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.

Asa the only bad thing is that these nearly useless MTBF numbers correspond perfectly to my feeling about mozilla stability. MTBF > 5.5 hours, less then one crash per day; MTBF around 3.5 hours it crashes nearly every other hour under heavy load. And currently the daily builds are unstable. And if you look at 8000 talkback reports then they provide a quite good base for a statistic. There may be differences on the behaviour of single testers but I think they will be smoothed out by the large number of testers and reports. (That's hwo statistics works.) If one looks at the comments, it seems that the majority who submits these reports belong to the core testing community. So I believe the MTBF really reflects the status of the builds.
