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.

Yeah, but the thing is: First, you should never start writing a tech book until you sign a contract for it. You could be wasting your time. Second, I'm not a high-end Mozilla engineer, nor do I want to be at this point. I could probably coauthor the book, but probably wouldn't want to attempt to write it myself.

'sides, it's not clear there's a market until Mozilla becomes popular as a technology. There was a Netscape Press book on Mozilla, and I think they haven't sold all that well. Indeed, the whole Netscape Press line is all but forgotten at Hungry Minds (formerly IDGB). It's a depressing time for would-be Netscape authors, and it's AOL's fault (they're not really pushing Netscape yet). Hopefully, this will all change soon.
