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.

>I've seen the same extrapolating tendencies in many comments > to strauss' posts..

The main difference being that you are describing yourself as a supporter of the project and do actually offer constructive criticism most of the time, however offensive this may seem to some people.

strauss' statements are astonishingly lacking in credibility because there's no hint that he has actually USED Mozilla anytime in the last 18 months.

His excessive bitching about bug numbers almost makes one wonder if he and mangelo might in fact be the same person after all.
