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.


#21 Here is a WinXP Screenshot (MacOS X theme)

I tried to recreate the OS X screenshot (<http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…?id=64512&action=view>) on my Windows XP machine using the new natively drawn widgets and the StyleXP based AquaMax theme.

I think it turned out pretty well...except for the transparency, and some minor differences. Note that my screenshot is using Cleartype anti-aliasing, so the text might look a little weird on a CRT monitor, but it looks incredible on a LCD screen - better than the OS X screenshot, actually.

Anyway, here is my screenshot - <http://www.loodi.com/XPTheme.png> (161kB, 1138x1017 24bit PNG)
