Independent Status Reports (20 December, 2004)
Monday December 20th, 2004By Brian King
The end of year is upon us again and as always it is a time for reflection. A time to assess the hits and the misses in the Mozilla community. It was a year when the standalone browser and email clients, Firefox and Thunderbird, matured and released top quality 1.0 versions. It was a year when other Mozilla projects, such as Sunbird, Camino and Nvu really came into their own. It was a year when the Mozilla Platform was becoming more recognised as a commercial application platform.
Yet we must not rest on our laurels. The Mozilla Foundation and wider community must adapt to meet the challenges ahead. One exciting new project to herald this new era is Minimo, Mozilla browser for mobiles. Happy Holidays from the mozdev.org team!
