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.

One has nothing to do with the other when it comes to any builds besides the official mac, windows and linux builds. Just because someone contributes builds doesn't mean (s)he contributes a tinderbox. A tinderbox has to be available fulltime, making builds as often as it can spit them out. mozilla.org doesn't make FreeBSD builds nor does it contribute a tinderbox for FreeBSD. This is a purely voluntary contribution by someone willing to make daily builds (if they are daily).
