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.


#92 Slightly off-topic: Saving a page as plain text...

It's not really on-topic (apart from the fact that 0.9.4 doesn't have this feature), but Netscape releases for a long time (maybe as far back as 1.X ?) have been able to save a page as plain text, HTML source or PostScript.

Bug 42441 ( <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=42441> ) details this problem [I'd argue that bug 64705 ( <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=64705> ) is a duplicate, but it's been re-opened after someone marked it as such for no obvious reason I can see].

The reason I mention this one is two-fold: 1) it hits me most weeks - it's nice to have a plain text version of a Web page for filing away (or incorporating into another text document) and having to resort to "lynx -dump" is annoying, particularly with tables and 2) progress on sorting this one out seems slow considering it's a feature in many previous Netscape versions and has been a bug for some 8 months now (I'd help out if I knew C++, but I'm barely a beginner at it).

I'm off to vote for it ( <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…howvotes.cgi?voteon=64705> ), which will, er, increase the votes from 1 to 2, but let's hope someone considers this a bit of a higher priority in the future - I can't be the only person missing this Netscape feature, surely ?
