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.

Sometimes I wonder how priorities are driven within Mozilla. At the moment it seems to be resource driven with all the rendering and program load speed increases but no print preview on a 0.9.1 release! imho im not a developer) more effort should be given to stability and functionality rather than speed increases. For example Mozilla *still* can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t print a table that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s longer than a page length - see bug 80966 which was defined as a dupe of 66804 (which is supposed to be fixed) - but is it? I can understand that the nearer we get to release 1 the more exciting the imrovements in Mozilla are and there have been many major improvements recently but please do not lose sight that Mozilla is not meant for develepors but must be able to provide \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"ordinary\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" users with the basic functionality required. I think that the work so far in an open source environment has been incredible please keep up the good work.
