I'd sure like to see 7 at least pop up as an option in RH. It would be great to free up some memory.

well since FF6 should be made a RC this Wednesday Yankie time/day that should push FF7 into Beta a week or 2 later. i think there only doin g 4 or 5 Beta's of a beta now instead of 10 beta's before a RC

so i cant see why a pre-beta of FF7 cant make it in as they ship unfinished software in a final anyway

They have been a bit cautious with firefox before since it's so crucial to most peoples everyday use.

So I would think they will stick to Firefox 6.

well i dont know, FF7 should go into Beta on the 16th, if not a few days later which should give the Fedora Packager time to package FF7 Beta either in the Alpha or the beta of F16 and if they only do 5 or 6 Beta's of FF7 i cant see why they cant package FF7 into fedora16

Re: Firefox7 for F16?

since the f16 beta is delayed and in turn pushing the release of f16 further and moreover ff8 stable is releasing on nov 8, any chances of seeing ff8 beta in f16 final?

Re: Firefox7 for F16?

well, yeah, but when ff8 releases and ff7 is shot in the head, f17 will get ff8 as an update. we're kind of stuck on Mozilla's treadmill, now, as they don't support 'old' releases, by which they mean anything released more than 30 seconds ago.

Re: Firefox7 for F16?

so much frustration on the release cycle.But i personally think developement has accelerated a lot since the rapid release cycle.

But there is hope for everyone,who wants to stay on a extended release cycle...
