update to tools for vs2008: (84.3mb):
I really wanted to feed the FUD trolls on this one - but why bother? you're either going to install it or you're not going to.
184.108.40.206 Spring Beta (May 29, 2008)
To people with install problems (seems like it wants to install something else?) - had this too. Put the msi/download in it's own directory and install from there.
Insane requirements -- a good graphics card, gobs of RAM, fast CPU.
I give it the highest mark because when everything is working right, it is visually stunning, and blows everything else (Celestia, Google Sky, etc) out of the water.
Now if we can only get them to release PhotoSynth for everyday joes to create their own collections, that would be something.
Addendum -- I had to uninstall the old one to get the new beta to correctly install
220.127.116.11 Spring Beta (Jun 19, 2008 - 3:04 PM)
Niro --- shhhhh, you're spoiling the glee of Christmas for a lot of little kids!
FWIW - FF3 final is running a lot more stable than the betas.
18.104.22.168 Spring Beta (Jun 4, 2008 - 2:39 PM)
Almost everything I run is a pre-release.
FF3 beta 2, released today, works fine with Silverlight 2 betas.
22.214.171.124 Spring Beta (Jun 4, 2008 - 2:37 PM)
You're asking way too much man - clue bricks are in short supply.
126.96.36.199 Spring Beta (Jun 4, 2008 - 2:07 AM)
Noticed that too, but I didn't know about the Flash side effect. Something must have changed in the plug-in interface between FF2/3.
FF2 seems to do it fine but the last FF3 pre-release installed itself over FF2 (uh, thanks?)
For new features/changes, see:
188.8.131.52 Spring Beta (May 22, 2008 - 2:50 PM)
How dare they try to take profits away from those millionaires with their high-end lunchroom chefs and "don't be evil" fake attitudes!
