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.

#40 Memory Leaks

I've been using the 0.9.4 candidates the last few days and unfortunately it seems that memory leaks have regressed seriously. I'm exceeding 100MB of RAM usage very frequently, while with 0.9.3 I was usually between 60-80MB.

Right before posting this, I reached 150MB and had to kill the lizard because it froze at a particular page...

Sorry I can't be of any particular help by pin-pointing reproducable ways (-I don't know of a "methodology"), but I thought you may find this useful anyway.
