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.

You are clearly confused. Netscape was based on an extension of the 0.9.2 branch. This was never hidden. Netscape continued to check into that public branch long after Mozilla released 0.9.2. The point on that branch that coincided with the release of Netscape 6.1 was tagged and called 0.9.2.1. 0.9.2.1 was in no way an upgrade to 0.9.3. 0.9.3 had over 500 bugfixes that 0.9.2.1 did not have and 0.9.2.1 had maybe one or two 'bandaid' fixes that we rejected on the trunk because it wasn't the right way to do it.
