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.

"No, neither of those articles confirm your false claim that "both AOL 7.0 and the new version of Compuserve are going to be based on Mozilla code." Komodo is not based on Mozilla code, though it is intended to be _compatible_ with Mozilla code. It is also compatible with Internet Explorer. It's not based on either one of them."

So what? And where's your proof to the contrary. Because you say it's so? Right.

"Further, this is unreleased internal software on which AOL has declined to comment. There's no reason to assume that Komodo will ever be released just because an alpha was leaked, or that it will be released in a form that is compatible with Mozilla."

There's no reason to assume it WON'T, either. I was offering reasons to believe otherwise than your doom and gloom projections for Mozilla, which are completely baseless.

"Would you mind not spreading misinformation about Mozilla adoption? One mistake was one thing, but two suggests something more than simple error."

Would you mind jumping in a lake? I'm not "spreading misinformation", I'm speculating. That's how people often prepare themselves for the future happenings given closed-mouthed companies.

The fact is, you have no more proof of Mozilla's pending demise than I do that AOL 7's based on Mozilla. And even if it wasn't based completely on Mozilla code, Mozilla-compatible is by far good enough for me, even if it isn't for you.
