"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.

Rushing a release would be just the wrong thing for web developers. If it's not solid, if I'm going to have to constantly write special case code to work around its gaps and quirks, then you have made my life harder by releasing it, not easier. The only saving grace of the Netscape 6.x releases is that no one is using them and so I do not need to support them. If I did, my life on the web would be at least twice as hard as it is. If Mozilla 1.0 comes out in a rushed, broken state, then web developers everywhere will rue the day it was even conceived.
