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.

The only problem with the defect curve and with writing about it is that there's just no way for easily displaying it. I know about the reporting utility but there's no use if bugs like "Tracking bug for interesting bug reports" or "We need a complete feature list of Mozilla" is treated absolutely equal to a "Mozilla destroys my system". And even if you could select just blocker or critical severity bugs there's still the problem that this severity is subectively set by the enigneer.

Statistics is Voodoo. That's the hole problem.
