Mozilla 0.9.6 Released

Tuesday November 20th, 2001 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, last week released the source code on which Netscape 6.2 was based.

If you don't have patience, how will you be a doctor? (I don't know if that was funny, or not. If not, I apologize in advance.)

My point here is: why use words such as "stupid"? The spirit of Mozilla seems to be "If you find something broken, go ahead and fix it." It is okay to report a bug/problem/frustration with Mozilla. However, adding adjectives such as stupid serves no purpose other than working people up.

There are plenty of annoyances with 0.9.6, and there is already a flame war going on in other posts (sparked by Strauss' relentless criticism and personal attacks.) Let's keep Mozillazine peaceful, friendly, and open to all.
