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.
#18 Where are you, Mozilla ?

Needless to say, this milestone is indeed a great one. It seems that libpr0n along with the new outliner widget & cache have really done wonders. However, it seems the history has slowed down a bit (related to bug 66907 ?), but as I haven't tried any nightly for a while, and as don't use that feature much it's rather hard to know if this behaviour is new or not.
The startup speed is very impressive, too, but... Where has gone the mozilla splashscreen ? I rather miss it :).
