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.

"The discussion was about the outside adoption of the project. Is it going anywhere? Is anyone going to use it?"

Only the largest computer company in the world: IBM. IBM is using and actively developing it. Mozilla is the current browser they support for OS/2. IBM has been doing the development work for Bidirectional text (BiDi) for Hebrew and Arabic. I doubt they're doing it just for fun.

As someone else mentioned, RedHat will also be including Mozilla.
