Mozilla First Release? "Mozilla 1.0"

Thursday June 29th, 2000

There has been some question as to what the first release of Mozilla will be called. But now, in a post to the n.p.m.seamonkey newsgroup, Mitchell Baker states that the name of Mozilla's first release will officially be "Mozilla 1.0". They decided to use the "1.0" appellation because, "this is the first release developed through the open source process, and much of the code and the architecture is new". The user-agent will still begin with the "Mozilla/5.0" substring.

I think it's an excellent idea. It shouldn't break browser-sniffing code, because it isn't mozilla/*, and it doesn't have the misfeature of having a different number than the version on the browser distribution. It's a simple change, and it underscores the open-source lineage.
