Next Safari Public Beta

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know when the next public version of Safari is going to be released? I would really like the use of tabbed browsing and auto-fill.

Does anyone have an idea? How about when the other versions of safari have come out? Are we talking near future (days to week) or more?

This Spymac thread says Safari v71 was just posted for ADC members. Any truth to this??!?

Wasn't the seed program killed?

I saw the download page, but none of the links worked. The download page is now gone (at least temporarily).

Safari v69 and v71 are both here. v71 is now 'beta 2'

Yes, links for v71 were posted for ADC members, but the links did not actually work. They 404'd on the servers.

They should release a new beta, Safari currently doesn't work with AIM Express for example.

71 = fast fast fast fast fast.
post #10 of 35
I'm not noticing any significant speed improvements, but I am noticing more stability. v.67 would crash on me often, especially handling Java and Flash. No problems with v.71. I like the new "Reset Safari" option.

Also, maybe it's just me, but the bookmarks list seems snappier, especially bringing up subfolders. Also of interest is the "Beta 2" moniker in the About box.

Still some cookie issues, and some CSS issues, but good stability.

Strong like bull.

I had a little accident with the time and date preference pane on my mac, I unknowingly set the date to December of 2003. When I tried to launch Safari, I got a dialogue telling me that the beta expired on June 30. So I guess we will for sure have something by then. Are there any trade shows close to that date where Apple might release a "for real" version of Safari, or is this just an arbitrary date, giving developers time to work out bugs and release a new beta?

Yes there is truth to it, as I have seen it first hand. Secondly, the mass beta test program has been killed but some select ADC members still have access to the seeds; at least that is my understanding.

dang v.71???

i was really hoping apple would release v.69 just for shits and giggles


anyways...i've been using camino after trying v.64 and disliking it....told myself i would try safari again at v.8

though if v.71 arrived at my doorstep i might find it hard to resist...

I got v71 from somewhere... I think a little elf I found under a rock gave it to me...

I encountered two bugs though, quite quickly. One is that when I had about five or six tabs open, and I chose to close one, I got the beachball of death and I had to force quit. The other one is that for some reason, after I had closed all windows, I couldn't make a new window, I had to quit the application and then start it again. Strangely, after going back to v60, it had moved my bookmarks into two plain folders called "BookmarkBar" and "BookmarkMenu." I had to move them back to get my old setup back. Finally, in v71 when you have two tabs open and you close one, it attempts to animate the disappearance of the tab bar but apparently it's not done very well because it always lags when it disappears. Maybe I'm just seeing things. Anyway, I've gone back to v60 but I'm keeping the stuffed v71 around just in case I wanna try it again. v60 is definitely more bug-free than v71. I'm guessing they'll release another one in like 4-6 weeks, maybe around v76-80. I really have no idea though, that's just idle speculation on my part.

v71 seems to be a fair bit faster for me plus it doesnt have a silly tab/losing the correct thread thing in bb that 64 & 67 had.

it's a bit faster..... yeah

Safari looks so much better in Aqua to me, it is the most unobtrusive browser interace I've ever seen. Kudos to Apple, and Aqua interface should be an easier option. I hope they keep it lookin good in Aqua.

Is the beeping in v60? I don't hear it, but if it is in any build higher don't complain because those builds are not supposed to be in your hands until Apple releases it.

v.71 correctly displays AppleInsider's font.

I don't use beta software unless it's publicly released.

Same here.

At first, Safari ran like a dream on my iBook, then it suddenly became quite slow, often grinding to a halt with the dreaded beachball. Cleared the cache - even the cookies.

I guess something was tweaked the wrong way in one of the updates.

Bah, my iBook is cursed. The people at Flextronics are probably laughing at it right now - or performing an exorcism.

I could be wrong but Safari v71 seems to start hogging the CPU in some instances. I don't know in what particular instance, but I remember this morning realizing that everything on my computer was slow...starting with the screensaver...so I ran top and saw that Safari was using 160ish% CPU (on a dual 800).

Use v71 with caution.

To make it worse, Apple already killed the seed program to most developers. They are going to be pissed when they find out most of the people on AI have it again..

Personally I don`t tend to use beta software unless its released either - besides when the full thing is released you go "god damn" instead of well this is a *little* better

Just a note: v60 is displayed as version number "0.8.2" while v71 is "0.9." And it took about two months to get there. All that points to a 1.0 release (v80 or thereabouts) in another two months - WWDC.

OMG was i wrong or what

this is awesome tho, i hope they fixed the occasional beachball of death when closing a tab.
post #35 of 35
I just noticed the coolest thing, if you have a folder, which pulls down on the Bookmarks Bar, it has the option at the bottom to open all the websites in tabs.
God this is awesome!
