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.

>If we've failed you so, then go away. You've got nothing to gain by hanging around and we could all save some time and make mozilla that much better if we were'nt responding to your clearly moot criticism (if you don't expect us to be a success then why offer even constructive criticism). Go find some other project to set your hopes on.

Could you realize how miserable a life of a troll would be if there wasn't a work of someone else to taunt? He comes again and again, saying that Mozilla has bad project management, that any open source projects would fail etc. I did agree with him once that, in *my* point of view, there is a human resource problem in Mozilla. But, since I could not offer anything useful in that field, I shut up and turned in other fields where I think I could help.

Coming up and (essentially) saying (amonsgt other things) over again that Mozilla is going nowhere, is trollism. If you strongly believe there's truly a problem that should be fixed asap, say it loudly but only once. Then, offer your experience and intelligence for something more useful than bitching in an advocacy site.
