Full Article Attached New Mozilla Cache Lands!

Tuesday March 20th, 2001

The new cache, which will be used for HTTP, FTP, and the new imagelib (which uses part of the memcache for decompressed images) landed today. With this ground-up rewrite the loading of cached copies should be "significantly faster." Check out the full story for an excellent summary of this new cache from Gagan Saksena and to find out how you can help test the new cache.

UPDATE - there is a problem with the old cache that conflicts with the new cache. Before you run a build with the new cache, you should manually delete the contents of your cache directories. If you go back to an old build, you should perform the same duty again. For more information and to track the status of this see the bug.

Check out bugs 55583, 60426 and 64100 on bugzilla. The View Source issues have been bothering me for a while too. There are a number of good improvement extensions, such as allowing helper apps to be designated for viewing/editing and allowing options for viewing of original source prior to client-side processing.
