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.

It's kinda lame that this opinion persists. The Linux browser has a lot more traction than the Windows and browsers, because Linux has no credible alternative to Mozilla, while Windows and Mac do. And the Linux user community naturally attracted to open projects like Mozilla. Finally, Linux distributions are the only operating systems ever to ship with Mozilla. I don't see Microsoft and Apple shipping Mozilla in the near future.

So, my point is that it kinda sucks to just come out and suggest that Linux is a small part of the Mozilla community, and that their topcrash bugs are somehow marginal. Ater all, there have been 175 Windows-specific topcrash bugs.
