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.

I just did a couple of queries and got 198 PDT+ bugs, 193 PDT+ beta1 bugs and 158 PDT+ beta1 M14 bugs. Jim Roskind's note had language like M14 having "a *shot* at being the basis for a branded alpha or beta release. I'm guessing that it'll be close. We can hope/help.
