Tree Closes Tonight for Mozilla 0.9.9

Tuesday February 19th, 2002 will begin the process to release Mozilla 0.9.9 tonight at 11:59 pm pacific by closing the tree to free checkins. Mozilla 0.9.9 is the last major milestone prior to 1.0, and includes numerous bugfixes in composer, history, and other areas. Along with this, likely new features that will be in the milestone include a new full screen window mode, set image as wallpaper, and composer publishing.

Following the tree close tonight, expect up to a week of tree closure for stability and regression fixes, then a branch to be cut some time next week. As soon as the branch is cut, the trunk will reopen for Mozilla 1.0 checkins. is shooting for a March 1st release date, but due to this being the last milestone before 1.0, and because there is a large amount of code that will be landed tonight prior to tree close, delays may occur.

The post was not at all rude. All it said is that the bug in question is probably not 1.0 material since it will take lots of work, be potentially destabilizing, and lead to little reward (lots of reward for a few, no reward for the many == little reward).

This is not to say the bug should not be fixed or it's not an annoyance. It's just not in the class of bugs that should be the focus in the next few weeks, unless the profile back end people have absolutely nothing else to do.

Please read the 1.0 manifesto for more information.
