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.


#30 OFFTOPIC: AOL and Microsoft hate each other again

The talks between AOL and Microsoft regarding the inclusion of Steppenwolf (AOL 6 for Windows XP) on the Windows XP CD have broken down.

AOL refused to make AOL Instant Messenger compatible with Windows (MSN) Messenger (AOL are never going to give in on this are they?) and also refused to replace RealPlayer with Windows Media Player (probably because they don't want to give Microsoft another market to monopolise).

I got this from my favourite pro-MS site, Paul Thurrot's WinInformant. <http://www.wininfo.com/> The most surprising thing the article says is that "[Netscape] has been developing Internet client software since the sale [of Netscape Communications to AOL] that is technically as sophisticated as IE." So, that means he thinks Mozilla's good then? :-)

Paul Thurrot also says that "it's likely that AOL will move to Netscape technology as soon as possible." So it looks like AOL isn't going to abandon Mozilla after all.
