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 was referring to the screaming that ensues here whenever anyone mentions the defect curve's continual upwards climb, as well as the abuse directed at mangelo for citing bug figures from Bugzilla in his articles. I made no claim that the bugs or the number of bugs were hidden, only that there was an informal social pressure to cover up their significance.
