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.


#116 Re: Mozilla cache still not optimal?

This has to do, I think, with memory caching as opposed to disk caching. Mozilla does have a memory cache, so it should be able to flip back and forth between pages as fast as the other browsers.

It is interesting, though, that Mozilla's memory cache is still disabled by default on installation (see Debug in prefs). Turning it on does seem to improve things slightly, but it possible it's off by default because it's still being worked on. So, try turning it on, but be sure to turn it back off if you have any problems.
