When do we get IE8b2?

I love the software of course! So am I the first to ask when a beta 2 version is ready?

Re: When do we get IE8b2?

Btw, IE8 Beta2 is very stable. Upgraded the IE7 installed on my XP and haven't had any significant problem yet. It's nice when a single tab crashes, but not the whole browser smile
CSS is somewhat broken in the new version, but we can easily toggle the compatibility mode (IE7-like).

Re: When do we get IE8b2?

Thanks fabrice!  Your software is a great benefit to the www (formidable!).

While I do enjoy IETester's ease of use compared to running muliple virutal pcs or multi-booting, I have found IE8's rendering to be different than webkit/gecko in ways that still puzzle me. Does anyone know of good references with respect to getting things to render properly in IE8? 

I noticed that IE8b2 completely wigs out on Google Custom Search results pages where it continually opens new tabs/windows of the result page. Most of the other problems that I have noticed are css related.

Re: When do we get IE8b2?

Hi,

I am not sure to understand your point. Do you have a problem with IE8 beta 2 rendering engine ? or with IE8 beta 2 rendering badly only UNDER ietester (that is the default IE8 beta 2 is handling correctly your code) ?

If this is an IE8 beta 2 problem, I can't do anything (and moreover, that's why IETester exists, to check problems under different IE version).

If this is an IETester issue, can you send me a public url where I can see the problem ?

Thanks.

Re: When do we get IE8b2?

What I was referring to is IE8 itself.  Now that we have an easy way to use IE of many versions, I was hoping that a reserve of knowledge has accumulated somewhere.

Im sure the rendering issues in an IE8 tab in IETester are due to IE8, but is a particular problem due to incomplete or incorrect implementation by Microsoft? In that case I could chalk up a problem to IE's beta status.  Or perhaps the problem is due to MS having an alternate interpretation of a standard or perhaps a different opinion on what should be implemented.  It's also conceivable that MS could intentionally go a different way on a particular rendering issue than gecko/webkit for strategic reasons.  In that case, its up to us (website implementers) to code around such an issue.

So back to my question, IETester is showing me many ways in which IE8b2 is differing from the pack and I want to know for each issue: is this something IE is fixing or is this how IE8 is going to do it and I have to accomodate it.  I know that this may go beyond the scope of dicussing IETester alone, but since the whole reason for the tool is for us to more easily accomodate IE, its not completely off topic (I hope).

I can share this: QuirksMode.org by Paul Koch http://www.quirksmode.org/css/contents.html chronicles many specific css differences (on occasion I have gotten data appears to differ from his data for a specific test) which is mostly fantastic however it simply lists the differences and I was hoping someone out there has a resource with perhaps more intimate discussion or knowledge of specific IE8 issues (and knowledge of what are real issues and what are just beta-incompleteness) with workarounds.

Re: When do we get IE8b2?

OK.

I see two points here :

IETester is showing me many ways in which IE8b2 is differing from the pack and I want to know for each issue: is this something IE is fixing or is this how IE8 is going to do it and I have to accomodate it.

This is a question you should ask to Microsoft ! I think nobody else can answer...

I was hoping that a reserve of knowledge has accumulated somewhere.

I was thinking of opening an IE bugs knowledge base some months ago. Maybe something to do in the future, as a kind of bugtracker with possible workarounds for each bug...
