Aphrodite Update (Alternative Mozilla user interface project)
by John Dobbins

Aphrodite Lives!

I've recently taken over the Aphrodite project and started going through the old code. Aphrodite now launches with the Mozilla 1.0 rc1 builds. Aphrodite 0.6 will be a bug fix release that works with Mozilla 1.0. Aphrodite 0.7 will be for feature catch up, so that things like tabbed browsing that have been introduced since the last Aphrodite release will be supported.

by Joshua Lerner

The mirrors project is a new project on mozdev. We are in the early stages of setting up a worldwide network of mirror sites for official releases as well as nightly snapshots of mozdev projects. Anyone interested in setting up a mirror should email the project list at As of 4/24/02, we have two organizations lined up to be the first mirrors, both on the East Coast. Technical information is forthcoming.
