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.

"I did not file a bug report since the Talkback app did it for me."

but did it? what do you assume to be the function of Talkback? I would appreciate further clarification but as I understand it, Talkback reports are useful in-depth analysis as background reading for a bug report (what was happening as Mozilla broke, not the where and when of the breakage?). perhaps there's documentation somewhere or someone could write it to clarify the differences between Talkback and Bugzilla
