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.

Downloading from <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> using http (Mozilla, NS4, IE) or Getright is slow. On my 64kb isdn modem, used bandwidth is constantly 0.2-0.3 of the maximum. It's not dependent on day time. Since I live in Greece, there's a long distance connection but what intrigues me is that I *never* show a connection better than the above 20%-30% of 64kbps (somwhere between 2.5 and 3 Kbytes/sec).

Best workaround for me, so far: use a download manager with segmented downloading. DLExpert par example is freeware and works fine.
