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.

#84 Mozilla 0.9.5 in Title Bar?

Just wondering, but I upgraded Mozilla via Debian's apt-get and the version in the title bar is 0.9.5 still. Was this just a slight oversight, a mistake in the Debian package, or just some weird bug? In the Help|About Mozilla, it does show 0.9.6. I did upgrade from 0.9.5 and deleted my ".mozilla" directory to start from scratch.

Other than that, it's been pretty good. It feels faster at least, and that's always a good sign. =)
