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.

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

Why doesn't the counter keep counting the next time you start the browser then? And then when the first crash occurs, it sends over the cumulative uptime until that crash had occured. The only thing that would be missing in that case is the times when people installed a NEW browser, used it for a short time until they AGAIN got a new browser and did not crash in between. I doubt those people are so many that it would be a big factor in the statistics.. Maybe I'm wrong..
