Some Reasons to Try Out a Nightly Build

Sunday February 13th, 2000

If you haven't tried a nightly build in the past few days, we might have some reasons for you to do so.

Borofkin writes, "The latest nightly build has persistant proxy authentication, making it usable for those of us whose only Internet access is via an authenticating proxy server." I know a lot of people have been asking for this to be implemented.

Second, if you have shied away from using Mozilla's Mail/News because of the slow performance of the thread pane, you should really give it a try now. The threadpane now scrolls smoothly. There are still a few bugs, but the improvement is very noticable.

Yup, it's still a bit borked, in that focus doesn't initially go to the web view area, so it doesn't respond to keyboard shortcuts until you bring focus to the view area. The bug just got marked the other day as fixed, which annoys me, and I'm considering filing a new bug report or reopening it, as I just don't consider it functional, as of the latest nightly build (Linux version here, don't know about other builds).
