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.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with the markup in any of the test cases and the bug has been around since January. It's a simple case of the layout not being handled properly. I take an interest because it affects me personally, but I'm not the one that originally reported it, and I've seen three more sites in recent weeks that have been affected by it, which is what drew my attention back to it. Obviously, when people are making valid sites that work in other major browsers like Opera and IE, it's not a "Moz has to support crappy markup," issue. It's a "Moz isn't fully supporting valid markup," issue.

As more and more sites move to these sorts of CSS/P-based sites, the browser which is supposed to be the most compliant ever had better learn to support them. Ignoring it and blaming it on "crappy markup" won't make it go away. That kind of attitude just leads to a product that everyone dismisses as a wannabe contender to IE.
