Drivers Update

Friday March 29th, 2002

The Status Reports was updated, and included some information on what are up to, and what's coming up:

" approved checkins for over 240 bugs this last week. We've taken a few more big-ticket items and have a couple to go. drivers will be ramping down this next week and actively soliciting fixes that we need to branch and have a Release Candidate 1 sometime (hopefully) late next week. We need to get RC1 out there quickly and get feedback on all the changes we've taken since 0.9.9 and at the same time we need the release to stand up so that users will put enough hours on it to give meaningful feedback. Please help us to get the builds into good shape over this next week with particular attention to recent regressions and topcrash+ bugs."

To this day exist some important and embarassing bugs.

Witness lack of View Source. The problems where the top half of text is misaligned with the bottom half of the text. This happens to me on almost every scroll of a page. Oo look at the problems where images ar displayed distorted, with lines going all through them.

These problems are minor to the developers, who want gee-whiz DOM and CSS compliance. But to the average user, its downright critical. "Look at Mozilla, what a joke, it cant every write text and draw images properly!"

These things absolutely must be polished and fixed before 1.0 is released. To say that 1.0 is almost ready because there are almost no noticible bugs left is a farce.
