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.

I would disagree on that. Even marketing has some limits to it. Skipping version 5.0, and now jumping from 6.01 to 7.0 in less than a year is a too much and may look silly too many people (many thought that skipping 5.0 was silly and confusing, do we want to go to 7.0 so soon?).

Besides, your major point is that a bigger number would suggest indicate a bigger change and could draw users' attention. A .5 jump from 6.0 to 6.5 is pretty significant, and I think will draw many users attention (plus I will be advertising it like crazy once it comes out on my sites).

Of course, the final decision is left to Netscape Marketing, not the mozilla.org community. It's not the most important detail in the world that we should be worried about (there are far more pressing issues in Mozilla), but 6.5 is very reasonable.
