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 take your point about the Communicator 5 code being dropped, but even after that happened, the new product (based on Gecko and XPFE) was still referred to as Communicator 5 and the user agent string still says Mozilla/5.0. So Netscape could have released Netscape 6 as Netscape 5. I think they probably would have if it had been finished earlier.

"I even found an official 5.0 beta at Netscape's site once, it had a Guide button, I think, with a signpost on it."

Some versions of 4.x had a Guide button (with signpost icon). It was removed from later versions (around 4.7?). I believe it was replaced by the My Netscape button, but I could be wrong. I think I once read that there was a hidden pref to replace the My Netscape button with the old Guide button, but my mind could be playing tricks on me.
