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."

Oh come on; give me a break. We both know that mozilla RC1 is MUCH better than NS6.anyversion. This doesn't need to be an ongoing discussion. mozilla is better, thus I use mozilla. The reason I posted regarding the problems I had was because no one else already had, and I didn't know whether or not it was a problem anyone else was seeing. I always wait a few hours after a download is announced to read the comments of those who have already upgraded to keep an eye out for any showstopper type bugs.

And I have submitted/votedfor/commented on bugs in bugzilla. I just don't use that approach right after an upgrade only to find out that it was just a stupid profile problem that won't get a second look by any devs anyway because it's old news.

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