Mozilla 0.9.6 Released

Tuesday November 20th, 2001

mozilla.org today made available for download binaries of the Mozilla 0.9.6 Milestone. The builds are available on the releases page, or you can get them directly from the ftp site.

New to this milestone are fixes for about 1,600 bugs including support for site icons in both the url bar and tabs (expect IE's favicons to show up in 0.9.7), displaying both Windows Bitmap (.bmp) and Windows Icon (.ico) files inline on all platforms, a new print preview implementation, Page Setup improvements on the Macintosh, Mail message 'labels' (Correction: This feature is not fully complete, only parts of the backed have landed.), and a new select and search context menu item, among others. If you are interested in more information on any of these new features, be sure to check out the release notes.

Also, mozilla.org last week released the source code on which Netscape 6.2 was based.

Try clicking on the link again. If it crashes everytime you click on that link, file a bug report. The truth is they don't sweep lots of bugs under the carpet, because they can't be aware of all the possible bugs. Your responsability as an user of a Mozilla milestone is to TEST it and REPORT THE BUGS you find. EXTRACT: Congratulations! You've downloaded a Mozilla build. This means that you've volunteered to become part of the Mozilla testing community. Great! Welcome aboard. Helping out won't take much of your time, doesn't require special skills, and will help improve Mozilla. I see nothing about whining there. Moreover, lots of the bugs are RFE, such as "Mozilla should have <insert feature> like IE".

You know, Mangelo and other whiners would be of a big help if they submitted bug reports by the way, and actually told which bugs they're talking about. Instead, Mangelo's just spreading misinformation about Mozilla and resuming the development process to a mere bug count. If this is having a point, then let's all run Amaya.
