mozilla.org releases Mozilla Milestone 0.9.4

Friday September 14th, 2001

mozilla.org today released Mozilla Milestone 0.9.4. New to this release is the ability to disable the JavaScript window.open() method during page load and unload events. You can find more information on what's new at the release notes.

Builds are available on mozilla.org's download page(or go right to the FTP directory).

A recent post to the Mozilla builds newsgroup explains that Netscape will continue to check into the 0.9.4 branch. Work continues on the trunk toward Mozilla 0.9.5.

Yeah.. In short, it's no big secret that Netscape is going to use 0.9.4 for a Netscape-branded release. However Asa posts here as a member of the Mozilla organization, but since he is also a paid employee of Netscape he probably feels that it is inappropriate to comment on Netscape's plans and/or is obligated by contract not to comment, as Alex said. At least that's my understanding of what's going on. So all this conspiratorial talk about secrets is silly.

And even if there was some kind of secret I would echo those who say that this wouldn't corrupt Mozilla as an open-source project. Since when does "open-source" mean that everyone who uses the code has to share all their plans with the world? Where in the MPL does it say that?
