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.


#16 Yeah, what about the bugs (and performance)

The original question has not been answered: what about the bugs targeted & tracked bugs?

There are still 103 critical bugs targeted to 0.9.6 and 4 for "make 0.9.6 not suck' tracking bug (12037, 105619, 106445, 109356).

What is the plan for these bugs, are there going to be pushed to 0.9.7? Some of them are topcrashers. Or perhaps the plan is that some commercial version is to be based on 0.9.6, so that the branch will go on until these critical bugs are closed, and we might see an update for 0.9.6? I doubt as I didn't see any keywords for that.

I don't understand the process anymore. Can someone explain what's going on?
