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.

"as i said, it's not about development, its about marketing."

If it is about marketing, then you should agree with me, it should be called 7.0. But as I said before, I am not that cynical, I do believe the numering system should reflect significant improvements/rewrites and there has been significant rewrites in the code since Netscape 6/Mozilla 0.6. like new cache, imlib, the upcoming preloader, PSM2, Gopher, Outliner, View manager, etc, etc and of course Modern 3 >> I think changes in the user UI or perceived changes should nevre occur as decimal point release but at a full point release. Well enough of me repeating myself. I don't want to sound like JTK sophism :-)
