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.

Builds are currently available for Linux, Windows and Mac, on mozilla.org's download page. Expect other platforms to show up by the end of the week.

The next planned milestone is 0.9.1, for which the tree will close on May 23, and will be released a week or so following that date. Any milestone from this point forward has the possibility of becoming 1.0, and everyone is working hard to get the bug count down to make that happen.

I got a question for you. Wtf is with the import IE favorites directory on the file menu and the Personal toolbar? The file menu one won't even show any subdirectories and basically shows me a list of bookmarks on the web page viewing area. Is this a new feature or something? Also, I can't go to a web page when I click on any of the links in there. All I get on the screen is this --> [InternetShortcut] URL=<http://www.mozilla.org/> Modified=40072008219EC001EF

with the URL on the address bar looking like this --> file:///C|/WINDOWS/Favorites/7%20Total%20Slag/mozilla.org.url

However the bookmarks on the side panel work just fine. Is this a known bug or is something terribly wrong with my user profile that I make sure to delete before each new build of Mozilla? I'm also being bugged all the time with a pop-up asking if I want to change my internet shortcuts to use Mozilla instead of IE. I've said "yes", "no", and "cancel". Nothing has worked to get rid of that damn pop-up. :(
