They apparently didn't feel that those were ready for public consumption--that the problems needed a more savvy user or programmer to deal with failures until the next public release.
dude what is your problem? apple didn't even have to make a program like Safari!Originally posted by NavyIntel007
If Apple wasn't like freakin Fort knox all the damn time they wouldn't have to worry about it.
Releasing regular nightly builds never hurt Mozilla or the Camino projects.Originally posted by übergeek

The more buggier and newer builds were for developers to check out and fix, not for people like you to play with, yell about the bugginess of the program and send bug reports.
There's a reason why Apple has a developer seed program
Now that is incredibly helpful feedback. I'm sure that's just the kind of feedback they were really seeking to avoid.Originally posted by mac15
wouldn't you think the more we get it, the more feedback they'd recieve, I'm sure they recieved a heaps of stuff about v64 and how crap it was.
Correct. At first I also thought why not post nightly builds? Get as much feedback as possible! But like stated above, I'm pretty sure that Apple would be facing more support-problems than feedback.... if ya know what I mean.Originally posted by maxterpiece
Except what about damage control - what if there's a serious problem that causes safari to meddle with the system in a serious way? Now, suddenly, Apple has to deal with all these inexperienced mac users whining about their computers on apple help lines and support pages. Even if Apple said they would not provide any support for these beta versions, it is unrealistic to think that they will not have to deal with a serious problem if it affects mac users on such a large scale.
I noticed the same thing (in Dutch). The fact that Safari is translated probably means that no new features are planned and that we will see the final version soon.Originally posted by kjottbein
i tried version 67 too, and it didn't work at all; it quit when I chose New Window from the File menu.
But what was interesting, was that it was half-localized to norwegian (because of my norw. os version). Previous versions have been english only. Lots of "localization string not found", though. Maybe an OS update is needed before it works properly.
Also, it broke my favorites in safari 64, i think it moved them to another folder named something else in norwegian. god knows what.
People are upset because now they won't get leaked builds, or leaked info on the beta software. I was a seeded beta tester for Safari and I'm saddened that some idiot had to leak the latest build to get the beta program shut down. I hadn't received an email for the 67 build so that guy must've done it immediately after the email because I never got an email or a chance to download the build.Originally posted by Hmm
I don't know why some people are so upset about this. Apple didn't say there wouldn't be any more public betas, just no more seeds to developers. Kinda sucks from a developer standpoint, but Apple had no other choice.
