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.

Asa, I'm sorry, but this is not a response. It doesn't address any of my points. It just plays word games and puts words in my mouth that I never said, such as my supposed desire to close the bug database, which exists purely in your own mind. I'd like to pull out any points of substance and respond to them, but I can't find any. It's because of messages like this that I can't regard you as a reliable source. That wouldn't matter so much, except that you're saying I should believe things are going well based on your say-so rather than on any kind of actual metric.

In another message you finally gave the MTBF link <http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/data/crash-data/> that you've always refused to give me before. I wonder if this has something to do with th efact that the numbers are not very good. I'm seeing reported averages of three to six hours between crashes. If that's an improvement, huzzah, but it's not yet close to where it needs to be for a professional quality product. It should be at least a few days, but weeks would be more in line with how serious products are performing these days. Do you have a graph of the trend there so it would be possible to make a ballpark guess at when MTBF might be more acceptable?
