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 cannot see why Mozilla "will not be taken seriously by the development community". The view-source oddities have been around all along (and have been there for previous Netscape releases < 4.x). Still I was using Netscape for testing because it had such nifties as syntax highlighting and a meaningful page/frame info.

Now we have not only a JS console, but a DOM inspector and a JS debugger (though I donÄt knwo how to use the latter - any help file somewhere?). And the new page info, which should be in 0.9.9 will be great.

So there is plenty of stuff for the developing community. But I have to agree that the mentioned bug is a pain for the devolper and it is a pity that one has to switch to IE (or perhaps Opera, etc?) in some situations.
