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.

"it can be triggered. e.g. if more than 10 votes given from same IP, there is a something to wonder."

So if more than 10 people from Nokia want to vote.. you'll just block the rest. Interesting. I bet everyone from Netscape come from one IP too.

"Also voting can be non-allowed to people who didn't turn on cookies (some of my friends never used a cookie in their lives)"

Easiest thing in the world to write a script that accepts cookies, votes.. then forgets the cookie and votes again, accepts the cookie so that it's allowed.. Then forgets it when it'd done voting.. and votes again.. etc.

"I agree to a comment I have read, poll should have been named "Do you hate Mozillaquest which should be hit by a bus?" "YES/YES" decisions, uh pardon... "yes/no".

Thats the freedom of speech in lizard's understanding ;-)"

Yes, unfortunately, I've found that that *IS* the freedom of speech in the lizard's understanding.. :/ "Open source, closed minds".. You've heard that before, I'm sure.
