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.

Here's another advantage. Many organisations use Netscape Communicator 4.x simply because of its LDAP support. They choose Netscape just for Messneger but use Navigator as well. Therefore, a compelling argument for using one component leads them to use the whole suite. In fact, a lot of corporate users are waiting for Mozilla's LDAP support to improve before upgrading.
