Tree Closes for Mozilla 0.9.6

Wednesday November 7th, 2001 today closed the tree in preparation for the branching of the 0.9.6 Milestone later this week. As usual, 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!: 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.

I just saw this at our card processor's site:

********** Netscape 6.x or 6.1 - Technical Issues - September 27, 2001

We have recently been informed that customers using Netscape 6.x or 6.1 are encountering errors when attempting to purchase from an InternetSecure merchant. Most commonly, a customer will complete the first page of the InternetSecure order form pages and then will receive a notice stating:


We Cannot Process Your Transaction. Cannot find one or any of these variables: MerchantNumber, Products, ReturnURL or ReturnCGI.


According to the engineers at Netscape, the newest versions of their internet browser; Netscape 6.0 and higher, use a different encryption algorithm. Unfortunately this algorithm interferes with most online banking software including InternetSecure's payment processing gateway. Netscape recognizes the issue and is working to correct it.

Some banks, such as CIBC have issued a statement advising their users "not to upgrade".

You may wish to place a notice on your website informing your customers of the issues involved and that Netscape 6.x users may phone or fax their orders to you.


Seemed to work fine in the latest nightly, but I didn't go all the way through. Anyone know more?
