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.


#111 mouse menu

Um.. is there any plan to make the mouse menu configurable? It seems like a good idea that you could specify what functions you can access that way - I know this isn't the place to post this sort of thing.

I'm just annoyed at the HUGE list that pops up (right click on an image that's a link in a frame and you'll see what I mean). It seems like simplicity is the way to go, but I doubt everyone would agree what should be on the menu. I mean, the mouse menu is supposed to be for convenience and easy access, but when I have to sift through a ton of options that change depending on what I click on; it's anything but convenient. I find it especially aggravating in something like Netscape 4 where I end up opening a page on composer instead of in a new window - I've never even used composer. For now I'm going to have to look through some jar files, but this gets old rather fast.

Other than that I'm fairly impressed (with the excepetion of not being able to open new windows).
