Tree Closes For 0.9.8

Wednesday January 16th, 2002

Mozilla.org 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 Mozilla.org 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.


#13 just a quick question

Well, first off, I got a build today, and the only 'native' xp thing is that the menus have shadows (umm... yay, I guess). Anyway, though, my real question is, I upgraded to XP a few hours ago, and everything is fine except that mozilla seems to have lost my profile. By making a new one in profile manager it will start, but all my bookmarks, etc. are gone. I can still use my old profile in 6.2, but moz tells me the folder can't be found or something. Can I copy the stuff from 6.2's folders, or what?

Thanks in advance if anyone knows the answer. ;)
