Full Article Attached Feature Status Update

Thursday March 29th, 2001

James Russell has volunteered to pick up the Feature Status Updates from Gerv. This is the first of many from James, with updates on imglib2, View Manager 3, the Cache rewrite, and many others. Click the Full Article link to check them out.

If you have a feature update, or a feature you think is missing, e-mail James (only features included in the Mozilla tree itself will be considered for mention). James has agreed to post new feature status updates for every point release of Mozilla (so the next ones will be for 0.9, 0.9.1 if there is one, and so on), which should work out to every five weeks or so, given the new Mozilla roadmap.

Also, thanks to all who volunteered to take this, your support was greatly appreciated!

There will probably be experimental PSM 2.0 XPIs available late this week or early next which should give drop-in in-process SSL support. Are you by any chance on win98. I'm on NT, win2K, Mac OS9.01 and RedHat 6.2 and do not experience any significant performance problems with SSL sites like <https://www.sourceforge.net> I have heard that win98 is particularly painful to use and that PSM does considerably better with copius ammounts of RAM (not unlike the rest of the beast). My PCs have 128 MB RAM and my Mac has 256. I've got high speed connectivity here but I've also tested SSL sites on my home machines (win2K 64 MB RAM PPro 200 and win2K on 32 MB P90) on a 28.8 connection and didn't have any performance problems that prevented me from using it. I'm not discounting your experience (I've heard the same thing from a number of testers, though mostly on win98) and I'm not saying that I can use Mozilla for all my secure needs (since some banks and commerce sites block the client alltogether) but I'm definitely not blocked from using Mozilla because of PSM. Still, I'm looking forward to the improvements that should come with PSM 2.0
