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.

Ooops. Sorry. I forgot in your world you want companies to wait to the end of the quarter to buy companies, offer new services, and add worth, because then you would call them 'profitable'. So no, you're wrong. Acquisitions count for some things and not for others. Some call things profitable if their capital gains and income outway outgoings, some ignore capital gains. Either way you look at it is semantic, though - Redhat have made money, are selling enough products to pay for what they do, etc. You're also forgetting that income from bought companies tends not to topple over in various measures to the company that acquired them until a quarter (or even two) later. Luckily you're not an investment banker, because that professsion works on less simplistic grounds.
