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.

the software development industry is unbelievable! you all have the classic sw dev attitude which is precisely the reason why nearly all software development projects are way over budget, very late and super buggy. you have no concept of scope.
there are plenty of good email and news clients on every platform. there are terrific free and low cost authoring tools. and hardly anyone uses net news anymore. why is this so hard to understand? really, i'd like to know. i just don't understand how it ahs come to this.
go through the status updates and bug reports and see how much energy has been spent developing, testing and fixing those buggy components. noone's egtting them "for free". they've very nearly cost mozilla its relevance. that's a very high price to pay.
