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."

There are very few noticible bugs left, one of the last major ones, the minimization problem was fixed yesterday. I seriously doupt the press will find much wrong with this release. But believe it or not, mozilla RC1 is named so that it will get many eyes checking for bugs. Because believe it or not, mozilla is more concerned about being a good product than it is with press releases, as in it would love to have the press point out small bugs that havn't been noticed before by the development community (the average mozilla bug tester uses mozilla in a completly different way than the average news main stream press reporter would.) Therefor new bugs will get notice and fixed in time for the final release.
