Full Article Attached Mail/News Performance Effort Underway

Friday November 2nd, 2001

Seth Spitzer today sent an update out about what the Mail/News team is doing to meet their goals for Mozilla 1.0. They'll be focusing almost 100% of their effort for at least the next two milestones (0.9.7, 0.9.8) on Footprint and Performance of the various parts of Mail, News, and Addressbook. Not only will they be focusing on it, they'll also be locking down their part of the tree and only accepting performance or footprint fixes. Very few exceptions will be made.

well, usenet stats are virtually impossible to come by. all i could figure was by checking out some of the newsgroups i used to read religiously in the late 80's and early 90's. there seemed to be a couple new sub-groups and maybe 25-50% more article volume. not sure if this indicates that usenet is shrinking or if it just has really slow growth.

in the same time period, i'd guess that the web and email has doubled several times over.
