Mozilla 0.8.1 Released!

Monday March 26th, 2001 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 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.

Yes, the latest nightlies are quite usable. Aninated gifs shows as black pictures, to view the changed page I must press shift-reload (even I visited the page a day ago), crashes very often (every 30-40 min), mem usage is awful up to 100Mb! etc.

It will take a while to resolve all issues.

But the positive is: now it is way faster it was!
