M14 to Contain Crypto Code!

Monday February 28th, 2000

That's right, plans to land the newly opened crypto code on the M14 branch, which will "allow [] to get crypto out to the public, without affecting stability of the tip." But before they push a final M14 out, they want to get some good testing done of the crypto-enabled builds, and we plan to help them out with surveys or polls to gauge user opinion. We should know more Tuesday about when crypto will land in the branch; we'll let you know as soon as we hear anything.

You can read more about the crypto landing in Christine Begle's post to the n.p.m.seamonkey newsgroup.

They will get pushed back. Almost any bug which slips once will slip again, so there is "milestone inflataion". At one point I predicted that this would kill Mozilla, but hard working people are have proved me wrong. Most of this weeks OPEN M14s will be next weeks OPEN M15s. So long as measurable progress is made in the resulting builds, and Netscape engineers are being paid to do heavy lifting, we will eventually get a Mozilla Beta worth the name. I like pleasant surprises. A late (rather than cancelled) Mozilla is a pleasant surprise.
