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 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.

Have you actually used any of the last ten milestone releases? Ever since 0.9.1 Mozilla has pretty much become my browser of choice for all my browsing needs, although I haven't reconfigured Outlook to use Mozilla to open http-Links, yet. This way I'm using IE 5.5 and Mozilla at estimately equal parts, and since 0.9.3 I have the definite feeling, subjective as this is, that IE crashes way more often on me than Mozilla does.

Note however, that I'm only using the Browser bit, no Mail/News or composer stuff due to company policy (Outlook).

And yes, of course, the bug curve counts! But you're making it far (far, far, far, FAAAAAR) too simple for yourself if you just put the total bug count on the Y-axis. The only thing the resulting curve really signifies is traffic. If it's steep, it only shows that the number of people actively using Bugzilla is quite high.

Please, only once, take the time to actually READ and digest one of Asa's posts word-by-word. I find it absolutely astonishing that he still manages to keep half-way calm and objective in the face of your total arrogance/ignorance/rudeness. I would never have thought it possible that one day I might feel the NEED to get personal in a technical discussion but that just goes to prove how wrong one can be... so here it is:

YOU SUCK! Oliver(feeling slightly better now)
