Upcoming Mozilla Tree Plans
Friday June 1st, 2001
Chris Blizzard, a member of the mozilla.org Drivers, has posted an update on what will be happening for the next milestone (0.9.2). Basically, checkins will require Driver approval, along with the normal review and super-review. The milestone will only be two weeks long, and will give the tree a chance to breathe a bit, following a long string of large rewrites. To read the entire message, click the full article link.
#103 Not that critical

It's not THAT critical, I don't think. Microsoft says that AOL can use IE even if they don't sign a new deal. The key is how badly AOL wants to be on the Windows XP CD, and that's really it. I think AOL also has reason to use IE while the trial is still pending review (they don't want to stack the odds in MS's favor by switching to Netscape).
In the end, I think AOL has too much riding on Mozilla not to continue funding it. In case you missed it, both AOL 7.0 and the new version of Compuserve are going to be based on Mozilla code, not to mention Netscape. Further, a deal has already been set for an WAP browser for cellphones with Nokia. Think about it. AOL gets all these different products from ONE engineering team. Mozilla's not going anywhere.
