"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 agree, yes.. it will make Mozilla even better however the Windows build is awesome in both speed and stability.

The reason why I believe Mozilla 1.0 should be released asap is because Web developers could finally start using it's advanced features that will promote Mozilla (maybe this way more people will start working on the linux build :) as a solid, useable browser. Mozilla on itself is hardly known to the common user, and if they hear its somehow related to Netscape 6.. heh. But if they simply hear "Next Generation Browser Mozilla 1.0 Released" instead of 0.9.1 or anything under 1.0 it will provoke a very conservative response.

From a personal point of view and I'm sure many other people who come here feel that way it doesn't matter when Mozilla 1.0 is released, we'll all keepon using Mozilla Nighties for the latest and greatest. But fact it that most people havent yet heard of Mozilla and wont until one of the popular sites they visit mention it.

Okay, allot of rambling and yet I've said very little so I'll stop here, hope somehow I made my point whatever that was :)
