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.

Has anyone tried Netscape 4.7x lately? It's easy to forget how dog slow Mozilla is until you try Navigator again. I've pretty much given up on Mozilla ever being usable on this P200MMX. (Yes, a dinosaur.)

It takes almost a full minute for Mozilla to start, and it takes almost 10 seconds for new windows to pop up. Browsing with Mozilla has a noticeable effect on my load average.

ugh
