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.

Strauss, Don't take me wrong, but I think that you are being unfair on the mozilla project. I have been watching mozilla for a while, about two years from now. I think mozilla's main aim has been to "release the product when it's ready", although I was quite eager to know a release date it wasn't really there. Yes there were some vague arguments like in the third or forth quarter of 2001, but these have been speculations, the release will be determined mainly by when it's ready for 1.0 Also you have many times complained about the quality of mozilla, my opinion differing from yours there, bashing the efforts of volunteers to make mozilla better does not help improve the product. Download builds, help with duplicate bugreports, write bugreports, but just saying "mozilla is bad" will not improve the product.

Nevertheless, long live mozillazine, somewhere where we can all freely express our opinions!
