Tree Closes for Mozilla 0.9.6

Wednesday November 7th, 2001

mozilla.org today closed the tree in preparation for the branching of the 0.9.6 Milestone later this week. As usual, drivers@mozilla.org will work towards a Friday branch and a release on the following Friday. Check-ins to the tree will be moderated by the Drivers until the branch happens.

UPDATE!: mozilla.org branched for 0.9.6 on Friday, and the trunk has reopened for 0.9.7. Expect to start seeing branch builds sometime this weekend, or on monday.

Loving tabbed browsing, loving Netscape 6 (though I\'ll love it more when I can get some more themes for it, esp. OrbitII and Mozillium), loving every thumbs-up nightly that I come across, and very happy with it\'s headway and extensibility which is bringing it beyond the monolithic Internet Explorer series of beast. Got it? I love it! However...

There\'s one thing that I\'m really curious about: beyond whatever documentation is provided by Mozilla, do developers of 3rd party plugins and extensions get any other assistance from the Mozilla team? If so, perhaps Macromedia could use one of the guys for a day or two in order to resolve bug 99974 (or even 93959 if they\'re feeling frisky ;D)?

I also reckon it\'d be a good idea to go into full lock down until all blocker, critical, major and normal bugs can be condensed into a workable list. Heaps of these are duplicates, and even more are caused because of underlying dependancies, and therefore are resultant of the one bug, not a new bug altogether. The contributors at MozDev are doing a great job with their own extensions, but having the Mozilla base made air tight would make the thing damn-near unbreakable, which would be great both for developers (of pages and/or plugins), and the end users.

Unfortunately, I don\'t know much about the current lock down (until 0.9.6), but I\'m curious as to what the lock down is in pace to achieve, and what it\'s constraints are (assuming that the constraints must be satisfied before release of 0.9.6), so if anyone could enlighten me...?
