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 Started a thread on N.P.M.UI on June 21 called "Should Mozilla have it's own skin". Allmost everyone agrees that Mozilla should have a different skin than Netscape's Modern skin as it's default skin. The problem is deciding what it will be. The latest builds have skin switching and a choice of 2 skins. The default Modern skin or the Classic skin, which is based on Netscape 4.x. As for the Modern skin Netscape is detremined to use it, even though nobody outside of Netcenter really likes it.
