Drivers Update

Friday March 29th, 2002

The mozilla.org Status Reports was updated, and included some information on what drivers@mozilla.org are up to, and what's coming up:

"drivers@mozilla.org 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."

The only way to really test the code is to use it in a daily way. If you only ran Mozilla over some test pages, you wouldn't see problems. This sounds like "banana software", but it is't - the code has been tested before and will be tested any further. The 1.0 release only says "ok, here's a stable codebase on which features you can depend on and do whatever you want with - build your own app upon it or even use it as it is, if you don't need more.
