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!


#76 Preferences, shorter menus, and the like...

I for one like the shorter menus - they are easier to navigate and contain most of the functions I use. I would like to see back and forward re-added in places, and I personally like MPT's overall menu spec implementation at <http://mozilla.org/projects/ui/menus/shortcut/>, but there could be lots worse problems than there are.

As to preferences... I love having more preferences (providing they are well organized and accessible) - but I can also fully understand the need to limit them. I think an external application can be a good substitute, however, and way back when Aaron Anderson created one to edit the context menus. It seemed to work well but hasn't been updated since 0.9.6. <http://www.xulplanet.com/…ns&view=contexteditor> Maybe when 1.0 comes out we'll get an update :-)
