Mozilla 0.9.6 Released

Tuesday November 20th, 2001 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, last week released the source code on which Netscape 6.2 was based.

> Since there are now several links toolbar bugs instead off one, does that mean that Mozilla is worse than it was before the links toolbar was implemented?

Yes, it does. You still seem to be having some trouble grasping the concept of feature freeze and the quality impact of adding new features. It's a pretty simple concept, and familiar to anyone who has released software of any significant size, so I'm not sure what the problem is here.
