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, some of us know you know your stuff.

Strauss: It's interesting that you could sit around and bitch about Mozilla on this site for hours upon hours every day, do absolutely nothing constructive for Mozilla (such as verifying fixes, etc.), and drain even the resources Mozilla.org does have by making them come here and defend Mozilla against your uninformed gibberings and your expectations in the stars.

Bugs curves are going up because more people are using the product. DUH!

And your nonsense about "high-risk" is just a JOKE. What, people are all going to dump Mozilla if 1.0 has outstanding bugs? People will stop using Netscape or Compuserve because Mozilla 1.0 underneath it has bugs in it? Whatever!

Even if Mozilla 1.0 isn't perfect - AND WHAT 1.0 PRODUCT IS? - There will be fixes on the long-lived Mozilla 1.0 branch. The point in 1.0 is to freeze the APIs so that people can actually use the product to make applications, themes, etc. The 1.0 branch will be clean, I'm quite sure. I imagine it will go through some serious debugging and I also imagine some bugs will be futured. GET OVER IT.

It'd be nice if you had something better to do for Mozilla than try to incite anti-Mozilla riots here at MZ (notably, a site that is PRO-Mozilla. You're as annoying that goon mangelo and Bruce Jensen was before you. I hope you get bored and go away like they did. Maybe you could all form a club!
