Mozilla 1.0 Definition

Tuesday October 16th, 2001

Brendan Eich,'s Technical Bigshot, today posted what believes are the criteria to release a 1.0 milestone. The posting outlines exactly what Mozilla 1.0 is (and isn't), how plans to get there, and what the timeline to get to 1.0 is. Also, it explains why a 1.0 release is needed, and why it's not just another milestone.

Daily "thumbs-up" blds still crash one-three times per day (win32). It seems v1.0 should involve feature freeze and gratuitous attention to stability bugs to facilitate acceptance in Enterprise.

I would propose that v1.0 would be better accepted in Enterprise if very stable as opposed to full of wizz-bang -- albeit non-essential -- features. It would be unfortunately for formal v1.0 release to be plagued with instability/security "issues" -- as perceived by press/competition. -GA
