Mozilla 0.9.2 Released

Friday June 29th, 2001

mozilla.org released milestone 0.9.2 today, which many at mozillaZine believe to be the best candidate for a 1.0 release yet, from an end user point of view. New items since 0.9.1 include 25 more top crash bugs fixed (as measured by Talkback) along with a new context sensitive help system, a new view source window, and a new preloader for windows called 'Turbo'.

You can find Macintosh, Linux, and Windows builds on mozilla.org's releases page, as well as updated release notes.

Following 0.9.2 are two releases, 0.9.2.1, which will be taken from Netscape's branch after they complete their release from it, and 0.9.3 which will be taken from a branch off the trunk, and will not be under the same drivers checkin control, as previously reported.

Yeah, but when I change the colors/fonts/sizes of my Windows (which I can do from the Display control panel), every one of my Windows apps changes with it .. except for Mozilla. I use a pretty warm grey for my Windows, so it's not cold at all, especially when compared to the cold dingy grey that Modern uses right now.

I want my Windows apps to behave like Windows apps. Themeability is great, and certainly Modern is looking cleaner all the time, but the point is the end-user *needs* consistency, and defaulting the distribution to start with an interface that looks *nothing* like the two standard interfaces the majority of end-users (who know nothing about themes) are used to using means you're breaking the consistency and implanting the idea that Mozilla is a "foreign" application, not a "standard" or "real" one.
