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.

I'm not only seeing strange performance discrepancies among different platforms but even between similarily configured Windows and Linux (don't know about Mac or Solaris) boxes even with the same hardware and only a little different OS version (like Win95 / Win98).

I really can't figure out what the problem is, but it seems quite widespread. You can often read things like "it's so slow on my machine XXX" and and answer saying "I've got also XXX and its fast as hell". Weird.
