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.

I don't think I've seen a single post that claims that his bug counts are wrong. The arguments against Mangelo's methods that have been posted here can be summed up in two words: Sampling error.

Now we can argue about whether this should be called a math error or not ... it's certainly debatable but ultimately irrelevant.

Naturally this implies that if this is so, that there is a good deal of what amounts to trash in the bugzilla database. Or at least sufficiently heterogeneous objects that his analyses do not have the significance that he attributes to them. This idea doesn't particularly surprise me, especially given such a large collection of heterogeneous entries maintained by such a large number of people over such a long period of time.
