M13 Alpha - What's Next?

Thursday January 27th, 2000

Mozilla.org has declared M13 to be "alpha" which means Mozilla needs your attention and constructive bug reports as it pushes towards beta. Why not check out the latest builds and start using Mozilla more and more throughout your day?

Also, you can join the gathering in #mozillazine every evening. Talk about the latest builds, help clear out duplicate bugs, or just hang and chat. Point your IRC client at irc.mozilla.org, or, better yet, you can use the Chatzilla IRC client enabled in the latest builds (under the Tasks menu). Just start up the client, /attach moznet, and then /join #mozillazine. You'll probably want to change your nick from IRCMonkey to something more appropriate once you get connected. :-) You can also use the Java chat client on our chat page.


#10 Speaking of FTP ...

and I know I should file a bug/enhancement report on this but how is the current FTP setup going to change? I seriously doubt the current setup in Mozilla, with opening and closing the trees, will remain the same because there are major flaws:

There is no mouse-orientated way open a directory in its own window.

It is hard to read across the screen to see which files go with which dates and which file sizes.

Well a proposal I think would work is a two panel FTP, a small left panel will house the directory tree while the right main panel will show all the files in any given directory.

I am not complaining, just curious.
