  • What's changed ?

Epiphany 0.7.3

The release address a critical bug that have been reported.

In the 0.7.2 release notes I forgot to mention that we had to reorganize gconf prefs keys, so the previous configuration will be lost.

Also the smart bookmarks format is changed and it will be necessary to readd them. Now it's possible to edit them in the user interface though, just typing the url in the Address field of properties and using %s.

  • Display tooltips on toolbars (Marco)
