"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.

I think we should have Mozilla 0.9.1. Adding a mere 5 weeks (tentative) to the schedule will add greatly to bug fixes, tweaks, performance, and footprint. I mean Mozilla is very good now, but there are still areas that I like to see improved, and adding Mozilla 0.9.1 would allow that.

Java shouldn't matter when it comes to startup times anymore, since "lazy loading" of plug-ins have been implemented (they are not loaded until first used).

Speaking of speed improvements, Hyatt has an interesting fix, scheduled for 0.9, in bug 77002: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=77002>
