Thanks for your patience! We just released Beta version of Lunascape 6.0 in 9 languages other than English.(Chinese - traditional & simplified, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish)

We appreciate that many of you have tried it out even in alpha stage. Now, it's grown up to Beta - translations are done and many bugs are fixed. We certainly hope that many more people will go for test drive.

Please let us know if you find bugs and mistakes in translation!

Finally it's here. Lunascape 6.0 ORION released

Hi guys,

Thanks for all the wait. Today we released our new product Lunascape 6 ORION as test versions. For English it’s a beta and for other languages, alpha version is available for download.

With this version, Lunascape goes beyond the Triple Engine and adds Triple Add-on support, achieving the greatest degree of extensibility and flexibility among Web browsers.

Many of you have asked for compatibility with Firefox add-ons and now you have it! You can now utilize the vast array of add-ons for Firefox in addition to IE add-ons and Lunascape plug-ins, in a single platform.

Transferring your existing Firefox add-ons is easy and adding new ones to Lunascape is intuitive. And we have added a smart add-on organizer as a “gecko toolbar” so that you can manage add-ons easily with no clutter.

Other new features include:
  • New interface design (Orion) - sleek, simple, and easy to use
  • Split tab display - you can view a website in 3 engines side-by-side (hooray for web designers and developers!)
  • Sidebar 2.0 - The floating sidebar can handle multiple sidebar add-ons (e.g. minimap) at a time (only from beta) and can be separately displayed anywhere including another monitor.
And, we are happy to tell you that we did a major catch-up with WebKit functionalities (for beta)! The included Gecko revisions are for beta, for alpha. And WebKit revisions are r50048 for beta and r47762 for alpha.

Oh, what’ up with the name ORION? We picked this codename after the constellation (you know the one with 3 ‘belt’ stars surrounded by bright 4 stars) as a symbol of unifying four major browsers into a single platform through triple engines and triple add-ons.

Please check here for more details and if you’d like to dig in nuts and bolts, check out the Release Notes.
Try it out and let us know what you think. (Don’t worry - you can use Lunascape 5 and 6 on the same machine)

Reminder: This is a test version release to get your feedback to further develop the product. It may contain significant bugs, so please use it with caution and help us by reporting issues at Support Forum.

Version 5.1.6 just got out of the door

Hi guys,

We just released a small but important update. We have updated Gecko engine to version (same as Firefox 3.5.4). This includes 11 security fixes including 6 serious ones (according to Mozilla).

Please make sure to update to this version, if you use Gecko, to stay safe.

And you know what's coming after a small update, right? Stay tuned.
