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.

No default title on my responses, I think- not even a Re:. BTW, a design inconsistency may be a non-1.0 issue, but an easy-fix mostfreq is a 1.0 issue. Variations on this bug (with the two dependent bugs it would pretty much fix automatically which I have no idea why they have a separate existence) have been submitted roughly 25 times- if 1.0 has a considerably higher user base, which is the hoped-for situation, this bug will cause a triaging disaster. But, of course, you're more than entitled to disagree- the main goal in spreading any information, if you're not just a propagandist, is not to get everyone to agree but to get as many people as possible to become aware. In any case, I would have to disagree with your last comment's title :)
