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.

Well, of course you will still have the option of using the old Netscape 4.x.

I think it's great that Redhat is supporting and contributing to Mozilla, and it's great that Mozilla is finally going to be included in the Redhat distribution.

I've been using the daily rpm builds of Mozilla from Chris Blizzard, who works for Redhat. From what I've seen, Mozilla on Linux has become the most stable and powerful browser anywhere.
