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.

Oh, well, that is because of the new feature that was added to the Mozilla talkback builds that queries Bugzilla before trying to submit a new error report. You see, the open bug relating to the issue described in your submission is bug 112434 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112434> and so Mozilla did not send anything. But seriously folks, talkback builds send stack traces. If Mozilla did not crash in such a way as to trigger a stack trace then you need to try to submit the bug yourself using Bugzilla. <http://www.mozilla.org/qu…help/bugzilla-helper.html>
