Mozilla 0.9 Branched, First 0.9.1 Checkin

Wednesday April 25th, 2001 branched today in preparation for the Mozilla 0.9 milestone, which they are targeting at people who are embedding Mozilla in their products as their first solid beta to use. Expect for 0.9 to be released sometime this week, or early next week.

Following the branching, the fix for bug 77002 was checked in to the 0.9.1 trunk, making page load time up to 17% faster in some cases. Verifications are currently going on on the first set of pre 0.9.1 builds with the fix, which are currently up on for Windows, Linux, and Mac. Expect the tree to open within the next few hours for open checkins to 0.9.1.

Yeah, but based on the performance improvements in 0.9.1 nightlies (I timed start up and page load; startup is only 1.5-2.5 s longer than IE on my machine - which is damned good), I think it was the right decision to push back the schedule. Moz 1.0 will be a far better browser than Netscape 6.0.
