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.


#38 tar.gz

Hi, just a tiny niggle, but this has been happening for a while. The '.tar.gz' linux net installers don't actually appear to be gzipped, only tarred. It's tiny, so it doesn't need to be, but it's still a little confusing with the filename ending - you have to use tar xfv rather than tar xfvz (or it reports an error). Is this going to be fixed, either by changing the filename, or gzipping it regardless of size?

And yes, I really ought to put that in Bugzilla...
