On March 19, Microsoft has officially released the Final version of its new Internet Explorer 8 browser.

On March 20, we released a minor update (Build 768.3) of the AllWebMenus Web Menu Maker which fixes some issues caused by differences between the IE8 Final version and its Release Candidate.

Today (March 23), we released another minor update (Build 768.4) that fixes some newly reported issues occurring on rare configurations.

Note that IE8 Final version is not bug-free and Microsoft will continue to release patches in the near future. We will keep a close eye on their patch releases and will act immediately if a minor update in AllWebMenus javascripts is required.

You may download the latest version of AllWebMenus from www.likno.com/download.html (or from your Likno User Area account).

Install it, recompile your menus and upload to your server the updated menu file AND the –also updated- awmdata folder that contains the new javascript libraries that fully support IE8 Final.

-----
Note: AllWebMenus supports IE8 since its BETA phases. In particular, the Release Candidate version (RC1) is supported since Build 764 (Feb. 16).

Microsoft has recently released the RC1 version of its new Internet Explorer 8 browser.

The new version 5.1.764 of the AllWebMenus Web Menu Maker has included several fixes that deal with issues related to the changes made in this new IE8 browser.

If you do not want to wait for the final release of IE8 (recommended), you may download the latest version of AllWebMenus from www.likno.com/download.html (or from your Likno User Area account), install it, recompile your menus and upload to your server the updated menu file AND the –also updated- awmdata folder that contains the libraries – and also the fixes.

We are continuously testing the AllWebMenus application with all updates of the IE8 BETA; however some issues are still present under specific conditions and the Microsoft team is working on resolving them (see a list of IE8 BETA bugs here: http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSection/MSIE8Bugs/ )

When the IE8 browser is officially released, these BETA-related issues will not be affecting your menus, unless Microsoft does not fix its own bugs!

Read below how Microsoft treats IE8 and the problems we all may face if action is not taken by Microsoft:
