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.

Anyone who dual-boots or feels that dual-booting should be a real option for Moz users should vote for bug 12911, at <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12911> because a fix for this bug would allow full sharing of preferences, mail data, search engine choice, etc across platforms. This bug prevents anyone who dual-boots from accessing their mail or setting a default search engine on both platforms they boot to- the preferences are stored in a way that makes that data platform-specific, because absolute filenames are used. Please help get this bug acted on. Let your voice be heard!
