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.
#124 Heh. Caught it this time.

Actually, it may be as simple as password manager remembering the title field--it's only supposed to remember login/password, but I could see how it might screw up here--I'll check it out...even if this isn't a bug, it's kinda funny how many Mozilla bugs are found right here at MZine.
Oh, didn't know that it actually was a mostfreq. Sounds like it's more popular than logic would dictate, however I don't think that it'd be an easy fix to make different versions, for example, use mostly the same files (e.g. make Linux not have to use appreg), but a synchronize feature akin to Netscape Mail could work as a temporary thing between profiles, maybe...
What the heck. Just throwing weird ideas around. What I'm concerned about is that resources are focusing too much on stuff that isn't crucial before 1.0., and on stuff that could lead to the inception of more bugs. When Mozilla is released publicly, it must be on time, and it can't just be better than the rest. It's gotta be a 'killa app'. Netscape 6 tarnished Mozilla's reputation, so now, we must take back the internet (mwahaha).
