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.


#33 Absolutely Agree: Problems on Linux

Linux is the only platform I use to do any work, and I have been testing out Mozilla on Linux for the the past couple of months. I am becoming concerned about the problems that are cropping up on the Linux builds. According to the bug reports these problems are not present on other platforms. These include some serious rendering bugs that make some of the pages I view frequently completely unreadable. See bug 25227 and 16008 . More disturbing is the trend that most of the Linux bugs I have been watching keep getting pushed back. I doubt that they will even be fixed by Beta, which will result in an unusable Beta for Linux.
