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.

I't hasn't hit you yet that Mozilla _is_ for finding bugs. If you just want to use Mozilla use Netscape or something instead. I'm also mainly for just using Mozilla. But if I find a bug or what I think is a bug I do a search in Bugzilla - in some rare cases I'm the first one to find out it's a bug and file it.

Often I'm so lazy that I don't even bother to check if someone has already filed a bug, but on the other hand I'm so lazy that I don't bitch about those bugs either. If a bug annoys me I file it, or contribute something to already filed bug or vote it. But I just don't whine.

I'm just happy I can use a great browser free and in a small way be a part of it.
