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.

to tell for example me that QA is not fun even if I love it? Who knows better what is fun for or I? It's still me so shut just up.

Just one question: wherefrom do you have your numbers? How do you know that for example Komodo has no significant market share?

How do you know that say Red Hat or SuSE does not get any money from open source distribution even if they actually yield profits?

How do you know that open source does not work even if KDE and Gnome beat every single Desktop out there in terms of not only skinability and visual effects but in good software design, good component model and just supporting my work?

And at last: it doesn't matter what you say about the quality of Mozilla. I'll continue using it cause it is the most stable browser I've seen yet (this mean time between failure you say that it doesn't care you know...), has some functionality that I would miss in some other browser, looks best of all and supports my vision of a standardized web.
