Mozilla 0.9.9 Released
Monday March 11th, 2002
mozilla.org today released what will be the last major milestone prior to 1.0, Mozilla 0.9.9. New features in this release include TrueType font support on Unix, SOAP support enabled, MathML support enabled on platforms that support it, new Print Preview toolbar, new Full Screen mode on windows, new popup window preferences, a fix for the zlib vulnerablility on Linux, and more.
With 0.9.9 out the door, the focus turns to the first release candidate of Mozilla 1.0, due later this month, or in early april. Also, expect numerous vendors to release product off the 1.0 branch including possibly Netscape and OEOne. We are working on setting up special Mozilla 1.0 forums, and should have them up by the end of today.
I have to say.. Although I don\\\'t normally post messages here, I wanted to let people know what a good experience I\\\'ve had with Mozilla 0.9.9. I\\\'ve used mozilla from time to time over the years, and had some good (and not so good) luck with it. Otherwise I\\\'ve used Konqueror for general browsing, given its speed. This latest milestone has been solid, the tab\\\'ed browsing great, and the overall product has been very good.
Congrats to everybody who has helped this project.. and remember, 1.0 is just another version. It will *continue* to do great things, even past a 1.0 release.
