Status Update

Friday January 14th, 2000

David Polberger thought it was worth drawing attention to Jim Roskind's Seamonkey status update on the mozilla.org Status Update page.

Jim talks about dogfood, alpha, beta -- all from an unofficial point-of-view -- and gives a clear look ahead at the next few months of development.

There's a lot to do, but they're making great progress, and I expect M13 (the tree closes for M13 stabilization on the 18th of January) will get a strong reception.

Sounds like Moz is going to have some competition on the Mac. Maybe this will motivate Moz developers to make the XUL capable of have a more "mac like" UI? What's MozillaZine members take on this?

Take a look at this: <http://www.microsoft.com/…e/ie5features2.htm#tasman>
