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.
#35 Why the debugging crap?

If this is supposed to be a release, why is the debugging crap compiled in on the windows installer build?
I usually use the nightly rpm builds for linux, and they don't even have the debugging stuff built in. I thought I would try the new release on my friends computer, and they only have windows, so now I see this.
Not only does it look less "professional" to have the Debug and QA menus up there, the debugging code takes up memory and slows Mozilla down.
So who compiles these Windows builds? What gives?
