Optimoz Update (Optimizations for the Mozilla
by Andy Edmonds
A new gestures release for the new tree based 9.9+ builds, versioned 0.4. This will be the release for 1.0 and incorporates a better gesture trigger which blocks initiation in text areas, input boxes, and scrollbars. A technote has also been added to the site with instructions on customizing triggers and actions.
mozdev Update (Mozilla project hosting
by Brian King
We are putting together a consultants page on mozdev relating to people and consulting skills in the Mozilla sphere. The general idea is to have a useful reference for people using Mozilla to create applications, and need skills and people resources.
If you are interested in being listed on this page, let us know. The initial details we will need from you are:
- Technologies (interested in, e.g. XUL, XPCOM, RDF ...)
- Components (interested in, e.g. Browser, Editor, Calendar, all ...)
- Experience (Mozilla projects/applications worked on, changes made to tree ...)
If you have any other ideas for this page, please let us know on the consultants list.
Beonex Update (Internet client software suite
targetted at end-users)
by Ben Bucksch
The Beonex project tries to create a Mozilla for consumers (think "mom and dad"), very much like Netscape 6, but completely open-source and in the open-source spirit (focus on users, not websites etc.).
We're working an a new release (0.8) again, this time based on the 1.0 branch (of course). It's in relatively good shape. I am building on Linux, David Hallowell on Win32 and Zach Lipton on Mac OS X. We plan to release simultanously with Mozilla 1.0 RC1.
We still need more help for everything, atm esp.:
- C++ coders
- documentation writers (website description of the package, tutorials etc.)
- public relations (contacting press reporters)
- maintaining the user mailing list
- maybe Mac OS 8/9 building
I'm looking forward to hear from you!
