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 remember when the source code was first released and how excited I was about the possibilities. It was crappy 4.x based code. Then Netscape/mozilla decided to rewrite the rendering engine from scratch. And the entire UI. And the networking code. And who knows what else was rewritten from scratch. And it was still very crappy. Now it was getting a little better and Netscape 6 was released and there were a few people who said they used mozilla as their main browser? Yeah right. So I kept on using Netscape 4.7x (I have IE 5.5 and 6 but only use it for windows update) until mozilla was usable! And now I can say it is. It rarely crashes and it is pretty responsive. Is it perfect? No but darnit it's much better than what I've been living with all these years. I can finally resize a window without the browser reloading on me :) Plus I love the fact that I can create my own keywords for bookmarks. So now I am committed to testing the browser fulltime because it is also my fulltime browser.
