Important checkins

There's been some interesting checkins into Mozilla the last couple of days. I'll list some of them here:

several libraries need to be linked with -R $ORIGIN
As part of the NSS 3.9 integration with Solaris 10, we need to add the above linker flags . This is so that the Solaris maintainers are happy; and helps NSS applications (linked with -R NSS_explicit_location) can correctly locate all .so's without LD_LIBRARY_PATH having to be set.

Roaming - 4.x-HTTP-compatible
In this case, the minimal work to get some roaming support, with some Netscape Communicator 4.x compatibility, running will be done. FYI, this should appear in 1.8 alpha2, but not in 1.7 final.

The comment in the bug report that you link to has no real details of how to get roaming working, saying 'I don't have an howto ready now, I realize you
are itching to try this out and it may *not* be obvious how.'

It is a very exciting development and congatulations are due to Beonex / Ben Bucksch and all involved. But it would require a lot of reading through the bug report / patches to figure out the required settings.

If you use a nightly build you can use Edit -> Preferences!

In my nightly build of Mozilla I'm seeing Roaming User under Edit -> Preferences

Hmm, strange, is that the installer build or just the zip archive?
