Also, MozillaZine readers might be interested in my pair of tutorials on IBM developerWorks giving techniques on bridging XPCOM to GNOME's Bonobo (1)(2). Free registration required."

As a matter of interest, what features / improvements are waiting before the release of 1.0, or for 1.0 Release Candidate?

I think we're pretty close here.

Believe it or not, I\'m pretty sure 1.0 will come out on whatever release date following the fixing of all mozilla1.0 targeted bugs. Of course they always reserve the right to move a bug back to a latter release.

There's a document at mozilla.org explaining what needs to be completed before 1.0 is released.

Newer builds have a really cool -server command-line option. It preloads Mozilla in invisible mode (at startup for instance). Then when you click on mozilla.exe, a window pops up in a fraction of a second. Then only problem so far is that when you open moz the second time it comes up with a blank window instead of the homepage.

Really cool.
