"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.


#54 My awesome solution to ALL our problems!

The biggest problem we have with Mozilla are the bugs, right? Well, I just thought of a real simple minded patch to Bugzilla that really ought to help a lot.

I do not know why someone did not think of this before! It is so simple minded! Can you tell from my exclamation points, how thrilled and proud I am that I have thought of such a brilliant solution?!!?!

All that needs to be done is to add a text field on the Bugzilla bug form where Nemo_NX can type in a few lines in English about how the bug should be fixed and then when he hits the submit button, just have Bugzilla automatically generate the code for Nemo_NX's patch!! That's it!

Once that has been added, bugs can be eliminated in hours or even minutes instead of days, weeks, or months. New features can be added as quickly as Nemo_NX can type!

It should probably eventually be modified so that people other than Nemo_NX can fix bugs too and maybe we should not limit it to English only, but those issues can be addressed later. :) Now honestly, how long would it take to do something so simple? However, I guess I can wait till 1.0 for it to be implemented.
