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.

Story one, part of <http://www.mozillazine.or…alkback.html?article=2002> .

Story two, not a story. If you want us to each day say "more bugs filed" then that's just silly. There are two factors at work here. One, more people are using Mozilla, and that is driving the number of bugs higher, which comes into play with Two, the quality of bugs is dropping. I have a hard time when people keep moaning about bug count numbers taking them at all serious. Use the product. Thats how you know if it's good or not. Not by the bugs filed by others.

Story 3, I haven't seen any data on this, nor has anyone submitted it. The site works on the basis of either I find news, or someone submits it. If both of those methods come up with no hits, you won't see news on the site. Sorry, I can't work magic.
