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.

"I also think you vastly over estimate the impact of AOL. AOL is very weak anywhere outside the USA so the only place you can expect any considerable amount of AOL-Mozilla users would be in the USA, and there too, we're talking in the range of 5% of users or so. And that's 5% of US users - not worldwide."

AOL has around 30 million users and in total the Internet has 400 million users or thereabouts, so if AOL switched to Mozilla and everyone upgraded, Mozilla would have at least a 7.5% market share. So I think you are slightly underestimating AOL's reach. AOL is less dominant outside the USA, but it still has some impact. Here in the UK it's the second largest Interent access provider.
