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.

Strauss, did you think about this at all before posting?

"Mean Time Between Failures" by definition requires that the browser fails. Whenever anyone runs their web browser without ever crashing, there is no MTBF and so obviously their uptime is not figured in.

There should be no reason why or Asa or fuzzygorilla or anyone should have to explain this to you. There is no reason why they should have to provide any evidence to prove to you that rants about MTBF have no basis in reality.
