"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.


#38 Questions more than answered.

Yes I think 2 of my 3 questions were more than answered by the rude, arrogant, ignorant, insulting, ill-conceived post from Nemo_NX.

The answer to the first question is "No, bug 22642 is not very serious. Nemo_NX is just more of a jerk than I thought he was."

The answer to my last question is " Nemo_NX has not fixed any bugs because not only can he not write C++ code, but also he does not even have enough programming knowledge to properly evaluate the complexity of a bug."

But the post provided a lot more information than that.

Despite his admitted inability to write any C++, JavaScript, XML, or CSS code, Nemo_NX still apparently considers himself qualified to rate and berate the programming skills of people who can actually write code and who are making real contributions to the Mozilla project.

Of course new questions come up. Like how can someone feel justified in being so obnoxious and ungrateful to the people working to develop a free next generation web browser?

Although it is helpful to have people find and document bugs, it does not help to have people bitching and whining; profanity certainly doesn't help any either.

If you are unable to write code and you are incapable of learning to write code, then have some respect for those who can. If you want to motivate others to give more immediate attention to your pet bugs, why not offer a reward for whoever provides a patch? I would think $100 would give some of the volunteer developers some more incentive to focus on the IE favorites folder issue; I don't think being an asshole is doing your cause any good.
