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!

>Even though the drivers are trying to move towards an RC1 this next week, I prefer that we not Release the Product until it's ready for use as expected by its intended market. If there is now a 'schedule' which MUST be met, then I think that someone or some team needs to start spreading the word and setting expectations about the lack of an EMail spell checker in this release.

Just who is this intended market? Mozilla is not an enduser product, remember all those words you scrolled past last time you downloaded a milestone from Mozilla.org? They state that Mozilla binaries are released for testing purposes only.

If you want a version of Mozilla that is aimed at end-users, then download Netscape 6. It even has a built in spellchecker so that your "'baby' end users" don't get confused.
