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.

In general, while the feature freeze and code branch are fairly dates that maintain a five week schedule, the release of the milestone is typically much more flexible. If you check the Mozilla Development Roadmap <http://www.mozilla.org/roadmap.html> you will see that the "ideal release" date for 0.9.8 was 25-Jan-2002 (not yesterday). But the drivers are still trying to ensure as many of the "make Mozilla 0.9.8 not suck" bugs <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=115520> get fixed as possible. Expect 0.9.8 when it is ready (don't rush the Moz!)
