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.

...but I'm curious as to what happened to the old/original widgets, of which a draft is located here: <http://www.mozilla.org/xpfe/nsGFXWidgets.html>

I don't know if I'm alone in thinking that the current widget set could benefit from some more or less major and minor adjustments. I of course understand that these kind of issues are low priority ? but I'm just a bit curious.

Using latest Mac OS nightly build, 2000-02-15 09, and it seems rock solid (except for profile creation, but I'm quite convinced that that part of Mozilla has some sort of a curse set upon it, so it's no major issue =)
