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.
Even though this is flamebait...
...the editor is used for text input in the browser (the standalone editor is actually a simple shell around that)...mail and news uses the browser to display all messages...editor is used in mail and news to create messages...the browser is used to create all the ui in mail and news and editor.
So the overhead for mail news and editor is actually quite small - you almost get them for free.
