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.

Unfortunately, there's no Linux on my machines, yet. I have to wait for the next hard disk upgrade :-(
In Win32, there was a "trip point" from where Mozilla became more stable than NS4.7. That was somewhere early in 2001, I think. From then, it continuously accepts improvements so the distance between Moz and NS4.x is getting longer.
From what I see on Bugzilla, Linux version stability problems occur at slightly faster rate than in Win32. It's a good thing that Linux testers are so many that bugs are quickly detected . Macintosh versions seem to be more problematic, that's my impression from everyday bug reports.
