mozilla.org Releases 0.9.2.1

Tuesday August 14th, 2001

mozilla.org today released the source code for 0.9.2.1, which is the code that matches Netscape 6.1. This comes from the 0.9.2 branch, and is being made available both as part of the MPL license requirement, and as a way for third parties to easily use it to write compatible plugins and addon features to Netscape 6.1, as well as Mozilla.

I believe the layoffs are only in the server division. When Netscape first started the server software was the cash cow. When AOL bought Netscape, the server divisions of Netscape and Sun were basically merged to form iPlanet (I imagine because AOL has little interest in server software). According to something I read on CNET, a third of the iPlanet employees are currently Netscape people and after the layoffs it will be around 20% (assuming Sun doesn't also lay off any workers - from what I understand the venture's not doing as well as hoped). So I don't think Mozilla will be affected.

Of course this is only my understanding and I'm often wrong so this may all be incorrect.
