There is no ToDo-list! What features are added next depend solely on the interests of the contributors.

Here is a very old list with thoughts assembled at the release of K-Meleon 0.6 (some of this might have been fixed since then):

(last updated: 25 October, 2001)

Developers: feel free to use this as a source of ideas for what you can do to help out.
Many of these features are very simple to add, and the only reason they're not in the code
base already is that the developers don't have the time to add them.


- browser view does not have focus/active until page clicked (no link hand, no mousewheel)
- rebarmenu does not unhighlight hot item when moving mouse after opening a menu
- status bar is always (hidden/visible) on some systems
- save as doesn't work well
- If you rename a profile, the new name does not appear until profile manager is restarted
- 1024 Bookmarks limitation

To do for next release
- option to use scroll wheel to change font size
- option to switch between profiles in AppData? or kmeleon install directory
- os detection to set profile dir option (appdata for nt/2k/xp, install dir for 9x/me)
- kmeleon -settingsDir C:\path_to_my_own_directory command line option
- kmeleon -configsDir C:\path_to_my_own_directory command line option
- bookmarks plugin needs to escape ampersands
