[2004-12-20] The second 0.10 release candidate is out

Here goes the second release candidate. At some point during the past couple of days the patching became rather hectic.

The main changes includes fixes for a lot of bugs marked as blockers and something not seen very often: new documentation.

[2004-01-20] The age of CSS hacking

The work on supporting Cascading Style Sheets has begone. Among the small things to enjoy is highlighting of search terms when viewing cached pages from google and then links on freashmeat are now underlined. Still a lot to do but the basic infrastucture regarding CSS parsing is taking shape.
