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.

#140 Who gives a #$%^ about the number of bugs? MTBF?

I don't really care that much about any of that. I have been using the nightly Mozilla builds for close to a year. I started out just using the browser to see how it worked. It was pretty buggy, etc. As time has gone on, I have fully moved from NS4.7x to Mozilla. Many new features have been added in this time, sometimes causing some regression, but those problems are usually gone in the next build. At this point, I rarely crash. If I do, I simply reload and continue on. How often does IE crash?

I just don't understand why you put SO much signifigance on bug counts and other charts. You sound like the dude at Mozillaquest. What is the point. Is it just for the sake of arguement? Don't you have ANYthing better to do?

Try spending your time USING the browser and reporting bugs instead of dwelling on the previously reported bugs, your life and ours will be a better place. 90% of the posts on here are responses to your nonesense. It's just a waste of time .

We all now know that you could do this better and how you feel it should be done. BUT, if you could do a project such as this better, you would be. You're not. All we here is lotsa noise about how you have done this or that, but NO specifics to back up your claims.

Those that can do things, do. Those that can't, talk about doing it.

(I keep telling myself that I'm not going to be sucked in by this crap anymore and here I go again.. maybe this will be my last rant? :) )
