Tree Closes Tonight for Mozilla 0.9.9
Tuesday February 19th, 2002
mozilla.org 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. mozilla.org 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.

<<Mozilla's prefs dialog seems rather woefully inadequate to me.[...]but it seems to me that some sort of expansion and reorganization is in order to address Mozilla's strengths and options rather than Netscape 4's.>> Well, what would you like to see?
<<did you bother to read my parenthetical explanation? Mozilla's CSS *broke*.>> Yes, I did. I addressed the issue in my response to your next Clue:
"Perhaps this means one should use less cutting edge tools, such as a Milestone build or the latest in the Netscape 6.x series."
As bad as NS 6.0 was, there's a point here -- it's labeled as production code, ready for the masses. Moz isn't. If you want stability, at least take the time to use the code that's labeled "production-ready". If you still find the bug, I'm ready to jump-start the wolves. I did when NS 6.0 came out.
<<If you can build and test pages with a browser that's incapable of running whatsoever, then please allow me to congratulate you on your ascention to godhood.>>
Y'know, I've never said Mozilla is the greatest browser ever. Not once. I use it, but it's one in a set of tools. It runs for me, right now. It's run for me on a number of different boxes & OS, and I'm not a killer C programmer. Has it failed? Oh, heck yes. But, obviously, it runs for a lot of people. And I'm sorry that it doesn't run for you. It does not automatically make Mozilla a crap product, no more than my inability to install Morpheus on my Win2K box makes it a crap product. And there are those who can fix that, potentially. I trust you've been in contact with them?
