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.

It can take ten minutes for make to execute in each directory, let alone build anything.

The tinderboxes can build in two ways, one is to pull changes and compile those changes, which can take anywhere between ten minutes (practically no changes) and 30 minutes, the second way is a complete build, which on the fast tinderbox machines can take 45mins-1hour or more.

My machine (a K6-2 300Mhz 256Mb RAM) builds mozilla fully in around four hours. An overnight update takes normally two hours but obviously it depends greatly on how much of 'the world' needs to be rebuilt based on the changes.
