Mozilla.org Updates

Wednesday September 20th, 2000

Lots of happenings at mozilla.org in the past few days, with a new roadmap up for review, and a new checkin policy, in force. Both are plans for the future of mozilla following Mozilla .9 and Netscape 6.

In a nutshell, Netscape and Mozilla will branch soon, and all Netscape 6/Mozilla .9 work will be on that branch, while the trunk rolls towards a Mozilla 1.0 release. The new reviewer rules are now in effect, and require you to still get a peer review and module owner approval, and along with those a super review from the reviewers group at mozilla.org.

Along with all that, there is a new status update now up, with a variety of updates on what has been happening over the last week.

As you probably know, Mozilla and Netscape have pretty different audiences. I'll leave it to Netscape to give a description of their Customers/Users/Audience (I dont' want to speak for them) and hopefully the Netscape 6 product will satisfy that audience. Mozilla has as it's primary audience developers. It is our intention to release a Mozilla 1.0 that addresses the needs of this audience. This means things like fotprint, a broader set of APIs, embedding issues, etc. Mozilla in not there yet. But we'd also like to have a release/source tag that coincides with the Netscape 6 product which whill be used by millions of end users so that folks working on mathML and similar projects can build 'drop-in' components that will just 'work' in the Netscape 6 product. This is the reason for having a Mozilla 0.9 Hope this helps clarify it some.
