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.

I was talking about the browser part and I don't use certificates. Have you reported that bug in Bugzilla? Bug Id? Other than that, I do use a lot of open windows, visit sites with plugins and javascript. Admittedly, that kind of sites are more capable of crashing Mozilla but I am also pleased by the fact that crashing bugs are treated as an issue of very high priority.

Indeed people do not have the same habbits when browsing, this explains the different experiences being reported. Btw, this is the best comment I read from Mr. Strauss for months. If you, him and others could dedicate some free time in reporting / triaging crasher bugs instead of simply complaining, Mozilla would even better, regarding to stability. You already do that? Ok, again retracting my words...
