Full Article Attached 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.

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.

This is much better info than I expected to get. The main problem is, there are only a few people who help out with the site, and all have very busy jobs. 99% of the news you see here is generated by submissions. While we are working hard to improve what we have, but it takes time, and time is what we all currently have very little of.

As far as some of the stuff you brought up, I?ll try to explain. The AOL/MS stuff was a betanews story picked up by cnet and others. We haven't heard any hard facts out of either company about whether it's true or not, and until we do, we won't say anything about it. Benchmarks, bug trends and adoption rates are stuff we'd love to post, but again, have very little time to do such analysis on our own. As far as regressions and current progress goes, we rely on the build bar to get that information to you. It does a great job of keeping people up to date on what's happening, and it's one of the best-kept secrets that you can use to get a pulse on what's going on.

In closing, I ask that you not think we aren't trying to show Mozilla as something it isn't, we are merely posting what we have. We?re working hard to try and generate more homegrown stuff, but right now, we rely heavily on the community to bring its news to us.
