Full Article Attached Upcoming Mozilla Tree Plans

Friday June 1st, 2001

Chris Blizzard, a member of the 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.

Along these same lines, the current milestone, 0.9.1, was branched yesterday, and looks to be quite good. Expect nightly builds of the branch to start today or tomorrow, leading up to the final builds.

Well, recently, there was the one about Neoplanet ceasing to support Mozilla. Then there was the one about AOL going back to talking with Microsoft about continuing using IE instead switching to Mozilla after all - which is possibly the worst thing that happen to Mozilla (being "dumped" by the company that pays for the project). There has also been no information about adoption rates, bug trends, regressions etc., which are all very serious issues for the Mozilla project. I'd like to see comparisons and benchmarks with other browsers; Opera, IE 5.5, IE 6.0 beta to see where Mozilla really stands and what kind of progress is taking place and if things are looking bad, then we need to talk about the issues and address them, just like when the NS4 rendering engine was dropped in favor of Raptor / NGLayout.

I'm not asking for MozillaQuest style reporting where everything is made to sound like the world is going to end. I also don't want Mozilla BASHING. All I'm asking for is good discussion about all Mozilla issues - good AND bad.
