Tree Closes For 0.9.8

Wednesday January 16th, 2002 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 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.

#59 wohoo :)

Thank you thank you :) Think this will make life much easier for many people :)

for the first comment: I think this is not the last Milestone before 1.0. There's still a 0.9.9 in between and maybe more? Even if Mozilla is as great as it is now, they shouldn't rush now. A few weeks sooner or later won't make much difference now but can help a lot to make the best 1.0 release such a large project has ever seen...
