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.

Probably. But without the bug numbers I can't go and fix them (or agitate for them to be fixed), can I?

Several points: - Mozillazine is not the correct forum to raise questions about the direction or current state of the project. netscape.public.mozilla.* are, depending on the exact issue. If you have a big problem you think needs addressing, that you think they may have missed, <drivers@mozilla.org> would be the right place. - The question you should be asking is "do those people who are flaming me actually have any influence on the direction of the project?" Slashdot is full of trolls who flame anyone anti-Linux - it doesn't mean they represent general community views.

Please find the comment list :-)

I didn't say it was the only motive, I said it was my motive. If you want to know AOL's motives, ask AOL. But I would guess it's because otherwise they have no stick to beat Microsoft with - and a Microsoft-beating stick is a very valuable thing for a company like AOL.
