The release many have been waiting for is due out within 24 hours,
Firefox 1.5 Release Candidate 1 (RC means post beta, pre-final)
(release delayed by a few days for bug fixin [developer.mozilla.org]).

Catch up on what was new in beta 1 and beta 2:
[mozilla.org...]
[mozilla.org...]
and live tomorrow:
[mozilla.org...]

Technically what's new:
[squarefree.com...]
and previously:
[squarefree.com...]
[squarefree.com...]
[squarefree.com...]
[squarefree.com...]

and really technical "what's new" for developers [simon.incutio.com]

Behind the scenes: 40 bugs still listed for 1.5 [bugzilla.mozilla.org]

You are going to make sure all your extensions are up to date for this release, it's critical.
TIP: easiest way to look at all your extensions & themes to track them for updating:
[mozilla.doslash.org...]
Basically I go down the list of hyperlinks the above makes and just check for current versions and/or complete changes for 1.5 support.

If you are a developer/programmer using javascript & css you might want to look at the nifty Console2 extension for 1.5 [forums.mozillazine.org]

Some of us don't update Firefox daily, even though we're big fans of the thing (I'm still stuck with RC3, but I'll do something about that later ;-)
