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 also don't want to be cynical but really, if version numbers were to reflect quality and features, Netscape 6 should have been called 3.5.

Personally I think Netscape might want to release a 6.5 based on 0.9.1 or 0.9.2 since there's so much improvement over 0.6 that Netscape 6.0 was based on. If 1.0 is much delayed, like it seems now, they will probably create a 7.0 based on it, but such a browser wouldn't be released until Q1/2002 anyway so why not throw in a 6.5 as soon as possible to "get rid of" 6.0? I think it makes a lot of sense. I remember the early 4.x series (up until around 4.06) and they were of *really* bad quality.. Tho still not as bad as 6.0.. 4.5 was a good move by Netscape and 6.5 could be too, even if it's not based on Mozilla 1.0
