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.


#133 Mozilla a "product"?

More than once, I heard people insist that Mozilla is not a product, i.e. Mozilla is not being developed for end users. Doesnt that puzzle people a lot? Mozilla has is a full functioning browser+email+more, has devoted users, and when a new (pre 1.0)release comes out, that hits the news. So in a sense, it cannot really deny being product.

When NS 6.0 came out I tried both NS and Mozilla and there was not one reason why I would want the NS version. I am pretty sure this will be the case with the next NX release. They put stuff in I dont like -- all kinds of predefined commercial homepages and stuff.

I understand that Netscape invests a lot of money in the development of Mozilla and they want something for that. But still ... isnt that a strange situation, and wont people be puzzled by it?
