Mozilla 0.9 Released!
Monday May 7th, 2001
mozilla.org today released milestone 0.9, which moves us a big step closer to a 1.0 release. The 0.9 release contains some of the largest changes in quite some time, with rewrites of the imglib, memory and disk cache, message view in mail, bookmark manager, Personal Security Manager 2 (PSM2), and the help viewer. Many of these rewrites have helped greatly enhance Mozilla's performance since 0.8.1, with the Mail front end rewrite and PSM2 being two of the largest improvements. For those of you who use Java, the JVM is now loaded on first use, rather than when you first start up, leading to much quicker startup.

Faster? How / why? Are milestone builds compiled as releases rather than debug builds and thus have all compiler optimizations turned on and all debug info off or why is it faster? I can't think of any other reason, since there shouldn't be any performance improvements in 0.9 that aren't in the trunk.
