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.

You obviously missed the point of my argument. The discussion was about the outside adoption of the project. Is it going anywhere? Is anyone going to use it? I don't doubt that it's fun to work on the project. I'm doubting that anyone except the developers (within a certian margin of course) will USE the product. I also doubt that AOL pays for it because it's fun. They pay for it because they expect to get something out of it. If they don't, they won't pay for it forever. Same goes for all other companies involved. Because it's open source, it will never fully die of course, no matter what happen. If AOL stopped paying for it today, I have a hard time imagining anything short of a complete dissaster tho.
