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.

You are replying to this message

"Why do you fail to understand the distinction?"

I'm not arguing about fricking semantics here. The whole thing started when someone said "Mozilla will kick IE's ass" (for the record, not including "for me") and I replied to it and said I disagree. That sparked a load of comments like "shut up, we don't care what YOU THINK" and now I'm saying that I don't like the attitude that people are being silenced just because they don't agree with an opinion.

In reply to that, I get a post where the writer says that "you can't say X" and then asks what my problem is. My problem is EXACTLY THAT; being told what I can and can't say and can and can't think. I think Mozilla is not on par with IE yet, but I hope it will be one day soon. This isn't about semantics regarding "for me" vs. stating things as absolute facts. Jesus Christ! What a bunch of kids!

I'm not commenting on this thread (or any in this article) anymore because any time spent on this is simply wasted.
