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.

It really is okay to enter a duplicate bug (as long you never duplicate yourself :-). While everyone would rather duplicates never happened, it is better for the quality of Mozilla to have two reports than none at all. Yes, you are encouraged to do a little research before opening a bug, but don't feel guilty about it, as long as you enter all the required information. "Bad" bug reports that don't have important information like the Mozilla build information will be severely dealt with.
