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.


#157 Europe - Sydney

Yes AOL reach is limited, it's also just the second largest ISP in Germany.

But for example the bigest German one T-Online (8 Mio), is quite Netscape friendly, it always ships the two main browsers on it's CDs

Germans are quite big contributers in open-source (it's fancy there) like SUSE and big parts of KDE, though they surely will adopt a netscape 6.1to5.

Terra-Lycos, and Tiscali are other big one in Europe, don't know if they are netscape friendly.

I'm living right now in Sydney, and Australia is fully in Microsoft hand.

Maybe I'm wrong but i don't think that netscapes position outside of englisch speaking countries is so bad.

A scenario might be: If AOL can show how much Commerical-Blinking-Sidebars-Traffic-Causing one can make with a mozilla based browser other big isp might get jeallous and switch too.

Do anyone have numbers from other countries?
