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.

Coming kinda late into this dicussion I'm surprised to see that almost no comment above refers to Chris' announcement of the changed tree plan, so here's my 2 euro-cent's worth:

I think that it's a long due and very good idea. Sure, there are lot's of nice enhancements I can think of, some of them really important (bug 22687 comes to mind), but stability should be the highest goal. A few weeks ago I stopped bug triaging because I was put off by too many crashes. No I can resume, and I'm happy to hear that Mozilla staff will try to keep the stability.

In my view, the next goals should be guided by basic browser functionality. Make usability better (e.g. focus issues, image drawing, etc.) and improve speed, if you can. That all won't give you new features, but provide a solid base where you then can plan new enhancements on. If that is the way Chris meant to proceed, the I fully agree. The development of having an increasing number of open bugs must be stopped.
