"Mozilla.org recently updated the Mozilla Roadmap to reflect the crash landings that necessitated the 0.8.1 release. Groups embedding Mozilla are encouraged to target 0.9.1 for their beta branch point. 0.9.1 is currently slated for release May 25th."

The tree has closed for 0.9, so expect to start seeing 0.9 test build on ftp.mozilla.org next week at some time.


#29 Quicker bookmark/link loading

Seems someone has been listening to your cries, current loading time for bookmark/links has improved greatly.

I really think Mozilla should pushout a 1.0 release after 0.9 and not 0.9.1 Mozilla works fine on my measly Pentium 60 with 96 RAM on debian linux. Page loading is as it always has been very good, startup time is acceptable thouh slightly longer than Netscape (both with java enabled), window creation time is still slow, same with rightclick popup menu on pages, GUI has become very responsive. If my pathetic computer can make Mozilla preform to my liking then I'm sure the majority of people using PII-P4s will have few complaints about Mozilla's speed.

Currently builds are good, Back and Forward buttons have died again and I've had some problems with losing text when typing here modifying it before i post.

Hmm, I find it hard to imagine Mozilla could performance wise become much better but apparently there is still room to improve. After the regressions are worked out and any serious bugs fixed in the currently nightly (I'm just hoping whatever speed improvements made it into todays build will make it into 0.9) then I'll be a very satisfied surfer.

Thank you for the great work.
