MozillaZine

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.

I think I should be clear about that I'm absolutely pro-Mozilla and the reason I follow MozillaZine is to keep myself up-to-date about all the issues in the project. I appreciate all the effort everyone is putting into this, including coders, qa, web site staff and the Mozilla community. We all have a common goal, which is to get a kick-ass browser!

Sometimes, it just seems to me that people are living in denial about the state of the project, which is why I'd like to see more critical discussion rather than just feel-good stories and "Mozilla rocks!" type of comments about builds that don't even have working bookmarks and crash when you click on "compose mail". Stuff like that just takes away credibility.

One of the best things that has ever happened to Mozilla was dropping the NS4 layout engine and the reason for that seems to have been mostly because of community pressure and critical comments.
