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.

Unfortunately, we kind of have commitments to developers, end-users, and companies (which, by releasing 1.0 we will demonstrate--see the 1.0 'festo) that can't be ignored, and Mozilla already is quite 'rock-hard'. Mozilla is an ongoing process that can't just be 'done' at 1.

Actually, I'm just playing devil's advocate. I pretty much agree with what you're saying. :)
