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.

"I've once seen images being drawn with black horizontal lines at first, then when the page was loaded (and presumably the entire image) the black lines were filled in. 'fraid i can't reproduce this, i've seen it once on one page.. but i cant remember the url :/"
That's interlaced GIFs. It fills in with black lines instead of stretching the known pixels to fit (nearest-neighbor interpolation). That's not a bug per se, just an unattractive way of implementing interlacing. Nearest-neighbor interpolation is covered by this bug: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76703>
For the bug of the stripes remaining, or appearing later, check this bug: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=73972>
