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.

Well you sounded like you just want the browser and someone else to fix the bugs. I apologise not to see what you really meant, english isn't my mother tongue.

>Oh come on; give me a break. We both know that mozilla RC1 is MUCH better than NS6.anyversion.

Yes it is. I think I haven't even downloaded those since 6.0. Galeon is quite good, suffers from same problem as other repackaged or custom made gecko browsers: Mozilla moves so quickly that they seem to lack all the candy that the latest nightlies have. (or seem to have)

>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'm puzzled why I even commented on your post then.
