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.

Have you actually used IE5 for OSX? At the moment, it's much buggier than Mozilla is. (As I'm sure you know, OSX is also a Unix, but some might think that your message implied that the NeXT-like operating system is a descendant of Mac's System 7/OS8/OS9 family).

A lot of this is a failure of patience on the part of the VC community. If Eazel had been able to keep the money flowing for a year or two more, we'd see a very easy to use Linux desktop.

I have to ask where these figures come from. Sure, among home users and commercial users, these figures could be right (*could be*), but among academic users there's more balance. One certainly can't just count the number of CDs purchased, or the number of desktops which come with a particular system preloaded (despite the methodologies used in some recent, highly-publicized studies).
