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.
#38 GTK really?

Actually, I think the only think that you're horribly mistaken about is the fact that you're actually disagreeing with anyone.
My explanation is exactly the same as the one Asa offered, and that numerous other people have given. It can't possibly be any different because that (and reading the bugs and the patches) is my only source of information! I'm no more a "project insider" than you are.
So the only thing I don't understand is, since you actually do seem to more-or-less understand what's going on, why you insist that Asa and every other person who's tried to explain this to you has been somehow lying or mistaken, and yet when I say the same thing I'm "acknowledging that you've been right all along".
(Btw, I did notice that you immediately resorted to namecalling when faced with substantive facts that you couldn't disagree with. If you're really doing more than trolling, you might want to avoid that because it makes it look like you are)
