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.

I would think that you would have to start with the rewrite because for all practical purposes that was really the beginning of what will become Mozilla 1.0 in the near future. What came before was a totally different set of applications.

Regardless 4.0 years is not really very long to develop a software suite - especially one that will be so advanced. The fact that Mozilla hs not yet released a 1.0 version is irrelevant. IE is now at version 6.0 (for Windows only) after 7 (or is it 6?) years of development. Mozilla 1.0 will soon pass IE in quality and IE will always have had more years of development.

BTW, if I remember right the codebase for IE never even had a 1.0 release.
