Tentative Progress to Beta Schedule

Saturday February 26th, 2000

Mozilla is progressing towards beta, and you can now get a look at a tentative schedule. According to the document, M14 should be coming out any day now. After that, there's a steady progression towards 0 beta bugs, with a beta preview along the way. They're hoping to have a beta ready to ship by Mozilla's 2nd anniversary on March 31st. Thanks to Alex for the link.

Also, the performance issues noticed on Win98 have been solved, and we might see them fixed in Monday's dailies. The problem seems to be that all of the performance timing code was enabled in the dailies, which slowed everything down. We'll let you know when the fix is in. You can read more about it in the "We need volunteers to help solve M14 Performance problem" thread in the n.p.m.performance newsgroup.

UPDATE: Jim Roskind posted an explanation of the timing code issue in the .seamonkey newsgroup. Also, the timing code might be removed in today's daily, so check it out when it arrives.

There are 500+ bugs marked for M14. Are they all going to be pushed back to M15 or post Beta? Is the milestone plan falling apart? True, not all the M14 bugs are beta-stopper material, but if M15 will be the beta release, then I expect that the work towards it will be concentraed on bugs deemed to be Beta-stoppers. In that case, when will the M14 bugs be worked on, let alone the M15 ones?
