Update on 0.9.4
Friday September 7th, 2001
We asked Asa for a quick status on 0.9.4's status, which was for release this weekend, and here's what he had to say:
"Mozilla 0.9.4 daily branch builds are looking good. The mozilla.org Drivers have decided to get some additional coverage on the new "-turbo" mode, and we have added a few days to get it turned on by default in the win32 installer builds (don't worry, you can still uncheck the checkbox in the install routine). This and a few other late fixes have us targeting early to the middle of next week for the release. We're hoping for a good round of builds Monday, and barring any unforeseen problems, release soon after. Any help testing "-turbo" over the weekend and on Monday is greatly appreciated (you all have Bugzilla accounts, right?). The sooner we can find any problems or prove it's working the sooner we'll have our Milestone release."
Preliminary testing is showing -turbo to be a very solid new feature, so with a small amount of testing over the weekend, it should be good to go anywhere from Tuesday on.

Just consider that if the bug get's spammed with a lot of "yeah, fix this" comments that the people actually working on the bug are going to start ignoring the comments and might miss something important. Bug comments should not contain advocacy and "me too" statements because they make it harder for the developers and QA to actually read throught the bug and work toward a fix. Trust me. Vote for the bug but do not fill it with a bunch of "please fix this" and "this is the worst bug" comments. If you do then you risk driving away the people that would otherwise be fixing it.
