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.

<quote n=1>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.</quote>

<quote n="3">Well, I didn't mean the site. I meant the users.. And of course one shouldn't generalize. :)</quote>

Ok, so "the lizard" = "MozillaZine posters?" I'm not getting a "true" return on that test.

Was it a gigantic mistake for Netscape to release a browser based on a pre-1.0 Mozilla? Possibly. Has Netscape been gradually losing marketshare ever since 4.x came out because Netscape 4.x isn't as good a product as IE 4.x, 5.x, 6.x? Possibly. Is everyone who reads MozillaZine happy with the product as it is today? Definitely not. But if there's no free speech on MozillaZine, how come you're here?

As for MozillaQuest, come on, it should be obvious to you that MozillaQuest is simply a gigantic flame; even your opinion (macpeep) is higher (and it is rather better informed).
