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.

Please guys, that's not as much a case of trolling as you think it is. BOTH sides have excellent points. Yes, it's incredibly annoying and counter-productive for someone with multiple OS's to have multiple profiles, and it would be a great feature (I personally think it would be an excellent addition and should be implemented), plus it could be expanded to be multi-'puter capable etc., but on the same token, do you think this is something that's needed for 1.0 or soon thereafter? The vast majority of end-users do not double-boot, nor would they want to. We're at 0.9.9 and messing around with fundamentals should really be halted until well after we make a solid Mozilla 1 and maybe 1.1. I really don't think that this is a priority right now. And no, I don't dual-boot.
