Tree Closes Tonight for Mozilla 0.9.9
Tuesday February 19th, 2002
mozilla.org 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. mozilla.org 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 bug submitter was] concerned about the tendency of his prefs to be stored in an absolute instead of relative way, which is contrary to design ideals."
A good point, that this concerns many more users, but I still think that this is something that can easily live with getting a LATER tag. It would be nice to organize everything, but Mozilla really does work well right now, and 1.0 doesn't necessarily need this. Yes, this MUST be addressed, but Mozilla doesn't end at 1...
And guys, face it; Strauss presents a good point too.
