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.
#32 Thank you Mozilla!

Mozilla has been my favorite Free Software project since back at Milestone 8.
Our friendly Mozilla team has really put forth a super-human effort, and for this I thank them.
I especially love it when they fix a bug or add a feature right before I was about to report it. Example: the Java changes. I have been annoyed by Java loading at startup to the point that I disabled it altogether. I was going to write a bug report on it, but assumed the problem was in the plugin.
Thanks again, can't wait to try out the new release. All hail Mozilla!
