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.

Netscape Communicator version 4 is "something other than IE". I can assure you, my page, or anyone's page, is not best viewed with Netscape Communicator version 4. (No offense to any Netscape people or anything, I realise that it was alright when it was first released)

Well, if it's just for standards, then the Webstandards Project already has way of making you upgrade your browser, and they suggest Netscape 6.2, Opera 5, or IE 6.

So I guess a Mozilla button is needed, but where would it link to? If it's just to plain mozilla.org, then people won't know what to do - there isn't anything telling them to download mozilla, just nonsense about binaries and testing and milestones and hacking, which is clearly nothing but gibberish - line noise, perhaps, caused by a faulty network connection. It is the assumption of the mozilla.org homepage that anyone looking at it already knows everything there is to know about Mozilla. And you'll not get mozilla.org to encourage people to download Mozilla except for debugging purposes, and there are already Best Viewed With Netscape 6 images (I think).

So... suggestions? If, perhaps, someone with a server capable of handling traffic had a Introduction To Mozilla type page that linked to the Mozilla.org ftp site...?
