Summary of Upcoming Mozilla Releases

We've got a lot going on over the next week or so. Here's a quick list of what's happening.

Firefox 1.0.1 candidate builds are done — we think these are the bits we'll be shipping tomorrow. Localizations are also done and are undergoing testing for a simultaneous release with en-US tomorrow around mid-day.

Thunderbird 1.0.1 still has a couple of fixes it needs and we hope to be able to get that wrapped up by the middle of next week.

Seamonkey 1.7.6 will be the security/stability update from the 1.7 branch that matches up with the Firefox and Thunderbird 1.0.1 releases. As soon as we get Firefox and Thunderbird shipped, we'll turn our attention to testing shipping Seamonkey 1.7.6. I'm usually overly-optimistic but I think we can get that out next week too.

Seamonkey 1.8b1 is done, I just need to get the release notes up and verify that talkback is doing the right things on Linux (if you've got "what's new" items for 1.8b1, please send them to me) and we'll push that out. That will hopefully happen tonight or tomorrow morning, though it's not the priority that Firefox 1.0.1 is so it may wait (some more) if I get busy with 1.0.1.

1.8b2 freezes in three weeks. I expect we'll be doing some kind of developer preview of Firefox 1.1 around the beta2. We'll stay frozen after beta2 until we branch for 1.8 and it's from that branch that we'll be shipping Firefox 1.1 and Thunderbird 1.1.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this schedule, and sorry for the lack of regular updates here.
