Milestone 17 has Arrived!

Monday August 7th, 2000

Mozilla.org has posted M17 binaries in the usual place. These are some really rock-solid builds, and are the best builds yet, IMHO... Grab them while they're hot!

Release Notes and a What's New page are also available for your pleasure.

This M17 build is essentially PR2, too - so if you want to check out the core of PR2 without all of the commercial cruft, grab this M17 release.

And if you're looking to be cutting-edge, you should be grabbing the M18 builds, which are already eclipsing the M17 builds in terms of quality.


#18 Wherefore art thou newsgroups?

This is getting ridiculous. M17 *still* has "Newsgroups" grayed out in the tasks menu. Are they ever going to put newsgroup selection in?

I know you can get at newsgroups you're already subscribed to through the mail task, but that's not common knowledge. And graying out newsgroups makes it look like they aren't implemented at all, which means people are less likely to try it. And, of course, there is no UI for subscribing or unsubscribing.

There's not going to be much time for user feedback at this rate.
