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.

> is 1.0 when most people can use it without many problems?

No, 1.0 is a version that is stable/usable and has all the debugging menu items disabled and does not point you to a "thank you for helping to test this development build" page when you start the thing.

It would be nice to have a mozilla build for non techie users that has been well tested and packaged for end users (i.e. without the alpa version warnings and debuging/testing related menu-items). So far the milestones have been increasingly better. I wouldn't have much problems with the current milestone being labeled 1.0. The question of the original poster was when this is going to happen. I think it is a reasonable question considering the quality of the current milestone.

A 1.0 would mean: - a clear deliverable by the mozilla project - a signal to end users that they can go ahead and install the thing - a signal to third parties that there's something to target their mozilla extensions at - an opportunity for mozilla developers to start the possibly destabilizing work on next generation features
