content is legitimate.

Cutting Edge Tools for Web Developers:

  • The JavaScript engine incorporates the new JägerMonkey JIT compiler, along with enhancements to the existing TraceMonkey JIT and SpiderMonkey’s interpreter for faster page-load speed and better performance of Web apps and games.
  • HTML5 support in Firefox includes hardware accelerated, high-definition video (WebM), 3D graphics, offline data storage, professional typography, touchscreen interfaces and the Mozilla Audio API to help create visual experiences for sound and more.
  • Firefox 4 also improves existing tools like CSS, Canvas and SVG to enable developers to make exciting Web pages.
  • Firefox provides uninterrupted browsing when there is a crash in the Adobe Flash, Apple QuickTime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins. If one of these plugins crashes or freezes, it won’t affect the rest of Firefox. Simply reload the page to restart the plugin.

Gli sviluppatori di WordPress hanno rilasciato la terza release candidate di WordPress 3.1.

The biggest change is the removal of AJAX list tables, which had been an effort to move all of our list-style screens to full AJAX for pagination, searches, and column sorts, and to consolidate the list-style screens into a single API that plugins could leverage. Unfortunately, with more testing came realizations that there were too many major bugs and usability issues with how the functionality was implemented, so we’ve spent the last week rolling back the most important portions of the feature.

JDK 7 "ha raggiunto la fase successiva di sviluppo il 23 dicembre e può ormai essere considerata Feature Complete", anche se in ritardo rispetto ai tempi previsti e nonostante le polemiche che hanno accompagnato l'approvazione delle specifiche, è quanto scrive Henrik Ståhl sul suo blog

The JDK 7 project has reached Feature Complete (FC). This means that development and QA have finished all planned feature and test development work in the release and are moving the focus to testing and bug fixing on all supported JDK 7 platforms. This is a major step towards JDK 7 General Availability (GA) and implies that we are tracking close to the plan published on

Le tecnologie complementari potranno essere integrate successivamente nel JDK. Tra queste JAXP (Java API for XML Processing), JAXB (Java Architecture for XML Binding), JAX-WS (Java API for XML Web Services) e JMX (Java Management Extensions). Tuttavia non ci si attende che la gestione di queste possa avere un impatto negativo sul piano di rilascio di JDK 7.

Per il prossimo 17 febbraio dovrebbe essere disponibile la Developer Preview di JDK 7, mentre la versione finale dovrebbe essere disponibile per il 28 luglio.
