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.

#147 Header display just sucks

The way headers are displayed in mozilla just sucks: either you have to give up a lot of space to see them all or you get a truncated subject line for the concise display (who had this idiotic idea of showing subject line and address side by side anyway? I have long subjects already truncated in the message list pane, so I want at least see it in the actual mail window!) I wish there would be at least a preference to have it displayed 4.x syle: just incorporate everything into the scrollable window. If the header has to be in its own pane it should be possible to set the (max) size of the pane and make it scrollable for those of us who want full headers, or let users customize what and how to show. Coming from 4.x mailnews is a pain and a frustrating experience.
