After a long development process we have shipped the first beta of our WebRenderer Swing Edition 6. The reason this beta is important is because we are now officially supporting 64bit systems (Windows, OSX, Linux). It has long been our goal to support 64bit systems with WebRenderer. The first 64bit development by our development team started back in 2006. Unfortunately the underlying browser platform did not support 64bit systems which was ultimately a stopping point for us. Now that 64bit has been adopted by the underlying platforms we can now “fully” support 64bit systems. The speed of development in which browsers are moving today poses some challenges with backwards compatibility. That said, we are working hard to have the same operating system compatibility as our WebRenderer Swing Edition 5.0. That includes both SPARC Solaris™ 8 and AIX 5.2 even though there is no known build (at least known to us) of Firefox™ 4+ supporting these platforms. The 6.0 beta is also a milestone for additional technology support in WebRenderer such as the addition of SVG as a supported technology. Anyway, enough of my rambling and on to the official press release:
