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.

Ypou know what I often encounter bugs listed in very inexact wyas. For example if I am wanting to find if the bug for a page display error has already been reported, how likely am I to find the bug report when the reporter reports it as "The page is horked". No wonder some bugs have duplicates. Reporters might consider being as exact as their technical knowledge allows, for example "Type flows over graphics and is incorrect" is less likely to get a duplicate bug submitted than a bug reported as "This page is horked." Just an observation.
