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.


#11 We're Not A Browser Company

"The browser is a crown jewel. However, six months from now, you won't consider Netscape to be a browser company," Netscape President Jim Bankoff told Reuters in an interview --ZDNet

I just read this on ZDNet. How could AOL/Netscape say such a thing? If Netscape is planning to back away from the browser part of the company, What is going to become of Mozilla? Sure we have outside contributions, but Netscape puts a TON into Mozilla, and without it, I don't know how we'd solve much of what we have so far.

Lets hope that Netscape 6.5 blows everyone's socks off so that Mr Bankoff will rethink his statement.
