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.

Sounds better. If it will be an option. But in that case - when anybody finally kick off that piece of crap calling itself "OS native file-picker"? ^_^ Personally that's horrible when during work with differently (but very good) looking program you sometimes get something completelly OS-related. (Especially when it's something like filepicker. I have feeling sometimes OSs are competing who can do it worse ;-) If I remember it right there was idea of filepicker XUL tag but never got in implementation further than an empty block and died soon after it...
