Stability, font work, and Geolocation for Linux

June 25th, 2010

This snapshot fixes a few more crash bugs that are affecting a lot of people. There is also some more work on international fonts (however, please look at the known issues below), and Geolocation using Wifi is now available for Linux.

If you are having problems with Geolocation on Linux, please include details about the driver for your wireless adapter. You can use the following command:

lspci | grep EthernetNote that FreeBSD still doesn’t use Wifi for geolocation, and only uses the computer IP which is less accurate.

Known Issues

  • International fonts not working correctly on Linux/FreeBSD
  • Geolocation on FreeBSD still falls back to IP
