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.

Fastest growing OS measured how? Compared to what it used to be I bet, because there's no way that it's growing faster than say Windows 2000 in absolute numbers. Linux has been said to be "the fastest growing OS" for a few years now and it still has less than 1% market share. That kind of growth is irrelevant since any new OS (like Mac OS X) will get astronomical relative growth figures for the first couple of months or years.

I would be majorly surprised if Linux gets more than 3% (of the whole market) market share in the next 3 years. If that holds true, it means that Mozilla only gets 3% market share form the Linux user base even if every single Linux user would be running it.

Windows and Macintosh is where the battle is fought.
