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.

I can't say your intentions about the project are unconcerned or even bad. But there is an evident unbalance between the positive and negative criticism of yours on the "work of the others". I would guess that you either don't have real expectations from the project or you are not aware of the displeasing effect of this kind of criticism.

There's no professional (or deeply involved amateur) in any part of the world that would feel happy when his enormous, ambitious, hard work is welcomed with continuous negative comments. Developpers, testers, documentation people, managers, they all need some encouraging comments from time to time. Especially when a lot of good work has been done and they have to face the fierce competition of Microsoft. I hope I made it clear what I mean because english is not my native language. No offensive intentions, anyway.
