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.

"but it's a real hassle if you have more than one mailbox". by "mailbox" do you mean the place to store your mail on disk, or POP3/etc account? I use a few mail accounts with Pegasus and find it very straightforward

"it didn't support HTML too well". rendering HTML has been given a lot of attention in the new version. to quote the web site: "Pegasus Mail can now display practically all HTML content, and can compose HTML messages containing tables, graphics, hyperlinks and more". why bother putting the work in to creaing a rendreing engine when there's Gecko tho? (not that I want to dissuade people from using Mozilla, as then you can take your email application with you as you change operating system. but Pegasus is worthy of consideration as it does so much more than most other email clients)
