PSM 2.0 expected by May

Thursday January 25th, 2001

Bob Lord explains in n.p.m.crypto:
"We've just posted the first draft of several PSM 2.0 (codename PIP) documents. In addition to the Roadmap which we posted a few days ago, you'll now find the first cut at the workplan (a version of what we internally call the 'PRD'), a tasklist, and a link to the UI mockups.

Start here: http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/pki/psm/

These documents will evolve over the next few weeks as we learn more and as Mozilla developers identify the areas where they'd like to help (platform support, for example).

We're trying to release PIP by the end of May. We'll soon post more information about building PIP, as well as the target date for switching the nightly builds over."

If I'm reading "in-process" correctly, it probably means that we don't need to wait for PSM to load the first time we enter a secure connection. This is a significant speed up because even on my Pentium II, current PSM takes about 5 seconds to load. I think "in-process" is the way it should be because all previous browsers can make secure connections instantly.
