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 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."

Wishlist isn't a good place for bug advocacy, really. Most people there tend to be one-time-posters who drop in to promote some feature they think would be a good idea. The regulars basically just reply to interesting-sounding ideas with "Good idea. File a bug." and bad ideas with "That shouldn't go in/wouldn't work because...". There's not much that wishlist can do for a bug report that already exists.

"And although I am not a programmer, it cannot be that complicated: everything one needs must be there anyways."

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!

"And although I'm not a programmer, it cannot be complicated..." Those words are the bane of my existence... :P
