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.

You can download Mozilla 0.9.9 on mozilla.org's FTP site, or from their releases page.

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.


#6 TrueType Fonts

Anybody on Linux have any luck getting the new TrueType font support working? I went through the instructions (<http://www.mozilla.org/pr…ix/enabling_truetype.html>) for how to do it, but no dice. There's no indication that Mozilla "scans" my font directory at all, and the Fonts preferences do not list any TrueType fonts. I double-checked the settings in unix.js, but didn't see anything that should keep it from at least *attempting* to use the fonts. There's no error messages or anything, though.

I'm running on Linux 2.4.16 w/ XFree86 4.1.0, and I did make sure I've got FreeType installed properly and where it needs to be... This one's a real puzzler. :) Any ideas?
