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.

You got something mixed up. I meant to say that 0.9 and 0.9.1 can have new features added to it, but the big 1.0 version should focus on only stability and optimization. Sorry for the confusion. :)

Come to think of it, I think Mozilla needs a few more .9x builds in order to get everything a 1.0 browser should have like, Delete IE Folder. Back and forward buttons fixed. Layout of preferences and other pop-ups need to be cleaned up and more.professional looking. Text boxs the same size in IE. Autoscrolling. LDAP.

All this is what I feel would either not take too long to implement or fix(except LDAP). It would be cool if their was a new Milestone added(.9.2) that dealt with these issues. Shouldn't take more than a week to get this stuff in but as of now most of the new features I want implemented are assigned to a build way past a 1.2 release. :(

Am I asking too much here to get fixed? That god damn Delete IE favorites bug has close to 50 votes now. SOMEBBODY FIX IT PLEASE? PLEASE?
