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.

You're probably right about the feature "count". I said quality and features tho, not just features. Mail & News, which is as important as the browser for me, is a step back in most areas, features, quality AND speed. There's no S/MIME, folders are *really* slow (Netscape 6.0 - the new outliner widget fixed it), the editor is buggy etc. Of course there's multiple accounts so.. *shrug*

The 6.0 browser surely has a higher feature count than 4.x had, but again, there are lots and LOTS of bugs there, which makes the whole thing feel pretty weak, and like I said - I was talking about features AND quality.
