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.

The 2001-11-06-03 build for Win32 i downloaded last night had much improved tab support. Options for Ctrl+Click on a link to open in new tab, etc.

They did kill the [x] to close the tab, which I thought was a big mistake. Hopefully it will come back in some form soon. Having to middle click is a mess, and I'd prefer to have a close button single clickable. I think that hiding the [x] until your mouse is over it is a problem, because there is no indication that the [x] will appear until you happen to go to mouse over the tab. Having the [x] static seemed fine to me - why not add a bit of text next to it that says "Close Surrent Tab" and then have a preference to turn that text off for power users?
