Mozilla 1.0 Definition

Tuesday October 16th, 2001

Brendan Eich, mozilla.org's Technical Bigshot, today posted what mozilla.org believes are the criteria to release a 1.0 milestone. The posting outlines exactly what Mozilla 1.0 is (and isn't), how mozilla.org 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.

I think they should get the onmouseovers and onmouseouts working before version 1. Somebody set bug 24974 to be fixed in a "Future" version. I think it would be bad if this works in Netscape 4 and does not work in Mozilla 1. Bug 103558 seems to not have a "Target Milestone." I have read comments against searching for favicon.ico because it "hammers" servers during bookmarking. I think constantly downloading rollover images would be a bigger hammer and hit more often. It also makes Internet Explorer noticeably faster on pages with rollover images, along with actually working while Mozilla does not.
