Mozilla 0.9.1 Released

Thursday June 7th, 2001

mozilla.org released milestone 0.9.1 today, which continues to move Mozilla towards the 1.0 release. New features include Bi-directional text support, LDAP Autocomplete in mail, new combined taskbar, an overhaul of the Modern skin with all new colors and buttons, and a slew of performance and stability fixes, with over 30 of the topcrash bugs fixed.

Builds can be found on mozilla.org's Releases Page for Linux, Windows, and Macintosh.

Milestone 0.9.2 will be a special stability milestone, which will only have two weeks of 'open' checkins before ramping down for another release. The mozilla.org drivers will control the checkins during the two weeks, so the tree will have some time to recover from the large landings over the last few months. This will also give vendors a good point to use for their releases.

Loading Mozilla.exe -turbo at startup is great if you've got an 'always on' Internet connection, but not so great if you've got a dial-up connection like me.

On my system, the preloader loads silently, but up pops the Windows Dial-up Networking connection dialogue (it comes up whenever an app tries to use a network connection when one is not present). And if I press Cancel I get a Mozilla alert saying that it couldn't locate uk.yahoo.com (my home page).

What Mozilla needs is a -offline option that would force it to load in offline mode. This could be used in combination with -turbo to make my life easier.
