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 mozilla.org 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 was trying to make people vote for this bug and raise the attention of those not running the latest nightlies and therefore experiencing the situation first hand. I think I was doing valid advocacy to push a very real and severe bug into the limelight. If we are to use the less than perfect patch available we need to voice our opinions on the matter. I cannot see why posting a very fuzzy bugreport should be okay and raising awareness on a well known issue should not. BTW the number of votes on the bug is increasing by the minute..

Sorry Fabian I do not see the error in my ways.
