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.

I really appreciated two new features- the tabbed pane browsing and the new search bar at the top in the Mail/News. Very very useful. Whoever thought of the idea...you are awesome. It is a very useful feature, but how come I have never seen any other program come up with it before? Good job guys.

Having said that, I think empahsis should be placed on fixing existing bugs. Whan is the Composer ever going to be decently usable? It seems to have stability issues. And of course tehh perview feature is not working yet. Anyone know when that will be working? The Mail/News also seems to have some issues. Formatting messages using HTML (ie non plain text) is not very flawless. I found some buggy implimentration of bolding feature...play around with it. Type multiple paragraphs and try to bold workds from diff paragraphs by selecting them. The bolding is not very clean. sometimes the text even disappears. I have already reported this bug. Also, in textarea, sometimes, the word closest to the scrollbar(of the textarea) disappear!

I think, as I am sure the developers realize, we need to fix these almost "in your face" bugs before 1.0...we seem to awfully close to it.
