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.

Actually, don't you think the "you've just volunteered" thing is a liiiitle bit coercive? Maybe it should be changed to, hrm, I don't know. Something less coercive.

Angelo just takes raw bug counts. I don't see how that's of any help, especially considering most of the bugs are relatively minor.

And the "that's too many bugs for a commericial product" is irritating. Firstly, Mozilla *isn't* a commercial product. And secondly, how does he claim what is too many bugs for a commercial product? Especially for a product of this size and complexity.

What's Amaya btw?
