mozilla.org Branches for 1.0

Tuesday April 9th, 2002

mozilla.org today cut the MOZILLA_1_0_0_BRANCH for 1.0 to use. Expect to see an RC1 candidate sometime next week in order to see where the builds are as far as stability and usability. Work will continue on the branch up until the final 1.0 release, and beyond for point releases. An updated roadmap will be posted soon reflecting this. The trunk is now open to 1.1 alpha work, on the road to 2.0!

"I feel that the "Developer-only" response which I provoked IS a reasonable strategy. BUT, if this is the strategy for the Mozilla Browser, then the mozilla.org site should be cleaned up to reflect this. And, the Community should take steps to publicize this fact in upcoming press articles. To date, I've seen nothing about 1.0 being intended 'for Developers and Hackers only' within press articles regarding the upcoming release."

Huh? From <http://mozilla.org/releases/>: "We make binary versions of of Mozilla available for testing purposes only!". From <http://mozilla.org/>: "We provide binaries for testing and feedback."

The primary (or only, some will argue) purpose of Mozilla 1.0 is to freeze the APIs. It is not in any way intended to be an end-user release.
