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.


#79 Debugging cruft in win32 builds?

Is it just me or do the Win32 builds have the debugging stuff built in? Is this normal for what should be a release?

I usually use Chris Blizzard's rpm packaged builds for Linux, which are built as separate mozilla / mozilla-mail / mozilla-psm / mozilla-chat, all stripped down without the debugging stuff compiled in. It makes everything a little faster, and the builds a little smaller.
