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.


#70 What are milestones really for?

Here's a hypothetical question:

Pretend that you haven't tested Mozilla for awhile, but you know how these things work, and that you have all the buildbar comments logged. Given a choice, would you try out Milestone 0.9.3, or go to a nightly given the "thumb-up plus !" mark?

What I'm trying to say is that for some reason, the milestone invariably gets complaints about speed, bugs, and other issues. Isn't the intention of a milestone to eliminate high-priority bugs and improve performance, and shouldn't the nightlies be more adverturous?
