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.


#172 Curious about state of Mozilla SVG...

My original purpose for finding a SVG build was that a friend was doing a paper on SVG and I opened my big mouth saying that it built into Mozilla. I looked a bit foolish when it wasn't. I think it was .98 or something that had SVG and MathML by default. All this piqued my curiousity about how there aren't any recent builds with SVG. Worse yet, I couldn't download an old build and get to work in conjunction with RC1. Previously, it seemed that all builds were mostly self-contained. By that I mean that I could install them in separate directories on a Win2K machine and they wouldn't necessary know about eachother (except bookmarks and the like).
