Yesterday we reported you about the release of iTunes 10.5.1 Beta 2 and iOS 5.0.1 for developers. Today, apple has released a new version of Safari numbered 5.1.2 Beta for developers only. The main purpose of releasing Safari 5.1.2 Beta is to resolve PDF viewing bug which was found in previous versions.
Safari 5.1.2 fixes issues where PDFs in frames were not displayed in the browser. Please test this build with websites that display PDF documents inline such as banks and document management systems.
Developers will be able to download Safari 5.1.2 Beta in order to test the below mentioned changes:
Inline PDF Support: Fixes an issue where PDFs in frames were not displayed in the browser. Test using websites that use PDFs inline such as banks and document management systems. Also test saving and using context menus with PDFs in frames.
Plug-ins: Test mouse and keyboard interaction in plug-ins with input fields.
Printing: Test printing web pages. Printing web pages to PDF is sufficient.
Known Issues: There is a known issue with some Safari Extensions that use the ‘beforeload’ event. This can cause Safari to crash under certain circumstances.
This new version of safari is supported on OS X Lion, OS X Snow Leopard, and Windows.
