"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.

Yes, Mozilla has a number of outstanding bugs, and I have a list myself of bugs that I pray will be fixed soon. But keep in mind that we're still at least 10 weeks, at the soonest, from a 1.0 release (based on a five week per milestone plan with two more milestones to go, not counting 0.9).

Also, sometimes bug reports got for months without any updates or discussion, but without warning it gets fixed the next day. The moral here is that any progress mentioned in bug reports does not necessarily reflect the actual progress of getting the bug fixed. Of course, this is not always the case.

I'm not trying to be completely idealistic here, since I've had my doubts from every now and then. So give a little time, wave your hands around aggressively if you think that a bug isn't getting enough love, but don't go straight and immediately insult the programmers since they may have a 1000 other important bugs to worry about.
