Mozilla Branches for 0.9.8

Wednesday January 23rd, 2002

mozilla.org today branched for Mozilla Milestone 0.9.8, as well as opened the tree for 0.9.9 checkins. Look for branch builds to start sometime later this week, as early as tomorrow. (While a certain site believes that without builds, you can't have a branch, that is not true.) Pre-0.9.9 trunk builds will start tomorrow, or possibly tonight. See our earlier story for what's new in 0.9.8.

It attempts to solve the towers of hanoi problem for 50 discs, a problem which requires more than 1.1258 E 15 steps (and as many recursive calls). If there are any computers that can solve it, they are in super-computing labs and certainly not using JavaScript to work on the problem. The same code with a number less than 15 or so can be used to actually solve the problem for x discs.
