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.

About all I saw in that bug was a lot of frustration expressed by an interested end-user and Matthew Thomas (mpt)'s opinion (and WONTFIX added) that this was better than cascading menus because "you shouldn't have long menus." The only strength to mpt's response was that a fix for this *might* affect the speed of all the other menus.

Personally, I can't imagine wanting either scrolling or multiple column menus. But I'd imagine multiple column would be much faster to access because you can immediately see an entire extra column of items instead of having to scroll them into view.
