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.

This is true, but the document says they will still work on issues that block the mail/news from general use,easy to fix, and for dataloss. My premise is that all bugs I cited are general-use blockers (and two of them have dataloss keywords) but there has been very little action with them lately. In the case of the not seeing all atachments, one of the devs thinks it could be solved by opening a different kind of window (mail window rather than view source) - I should hope that as fixes go, that is a fairly minor one.
