that is is a Preview Release of 6.1. I suspect they will base the official release of 6.1 on Mozilla 1.0. (At least I think they should...)

0.9.1 is stable enough, feature complete and most of the major bugs are out. They should be ok using that build as a Preview Release.

I am beginning to think people have forgotten what a beta or preview release is and is intended to be. People are all over the 'net, on Slashdot, Betanews and here complaining that Mozilla is not complete, has some bugs, etc. Of course!!

Here is what whatis.com says for 'beta test': <http://whatis.techtarget.…93,sid9_gci211654,00.html>
