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.

When Mozilla 2.0 comes out, there might be confusion. Most likely, it will have a Mozilla/7.0 identifier string.

A lot of scripts out there hunt for a Mozilla/2.0 identifier to send a different set of information.

I agree with your reasoning that this is the first release, hence a "1.0" version.

I see your point as I am stumped on what I'm trying to suggest...
