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.

In the builds newsgroup about a week or so ago there was a comparison between Windows/Linux/Mac with IE/NS 4.7/NS 6 and recent builds. I think the figures were roughly compared with NS 4.7:

* NS 6 was 4 times slower, * Recent builds 2 times slower, * IE twice as fast.

Although there was some differences with platforms. Mac vs Windows and Windows vs Linux.
