Basically, M16/17 are stabilization and feature cleanup milestones, and there will be a large focus on optimizing and debugging Mozilla, so that both Netscape and other groups can get a good usable base to build off of.

I presume "1.0" is a theoretical version number because it looks like Mozilla is sticking with Milestones (I've seen up to M30 mentioned on mozilla.org) and date-based build numbers :-)

It looks like bloat is indeed one of the main things that the Mozilla project will be looking at for M16/M17, though if their leak figure of 4K in Tinderbox is truly correct, then that's impressive for such a large project.

I, personally, would like to see a downloadable optimised, stripped and maybe devoid-of-mail/news/editor version of Mozilla in addition to the debug versions, at least for the Milestone releases. That way, we'd have a lean and mean Mozilla for every day browsing and the debug/bloat-a-rama version for reporting bugs.
