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.

>>Shared libraries between separate browser and email clients can definitely help reduce the amount of duplicate code, but it would not eliminate it completely. If the web browser and email client were developed totally apart from one another then that makes it harder for then to coordinate the data sharing. <<

Theoretically, yes. I use a proxy object to communicate between two separate programs. I've been doing this in COM since 1997. Works great.
