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.
#43 Themes are nice "pretty" features but ...

... I would really like to see closure on some old bugs that have been (IMHO of course) the only MAJOR deficits to general use. Such as the added <pre> tags on pastes (bug 98572), or opening an attachment changes it's name (bug 95175), or not seeing all attachments in an email (!) (bug 95619). And no, it is not lost on me that these issues are only email related (to me it is a required feature for general use), but I really would like to see some of these old bugs resolved before they bring in new ones (on features that aren't - IMHO - barriers to general use).
