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.

#73 SQL errors related to bandwidth

SQL errors are often caused by too many open connections to the database that hold too many locks. If you have a CGI waiting to send data down the wire, and it holds open connections, other newly-started CGIs won't be able to open connections and will throw up error pages.

In computer science terms: We have uninterruptible hold-and-wait of mutual exclusion resources (i.e. DB connections). One little circular wait condition will deadlock this whole site.

Temporary solution: while(no DB connections available) { sleep(1); }
