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.

I personally disagree with your assessment. We've already skipped 5.0 entirely, I don't think we need any jumps like this anytime soon. Perhaps when Netscape is based on Mozilla 1.5 or 2.0 then we'll see Netscape 7.0

Just to give you some better numbers, there are over a thousand bug fixes that go into each milestone. Some very noticeable, some not nearly noticeable (many cases the "unnoticeable" bug fixes prevents "noticeable" bugs from getting fixed).

We can't really push any ideas, since this will be a Netscape Marketing decision. The open source nature of allows us to influence Mozilla's direction, but that power does not affect what Netscape decides to do.
