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.

"shutup"? The truth hurts? For your information, there's a reason why I'm following the Mozilla project. The reason is that I'm hoping that there would - once again - be a world class Netscape web browser. I don't like the fact that Microsoft is the only manufacturer with a good web browser. Unfortunatley though, that's the truth right now and trying to brain wash people to think that Mozilla is "good" and "ready" does nobody any good. Do you have any idea how much negative PR Netscape got with version 6 and 6.01? It's a dissaster for them! Mozilla 0.8.1 is barely any better at all. I have confidence in Mozilla.org and that 1.0 will be good and usable, but to say that 0.8.1 kicks IE5.5 or IE6.0 is just a plain lie.
