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.

Builds are available on mozilla.org's download page (or go right to the FTP directory), along with release notes.

Yes, if I understand your question.

We have a development trunk and we make builds off of the tip of that trunk usually twice a day for about 5 platforms (resulting in about 40 nightly trunk builds). When we get close to a Milestone we create a branch for some stabilization work and let the trunk race ahead. The branch might be actively developed for days or weeks leading up to a Milestone release. We usually don't take major changes on the branch so the nightly builds from the branch right before the release are very close, code-wise, to the actgual release. Nightly branch builds as well as nightly trunk builds are build optimized with debugging turned off. All binaries you get from <ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> are "release" (meaning optimized and not debug) builds.
