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.

The most loathsome bug in recent mozilla history - windows stealing focus from each other (<>) - is rearing its ugly head again (<>). This severely impairs the browsing experience. 0.9.4 should not be released with this bug since no milestone should feel worse than its predecessor. There is a stop-gap patch available which should be applied if no better solution can be found in a short timeframe. The original bug 77675 had over 200 votes and around 50 duplicates. 0.9.3 fixed this to everyones great relief. Let us not go through this again.

People, please go vote for this bug (<http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…howvotes.cgi?voteon=97067>) and express your feelings on the matter.
