Mozilla 1.0 RC1 Released

Thursday April 18th, 2002

mozilla.org today released the first 1.0 Candidate, in preparation for a final 1.0 build. They'll be using RC1 to evaluate where the 1.0 branch stands as far as crash bugs, and other things that drivers@mozilla.org are tracking. RC1's changes since 0.9.9 include the abilty to view the source of a cgi (the most duped bug), reorganized context and main menus, LDAP over SSL, return recipts, new animated mail alerts on Windows, Download Manager, final xul syntax changes, and numerious other bug fixes.

You can download RC1 from mozilla.org's Releases Page or read the Release Notes. We highly encourage you to download the talkback enabled builds, so crashes can be found and logged prior to 1.0. (These pages haven't reached mozilla.org yet, you can grab builds from the FTP site.)

Once people start using RC1 and drivers@mozilla.org get a handle on how the reception of it goes, they will be deciding whether or not to release another candidate or 1.0 itself. We'll keep you updated on this process, and let you know what is decided.

And apparently I didn't care to do it. As it was, it took me a good 20 minutes to move all the preferences, bookmarks, and saved passwords over to the new profile. When 1.0 is released, I intend to do exactly the same as I've been doing. Why should we have to recreate DATA when the only thing that ought to change is the underlying code. Without data integrity (And that includes protecting and extending it), the rest of the program is nearly useless.

So yep, I'm not in it to catch bugs. I intend to USE mozilla, not play with it.
