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.

When I mentioned the lack of a release schedule, I meant for Mozilla 1.0. Yes, there is a rough schedule for build cycles, but none for the overall product.

After some more poking at the installer, I see that there is a button to turn off TalkBack, although it is buried fairly deep on the Mac installer. Still, it's there, and this is no more obscure than having a separate installer for non-TalkBack builds, so I agree that the concern expressed on MozillaQuest about lack of a TalkBack-less installer is not a substantial criticism, and is even misleading.

As he has not specified what other privacy concerns he has with the installer, I am not able to express an informed opinion on whether they are valid or not. My initial point was in response to the statement made by his critic that he hadn't given any reason for recommending disconnection during the install process. In fact he did give a reason, though he did not do much to substantiate it.
