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.
#19 a step forward, but ...

I don't know what other people have seen, but in the past few weeks I've seen many bugs originally targeted for 0.9.6 or earlier sent off packing to a future milestone or to "Future", and many annoying new regressions.
Mozilla is definitely improving, but at this pace, I don't expect to see 1.0 anytime soon.
