In addition a slew of bug fixes, the new release includes spell-checking based on the Mac OS X spelling dictionaries, applicable to Web fields. Like Safari and Firefox have already implemented, Camino 1.5 will also display an icon in the location bar for Atom and RSS feeds, and clicking the icon will pass the feed to the system's default feed reading application. Also like Firefox, Camino will sport a "session restore" function, that will bring back all tabs and open browser windows in the case of an unexpected quit or crash.
Camino can also now share Keychain entries with Safari, meaning other applications can read entries created by Camino.
The ability to disable all plug-ins should prove a boon for managing stability, while a 'Block Flash animations' option prevents Flash from starting until the user clicks the play icon. There is also a new option to accept cookies only for the current session.
Current users will have to do a little re-learning after applying the new version, as keyboard shortcuts and menu items have been drastically reorganized.
Finally, a zoom command now resizes the window to fit the current page's content instead of making the window full-screen, and the interface has been revised slightly.
Camino 1.5 requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later and 50 MB free hard drive space.
