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.

My opera related comments were solely concerned with the fact that there's no simultaneous release of Opera on all the platforms it supports (opera for Linux is just out of beta now), the code isn't as cross platform as Mozilla's. In the short term this has lessened development time, but Mozilla aimed higher than that so it took longer.

Like I said in the post Opera does the small fast web browser role well enough that the people who don't like IE have a choice, Ultimately I like XP toolkit, I also like the fact it can be embedded into native applications (galeon, kmeleon, etc), why should the Mozilla team have written a small lightweight browser when there was one already out there, they've built a platform, it's took longer than many expected but I like the result.

I just hopw enough commercial projects adopt it too.
