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."

What is to deal with, someone wrote some code into Mozilla, that changed the way embeded and I keep stressing embeded because if one loads a SVG file, then the plugin works fine in Mozilla. There has been a change in the necko.dll and the 14 other necko.xpt files. I pointed this out, because all Mozilla browsers are affected by this and not just svg-mathml browsers.

All I've been getting is comments like the above and that Adobe is at fault.

I've done very little with Plugin SVG, because until #3 it really didn't work very well in Mozilla and I'm not interested in using IE.

But then Adobe came out with #3 and wham the right click context, where most of the controls for it are, worked. Then this came along and suddenly Adobe is a fault. Fine they couldn't read your minds and it seems that no one thought to inform them. They (Adobe) are not going to run out and write a new #4 plugin just for Mozilla or AOL, they have just finished shipping major upgrades of their products with W3C SVG as one of the new features. This means that for all Gecko users we are left sitting on the side line. If SVG was totally broken as you all seem to think perhaps this would look different, but it isn't. it is only not working in embeded files.
