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.

Create an icon, preferable a .png or windows .ico file 32 x 32 pixels (for the .ico you'll need a program that can save .ico; I use Canvas 6 for Windows when I'm on Windows, but that's a pretty pricey program; there are sharewares and perhaps the GIMP does it, too). If it's an .ico file, you can save it as favicon.ico, which is the IE method. Then add <link rel="icon" href="filename.ext" /> to the document head to provide the .png to Mozilla users (you can also use this with .ico files; Mozilla users can also get favicon.ico automatically if they choose to, but the <link> method is preferred).
