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.

Companies often reports conditional profitability based on, for instance, ignoring "one-time non-repeatable expenses." There are SEC standards for accounting in annual and quarterly reports. These standards were created in order to eliminate ambiguity and number-fudging, and to give investors a reasonable standard for evaluation. Under the SEC standards of accounting, Red Hat is not profitable. Its statements indicate that it does expect to become profitable this year, though. If it achieves that goal, we can then look at how much Mozilla contributed compared to how much it cost, though some degree of guesswork would be involved.
