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.

"Both Netscape and Microsoft did the right thing and deferred to the W3 on markup languages like HTML and XML. Why they've both obstinately refused to do so with JavaScript/JScript/whatever (ECMAScript? Yeah, right. Don't make me laugh. Netscape knows that was a smokescreen move) is beyond me. Until there's a rigorous standard defined, JS is never going to work right."

A rigorous standard? ECMAScript *is* a rigorous standard for the JavaScript syntax, and both IE and Mozilla follow it pretty closely.

Or maybe you mean the Document Object Model, which defines the API available to embedded scripts? There's a rigorous standard for that too, from the W3C. It's the W3C Standard DOM (<http://www.w3.org/DOM/DOMTR>) level 1 (DOM1) and level 2 (DOM2).
