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.

<p>I just read through the entire thread. Wow. It seems to me there are two issues: 1) on certain sites it's dangerous to relaod the page (ie. when shopping), 2) developers working on dynamic pages need to be able to see the source behind the _current_window_. The first problem can be addressed with a warning "viewing the source of this page will.... The second can be addressed with a preference ("keep the source to the current page around, even if it slows things down and takes up 10 times as much ram").</p> <p>In any case, this bug needs to be solved, even if the solution isn't optimal. If the solution is really that bad then make it an option. For people like me who develop dynamic web sites this bug is critical.</p>
