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.

This is not a Mozilla bug, therefore I think it's quite reasonable to require that you upgrade the broken component, in this case glibc. Your distribution ought to make this relatively painless, but unfortunately some distributors seem to think that it's a hobby (well in the case of Debian it is) and do not have an acceptable upgrade path yet. Those distributors do not have long to shape up. In summary -- "I don't want to" is not much of a reason to avoid glibc 2.1 Nick.
