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.

Mozillazine revised their website and the revision had some issues for some browsers. Why does that give strauss or anyone else a right to insult them?

If strauss found the problems to be unbearable then he had the option of not visiting the site; no one asked him to waste his time; no one asked him to waste our time with his bitching.

Although strauss implies that he has better things to do than visit a website that he can not view properly with IE 5, he does not seem to consider the fact that the people behind Mozillazine might have better things to do than work on making Mozillazine view well in IE 5.

If strauss were paying for Mozillazine then he might have some justification for his ranting. If strauss had offerred polite, constructive criticism then no one would mind his post. If strauss has a mental disorder that causes his rudeness then we could probably excuse it.

There were plenty of people who reported problems with the new Mozillazine layout without being obnoxious, why should strauss not be expected to do the same? Is he not capable of staying within the bounds of appropriate behavior? Regardless, why should anyone be expected to quietly tolerate his inappropriate posts?
