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.

My perspective is that I work hard to make sure there is nothing resembling a personal attack in my messages, while those who disagree with me seem to go out of their way to be as overtly insulting as possible. YMMV, but when I'm accused of being insulting for saying, e.g., that dual-boot users represent something like one eighth of one percent of the desktop market, or for saying that talkback has become so difficult to use due to CSS problems that I won't use it any more, then I know that my supposed "insults" are the products of someone's imagination.
