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 -turbo argument option really is the hightlight of this milestone. I have set a shortcut in the startup folder of the start menu on Windows so that Mozilla is started when I boot. When I click on the shortcut, it starts as fast as IE4!!! I never would have thought that preloading it would make such a huge difference.

This totally takes IE's speed advantage away. Hopefully, this option will be the default install in Netscape and Moz 1.0. We need to be able to turn it on/off from the advanced tab in the preferences dialog box.
