Tree Closes For 0.9.8

Wednesday January 16th, 2002 has closed the tree to approved checkins only, starting as of 12am Wednesday, and will do so until 0.9.8 has branched. 0.9.8 will have a variety of new items including new natively drawn widgets on WindowsXP, Mac OS X, and GTK, when you are in the classic skin (We will have more on this later, including screenshots); the addressbook was rewritten, and now supports printing, a new "Get Map" button allowing you to query for a map based on a card address, and other stability fixes; Windows MAPI support; and a huge amount of performance and stability work.

Many believe this is one of the last milestones prior to 1.0, and that will actually have 1.0 following 0.9.9. 0.9.8 should branch sometime next week, with a release two Mondays from now. We'll keep you updated on both the branching and the release.

What links? Is it consistent on any particular link(s)? Does TalkBack pop up? Are you sending in Talkback reports? What are the TalkBack Incident IDs? Have you reported this to Bugzilla? What is the bug #?

I appreciate general \"it\'s less stable\" or \"it\'s more stable\" comments so don\'t take my questions as discouragement. If you are having specific and reproducible failures, however, it is in your best interest to follow-up a little (sending in talkback takes about 10 seconds, filing a bug takes a few minutes) by providing information that helps us fix the bug.

And if you send in talkback or include that in your bug report (and somehow let me know the incident ID) I\'ll even help see that that bug gets assigned properly.
