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.

I like the quote "...many users have grown tired of waiting for the project to reach a conclusion". Er, what conclusion ? The only "conclusion" (apart from the fact that ZDNet UK are clueless) to Mozilla would be if, Netscape, AOL and the open source community all abandoned it, which is highly unlikely to happen.

Maybe " reach a 1.0 release" might have been more accurate, but even that is a bit dubious since development will continue apace even after 1.0 comes out.

Is it just me or does it look like the guy who wrote this never actually downloaded and ran Mozilla 0.9.6? Looks suspicously like he just paraphrased the release notes to me.
