Firefox for Maemo RC1 (and Happy New Year!)

Editor’s note: Today, Mozilla released the Firefox for Maemo Release Candidate. Check out Director of Mobile, Stuart  Parmenter’s blog post reposted below.

To help bring in the new year, Mozilla has released the first release candidate of Firefox for Maemo.   If you’ve already got beta 5 installed on your N900 or N810, you will be receiving a software update shortly.  Otherwise, if you’re viewing this on your device, you can install it from here.

As always, we’ve provided unbranded Fennec desktop builds on Windows, Mac, and Linux.  You can use these if you don’t have a Maemo device or to aid in addon-on development.

We’ve improved text rendering, added new hooks for add-on developers, and continued to polish the application.  We’ve addressed many N900 specific issues, including installing to /opt and the fixing the symbol picker.

We’re looking to get all the feedback we can as we move forward, so please leave comments or file bugs.
