Markus Mielke from the IE team is at the W3C Technical Plenary and showed Molly Holzschlag and Malarkey some of the most recent CSS work in IE7. Certainly some great progress. In Molly's comments Dustin Diaz says "As it stands, I’d be perfectly happy with the improvements if the team stopped all development of the browser right now." Well we're not going to stop development. We're going to continue. We know we have plenty of work still to do in many areas and we are thinking about what comes after IE7.
It's great to see recognition for the work we have done. IE7 continues to shape up as a very strong browser release.
