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.

Then look at this <http://bonsai.mozilla.org…e=&cvsroot=%2Fcvsroot> every day. These are the daily checkins. From there you can decide whether a build worths a try or there aren't significant improvements for your kind of Mozilla usage. Checkins you see there affect next builds. Sometimes we have to wait for many hours before a checkin into the cvs will be built into a nightly. This is the case, particularly for win32 builds. I'm not sure why win32 builds are so late, maybe development and testing tools are easier to use in other plattforms.

Asa's build comments here in Mozillazine is another source of build information (warnings about stability issues and regressions are invaluable).

In numerous occasions, I see a very very important fix in the trunk, shortly after a milestone release. E.g. a recent fix in pop3 login that didn't make it into the branch afaik. Until now, message download was a frustrating experience for me, just because of this bug. Wouldn't it be silly to wait until the next milestone ? :-)
