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.


#86 That -turbo thing needs to display the splash

Think about it -- you run mozilla -turbo and you have no idea how long it takes until the preloader has finished its job. (Aside from watching the HD lights).

I think that the preloader is the best time to display the splashscreen, which will show, and users will expect it, exactly what is loading. I don't really like having the preloader run, and not have any feedback about what is going on.

Other programs do the same thing -- McAfee antivirus, ZoneAlarm etc.

Of course, we'll then need a -quiet option to turn off the splashscreen.
