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.

The release notes mentioned that the speedups for tubo mode had been reduced, apparently so it can work for different profiles. Unfortunately, it's true. For me, 0.9.4 takes six to seven seconds to start up, wherease 0.9.3 took about a second. Aaargh! :-(

On the bright side, 0.9.4 is very stable and responsive, which 0.9.3 was definately lacking in. I suppose responsiveness is more important than startup time, but I wish it didn't have to be a tradeoff...
