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.

#89 How should turbo be?

Actually the taskbar icon can be very powerful, it is not at this point. Now I know everybody works on fixing the bugs and this should be the main thing, but here is what is missing featurewise: These are mostly things that I want on the taskbar icon, without opening a netscape window. 1) When I restart the computer (or login to my account), I want the preloader for mozilla/netscape to run aumatically and display an icon in the taskbar. I hope that is done. 2) Automatic email check. I want this icon to check my emails and warn me about new emails, number of new emails etc. I want to be able to right click taskbar item and select "create new email". 3) For Netscape: I want the instant massager to login to my account automatically (similar to the real aim client). I want to be warned if people are online in the taskbar, and I want to be able to right click and select people online to send a message. 4) Multizilla is great. Not related to the taskbar though.
