Mozilla Has Branched for M17

Wednesday July 26th, 2000

Asa Dotzler writes, "The Plan: we branch this morning for M17 and nsbeta2 (PR2). M17 and nsbeta2 live together on the branch while we iron out the remaining 'plussed' bugs. The trunk gets renamed M18 and we start checking in bug fixes in carpools and individually. The trunk will probably become a little less stable (as is usually the case at a milestone or nsbeta) so if folks are looking for the stable builds they should get the branch M17 nightly builds. We don't have a date for M17/nsbeta2 yet. The plan is to relaease them at the same time but the timing is dependent on how swiftly we are rid of the remaining dogfood and nsbeta2+ bugs."

yes, I agree: M17 will be an impressive milestone. I post this message with Build M17-2000072904 (Win 32-Installer) and it is FAST, STABLE (no crashes since 3 or 4 hours) and SMALL (~ 6100 kB - no debug and test stuff)! Page rendering is much faster than IE 5.0 and, of course, NS 4.7 in my eyes!
