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.

When Mozilla reaches 1.0 and all the thousand small bugs that makes it look and feel like a toy are fixed, then maybe it will be on par with IE5.5 or IE6.

very true.. i use mozilla as my primary browser, but it does indeed still have some major issues to solve (cache, performance, etc -- which are being worked on feverishly!). the reason i use it is because it already has a lot of great usability features, and fantastic rendering ability and standards support. it will not be long before the little bugs are smoothed out! until then, it affords yet a glimpse -- however increasing in clarity -- at this future.
