"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 can't believe that 1.0 could literally be 2.5 months off. I remember "back in the day" when it was still "at least a year" (try two, them were the pre-Necko days) off. I would (nearly) stake my life that 1.0 will slip at least a few weeks, but we'll see. There's also the possibility that they'll start slapping "post 1.0" onto everything and get it out, but then, Mozilla.org doesn't really do that as much as Netscape or .6 would have been 1.0.

Anyway, I fully agree with your post. I trust that 1.0 will be in good enough shape for embedders to use (AOL s goal, evidently; they've already announced an embedded Netscape WAP browser deal with Nokia so they're likely waiting on .9.1, if not 1.0.
