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.

We are not the only company which is still using 4.x here. mozilla probably is much more stable than 4.x in the meantime, but there are so many "dear" features still missing in mailnews ... well not 482, but at least a dozen, which is plenty too, if those features are being used frequently. Take <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=70478> for example. Its beyond me how this can NOT be in mailnews. I have raised this issue a few times in the wishlist group, but people there dont seem to be interested. They'd rather have automatic downloadmanagers, even more advanced handling of popups or a pacman game written in XUL. I dont know how many manyears were spent on getting the theme stuff right -- but, honestly I could live without themes. I cannot live without bug 70478 getting fixed. And although I am not a programmer, it cannot be that complicated: everything one needs must be there anyways. Well sorry for bug promotion, but I couldnt resist :)
