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 "broken patches" were a huge rewrite of lots of form functionality to deal with numerous architectural problems that prevented non-displayed form elements from working. The patch was 900K of code! That means that the reviewers had to carefully read the 900K and catch any and all errors in the code and its interactions with other code.

The fact that only 2 issues arose is a wonder in my opinion.

Also, test builds with this patch were available for weeks. Shame on all of us (including myself) for not trying them. Had we done so, these issues would perhaps have been caught much sooner.
