Mozilla 0.8.1 Released!

Monday March 26th, 2001

mozilla.org today shipped Mozilla 0.8.1. Builds are available on the ftp server and release notes are also available.

Mozilla 0.8.1 continues on the road to 1.0, and is one of the last milestones prior to it. The next planned milestone will be 0.9, and will branch on or around April 20. Following that will either be a 0.9.1 release or a 1.0 branch on the 20th of May. More info on the milestone plan is available on the mozilla.org roadmap page.

Mozilla 0.8.1's new features include an updated Chatzilla, a much improved Javascript console, improved theme switching and support for theme uninstalling, new history viewer ala mozClassic, improved mail filtering, and numerous other bug fixes. 0.8.1 does not include the new Outliner Mail Window, the new disk cache, or imglib2.

Well stuff like the Outliner were MAJOR changes that temporarily destabilized the trunk. They wouldn't such major changes dropped in so late into the development of 0.8.1 and risk delaying 0.8.1 much further.

April 20 sounds about right, since work on Mozilla 0.9 started when the 0.8.1 was separated into its own branch, which was last week, which would put about a month of work before the next milestone, and so far they've been doing a fair job in keeping about a month between milestones.
