Mozilla 0.9.3 Released!
Thursday August 2nd, 2001
mozilla.org today released Mozilla milestone 0.9.3, continuing to work towards a 1.0 release. Preliminary data is showing that 0.9.3 is up to 35% more stable than 0.9.2, thanks to increased focus on stability bugs this milestone. Along with that, the newest incarnation of the Modern has had some additional work since 0.9.2.
#108 0.9.3 flakiness - others' experiences?

We've had a 'stability' milestone. A 'UI polish' milestone might be nice, if merging in 0.9.2.1 isn't sufficient.
I've been using 0.9.3 for win32 since last night. It feels flakier. Nothing I can quantify yet. Well, maybe a couple of things:
1. A few times today, I've loaded a new page and seen the name of the *previous* server in the status bar (as in 'Connecting to ...').
2. Trying to quit from -turbo. Kill the app with File->Quit ... um, no. Go to 'Exit' on the systray icon. Whoops, musta picked the wrong 'Exit', because Task Manager still shows a mozilla.exe holding on to 60MB memory. (Though I did set my memory cache to 32MB.) Kill it there. *Now* it restarts.
4. A window that decided to stop responding to the keyboard at all. Other Mozilla windows were fine, but this one just didn't care ...
(For 4., it should be noted that I have messed with the chrome a bit, changing the Ctrl-Q for Quit to Ctrl-Shift-Q, as per Bug 52821 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=52821> . Dunno how fragile that chrome is.)
Is anyone else seeing the above?
I suspect I'll be giving 0.9.2.1 a go when it shows up - presumably Netscape will have done a *lot* of work on polish.
And I will eagerly await said changes being merged back in :-)
