\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"this version of mozilla contains lots of bugs and should IMHO never have been released.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"

What are you talking about? The 0.7 release? Of course it has bugs; it is basically just a revised nightly build from over a month ago. The 0.x releases are just a formality for benchmarking long term progress and so that 3rd party developers can have a stable basis to build from.

Regarding the time frame - it says that it will be coming out in 2nd quarter. That means April or later. If things continue to progress as they have lately, there is a good chance that 1.0 could be ready in time. If Nokia has their own programmers working on optimizing their own variation then they can surely get all the relevant bugs out in time.
