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.

Maybe I should explain this a little more. I run nightlies almost exclusively and have been experiencing the worst builds in months (for me) over the weekend. Mozilla crashed during normal browsing which it hadn't for ages, it misrendered, it keeps stealing focus, I stumbled over a few pages that come up blank, mailnews was unusable. 0.9.3 has been working better than this (for me). So I am just doing my job - testing mozilla and giving feedback here - so that you can do your job - deciding when to release the next milestone. You are doing your job quite well, I could probably improve by sticking to mine and not try to meddle with yours.
