Safari to hit gold master next month

Cheers to our very own lady in red for this post! Thanks Cara

Apple's Safari web browser will reach the final "gold master" stage next month, sources say. The company's target to declare Safari gold master (GM) is reportedly near the middle of June, in the weeks before the Worldwide Developers Conference.

Just before publicly releasing build 74 last week, which provided a secure bug-fix, Apple seeded build 78 to developers. Sources familiar with build 78 say that when its disk image is mounted, it is entitled "Safari 1.0," suggesting that the current flow of development will indeed lead to the GM, and not another major beta release. Previously, seeded disk images were named "Safari Beta."

Sources also noted that build 78 includes a new "autotab" checkbox column in the bookmarks manager. Clicking on the checkbox turns a bookmark folder into a button which opens its contents into a set of tabs, with one click. This functionality can currently be achieved by Command-clicking on a bookmark folder or by selecting "Open in Tabs" from the bottom of the pop-down bookmark list.
