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.

"I'm sure someone can remember strauss' postings, saying that he would be better off without Mozilla because it's just one more browser to test his applications on and that it's JavaScript is weak cause of lacking drag&drop support and the like."

Wait now, let's not change your story. What you claimed he said was:

"Mozilla is crap and world would do better without it"

What you said above is totally different. Plus I'm sure there was a context. Not just "Mozilla sucks" in a stand-alone post at root level in the threat. So come on, let's not throw wild claims around. Give us the URL to the post(s). You even said he does it OFTEN. If that's the case, it shouldn't be hard to find. After all, Strauss posts here a lot!
