Gervase Markham writes: "The Links Toolbar from bug 87428 has finally landed, bringing us ever-closer to full support for HTML 2.0. You'll see it in this morning's builds. The auto-show is still in development over in bug 102832. Good places to try it out are Bugzilla buglists, the W3C, and many machine-generated manuals or documents, such as the GNU Make manual."

I do too, as an end user. They're good features. What I'm talking about is their logistical impact on the project. No software project of medium or large size can achieve a stable release without eventually declaring a moratorium on cool new ideas and just stabilizing what's already done. This is often very emotional and there are many engineers who just won't accept that the time for latest-cool-idea-of-the-week isn't now. I've lost friends over feature freezes. But I'd rather have lost friends than failed to ship the products.
