Ok, trying something new here. Two(!) posts, albeit shorter than the usual ones. I though I’d try and sometimes write the normal slightly longer posts, and some days, shorter ones with important links. Please let me know what you think about this!
So… On to the topic in the heading:
The team behind IE have the IE blog where they periodically write about the development of IE. Chris Wilson tries to address the big focus issues like upcoming standards support in version 7 of IE. I think he’s doing a commendable job so far, and it is very important that they gain the same relation with developers as the Mozilla team and Dave Hyatt developing Safari have.
Last Friday, Chris disclosed the first real details about the upcoming version. First, they will support the alpha channel in PNG images. Second, they will address CSS bugs, and the ones declared fixed are the peekabo bug and the guillotine bug.
Great, but still obvious that they had to do it. Also, it’s just a small small part of what they have to do.
But they seem to be on the right track, I hope they don’t stray from it and that they continue be as open as Chris has about what’s going on.
