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.

The fact that it's free is nice (so is IE) but it means nothing regarding how acceptable various levels of quality are. Even if something that is free sucks only slightly more than something that costs money, I'll go with the commercial application instead. Quality is way more important than price.

The fact that is "not released" also means nothing. We're three years down the road in the project and the "release date" is nowhere in sight. It's still at a "when it's done", which is roughly six months away. It was roughly six months away two years ago. When do you suppose it's acceptable to start complaining about the quality of the project? After five years maybe?
