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've said this once before on this site and I'll keep saying it, even if mozilla isn't 1.0 the site should still be made so that it at least renders properly in it. It's not that hard, every site I've done looks the same in IE 4 NS4 and Mozilla all using one stylesheet javascript and html4. I think their quest to make it slim is overshadowing the bigger issue of advocating mozilla as a viable browser. Would you use a brower who doesn't render the main advocacy site of that browser correctly?
