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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.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.

Hm.. Ok. I know that we have talked ALOT about mozillaquest and that the most of you are bored with this but after reading his new article I just have to write down my oppinion regarding his focusing on bugs!
I think he is forgetting a very important fact when he looks at all the bugs he can find on bugzilla.mozilla.org.
Everyone can view and file in bugs to bugzilla! And because of that:
* because it's so easy to file in a bug alot of people are doing it. If I'm using a program and the program crashes there is a very tiny chance that the programmers will be aware of this. I might go to the companys webpage and look for someone to contact. But it is very often you don't find a proper emailadress to send to. It's the opposite when it comes to Mozilla.
You just open up an account an send in the bug. Very easy... And you also feel that you are apart of the project (who would feel that sending in a bug to microsoft ?).
I don't deny that the Mozilla browser has alot of bugs left... BUT I'm just saying why there is so many of them. In my oppinion there could be 100 000 more bugs in Mozilla. Don't care aslong as I'm satisfied with my browser :)
