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.


#32 Speed?

I think the main problem for mozilla now is not the stability but the speed. Mozilla is great but *very* slow! It takes about 4 seconds to open a new navigator window on my PII-400 for example (linux version).

I don't where this comes from... Maybe part of it comes from the compiler switches (-O0 -g2 vs -O3)? Or to the amount of debugging messages and asserations? If so, it'll corrected easly in the 1.0 release, but if it's a more critical problem... hum... I think you should concentrate on it.

Good luck, Mozilla team!
